THEY LIVE & PREDATOR screenings at Leamington Camouflage Festival

LUC is teaming up with Playing The Field for two camouflage themed screenings at Foundry Wood on 2nd & 3rd September as part of the Leamington Camouflage Festival.

they live flyer 1On Friday 2nd, we present present John Carpenter’s classic 1988 cult satire action flick They Live.

When a drifter, played by Rowdy Roddy Piper, comes into possession of some very special sunglasses, he is able to see the world as it really is – an oppressive nightmare where the ruling class are really a bunch of evil aliens manipulating the masses behind a seamless facade. It also contains the longest fight scene in cinema history – so something for everyone.

Also at this screening Dr Daniel Winchester will be presenting his findings on paranormal extraterrestrial happenings in the local area – you will be shocked and amazed.

A team of commandos on what they think is a rescue mission in a Central American jungle find themselves being stalked by an invisible extra-terrestrial hunter. It gets messy.

At this screening Dr Winchester will also be presenting his findings on a shocking tale of extraterrestrial invasion in Leamington Spa – oh yes.


Both screenings will take place outdoors at Leamington’s Foundry Wood, bench seating will be provided but feel free to bring your own for superior posterior comfort if you like.

There will be a licensed bar to keep you refreshed and hot food including options for both carnivores and vegetarians.

Doors will open at 6.30, with film action beginning at 8.

Have a Fright in Foundry Wood with The Blair Witch Project

On Friday 6th May Leamington Underground Cinema and Playing The Field present The Blair Witch Project at a special, extra spooky outdoor screening at Leamington Spa’s Foundry woods.

Join us for this classic tale of a group of student filmmakers searching for evidence of something evil lurking in the woodland of Burkittsville, Maryland.

Prior to the screening we will have an exclusive video introduction from a supernatural expert detailing a dark chapter in the occult history of Leamington Spa which links the foundry site to a centuries old tragedy, a mysterious suicide and the satanic rituals of Aleister Crowley.

To keep your nerves calm and you thirst quenched there will be a licensed bar as well as hot food on sale. Bench seating will be available, but please bring your own camping chairs if you would like to have a slightly comfier journey into the horror of the woods.

Tickets are still available at the time of writing from wegottickets, specifically from:

Doors open at 7.30pm, with the film action commencing at 8.30pm. As this event is outdoors and at night, please dress to keep warm and dry – feel free to perform any pagan rituals you may know to keep the weather agreeable.

Our Life Of Brian screening gleefully endorsed by The Telegraph and Daily Mail

Screen Shot 2016-04-26 at 17.53.49Huge thanks to strangely pervy, right-wing, shit rags The Telegraph and The Daily Mail for promoting our forthcoming Life Of Brian screening. Nothing like a clearly legit, but anonymous quote and some ctrl-c, ctrl-v action to demonstrate the art of journalism at its finest.

As you can imagine tickets are selling rather well, so grab some quick if you don’t want to miss this ‘blasphemous’ event, which has ‘sparked outrage’ and ‘anger’ then grab them from wegottickets right now for just £10

LUC to screen Life Of Brian, The Blues Brothers and more at All Saints Church

Leamington Underground Cinema can today announce that we will be bringing a series of exciting cult cult movie screenings the huge, iconic Leamington Spa All Saints Parish Church.

The first two screenings lined up are the classic 1980 musical comedy The Blues Brothers and Monty Python’s Life Of Brian, which I think we can all agree is probably the funniest film ever made and almost certainly the most appropriate film for the location.

Starring Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi as the eponymous siblings, The Blues Brothers is a riotous mix of outrageous car chases, classic comedy and peerless musical cameos from the likes of James Brown, Aretha Franklin and Ray Charles. The screening will be preceded by a short blues set from ‘Kentucky’ James Knight for your musical pleasure.

Released to more than a little controversy in 1979, The Life Of Brian is the quintessential Monty Python film, deeply satirical and profoundly hilarious. Set in Biblical times, it follows the struggles of Brian Cohen, a man at odds with the Roman occupation who is definitely not a messiah, but rather a very naughty boy. The Life Of Brian will be supported  by ‘Music You Don’t Usually Hear Played On A Church Organ’ performed by Florence Ellis.

The Blues Brothers screening will take place on Friday 15th April, while The Life of Brian will screen on Saturday 28th May.

Tickets for both screenings will be priced at a very reasonable £10 each in advance or on the door. To help you all feel charitable, 50% of the profits from ticket sales is going towards the continued upkeep and maintenance of the Church. 

Thirsty film viewers will be pleased to hear that a bar will be available at both events to keep everyone refreshed.

Following these screenings, LUC will be announcing more films to screen at the church during the rest of the year, including events to take place during the fourth Leamington Underground Cinema Festival which will run from the 11th to the 19th of November.

Tickets are available now from the following links:
