Remote Control Film Night 14

Leamington Underground Cinema presents another free online film night that you can enjoy from absolutely everywhere, except perhaps some of those scary countries with mad dictators like North Korea and America.

On the evening of Thursday 19th October we will be curating a selection of the finest, strangest and most entertaining short film entertainment from around the internet. There may also be a creative challenge or two to get invoved in…

The fun will begin at 7.30pm GMT, please ensure you’ve been to the toilet before we start and remain at least 5% above horizontal throughout – it is for your own safety.

You can join in in on the Leamington Underground Cinema Facebook page or by following our twitter feed at

Remote Control Film Night v12

Bollocks To Valentines Day 2 – A Remote Control Film Night

b2vd2Valentines Day. Sigh. What a nightmare. Probably the most soul-sapping day of the year. A contrived, lonely and ultimately depressing experience for a significant proportion of the population…

It’s also quite rubbish if you are single (make your own comedy drum roll noise here please).

The LUC glorious central committee may be a bunch of stoic, stony faced hopeless romantics – but we’re just as sick of it as everyone else.

So for the second year running we present a very special on-line remote control film night that sticks two fingers up to Thorntons, waves its bum at Interflora and yells “Bollocks” to Valentines Day. Again.

Join us on Saturday 14th February from the comfort of your house, hotel room or secure unit – the fun takes place on the LUC Facebook page or Twitter (@LeamUCinema #rcfnight) from 8pm. Expect a cavalcade of hand-picked cinematic treats and, almost certainly, the return of the patented and deeply worrying “LUC Love Limerick Competition”.

REMOTE CONTROL FILM NIGHT – Tuesday 25th – 7.30pm

Tomorrow night brings another instalment of LUC’s online film sensation… The Remote Control Film Night is the free cinematic event you can enjoy without leaving the house – ideal for the agoraphobic, antisocial and imprisoned. Our huge underground network of ancient valve-driven computers has been scouring the internet for the best audio-visual entertainment which we will impart to you in a steady stream over the course of a couple of hours.

Join in from 7.30 pm on the LUC Facebook page or follow us on Twitter (where the #rcfnight hashtag will get an outing) for an evening of brilliant, entertaining and possibly slightly dodgy short films and maybe a competition or two. Why not gather together with your friends? Especially if they have more drinks in their house than you do.

Remote Control Film Night 5 28/2/2013

rcfn5On the evening of 28th February we will be powering up the generator in the LUC broadcast bunker, reinforcing the perimeter guard and undergoing humiliatingly rigorous quarantine procedures.

All of this will be to bring you the 5th Remote Control Film Night – an evening of the coolest on-line short films and film based quiz-type fun. There will be prizes and everything.

So gather yourselves around your most convenient web based appliance, ensure there is a readily available source of snacks, alcohol and at least one empty bucket at hand.

You can join in on the night at the LUC Facebook page, or by following @LeamUCinema on twitter.
