New Mystery Film Screening Announced For 21st January

mystery header.png

According to economists, philosophers, sociologists, journalists, medical professionals, religious leaders, the military and your mum – the second half of January is definitely the most depressing time of the year.

So to counter this Leamington Underground Cinema and The Drawing Board are putting on an especially entertaining film event on Sunday 21st January to cheer you up for the final stretch before February, when the Christmas adverts will no doubt start up again.

To make things especially interesting, tickets for this slap up movie treat will be half price if you buy them before we announce exactly what we will be showing.

So for the risk-taking, YOLO punters, tickets are £4, if you wait until after Christmas to find out what is happening, the price is £8.

It’s all a bit Deal or No Deal, but good (and with a strict no Noel Edmonds guarantee).

This event will be happening on both floors of the Drawing Board, with special immersive drinking opportunities on hand for the thematically inclined.


(Also available at the bar in The Drawing Board)

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.


predator flyer 1Then on Saturday 3rd, brace yourselves for John MacTiernan’s peerless 1987 action flick, Predator.

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.

WandICaskPoster1000pxLeamington Underground Cinema and The Cask and Bottle are teaming up to bring you a pop-up cinema season of the greatest movies for the discerning modern drinker.

Tickets for this exclusive screening are just £5 and – for those that like to demand some booze – include one free drink from this selection taken from the epic list of substances consumed in the film, all of which are far superior to meths:
– a large sherry
– one of our famous gin and tonics
– a pint of cider (ice in the cider)
– a whisky
– a pint of ale
– a glass of (fine) wine.

(rumours of cake are circulating)

The feature will be kicking off at 9.30, but there may well be some special cinematic treats prior to that. You can get tickets on the door, but to be sure of your place you can purchase them from either The Cask & Bottle, or The Clarendon right now.

Any fucker missing this will definitely rue the day!
