1 MARCH 2008
Beardy Chris-lookalike Paul Giamatti and supposedly hunky Thomas Haden Church boost worldwide sales of Pinot Noir tenfold in this wordy boozy buddy movie. Not much happens, but you’ll really want a glass of wine afterwards.
The Truman Show
12 APRIL 2008
Ever feel like everyone’s watching you? Jim Carrey does, mainly because he’s a gurning attention seeker, but also because he plays Truman Burbank in this bonkers reality TV satire. Bonus: is possibly world’s shortest film*.
St Elmo’s Fire
3 MAY 2008
Exciting yuppie film featuring a frankly ludicrous suicide attempt by Demi Moore. Worth watching if only for the amazin’ sax solo at the crappy pine nightclub. Look, what do you want from me? If you want a decent 20s-crisis movie, rent Reality Bites. If you want a bloody good laugh, watch this. You won’t be sorry†.
7 JUNE 2008
Puppets by Jim Henson. Music by David Bowie. Codpiece by God. What more can be said about Labyrinth? Only that it is the finest piece of trippy, muppet-based musical fairytale you will ever clap eyes on, and you should watch it immediately. Well, perhaps on 7 June. That's when it's scheduled for, after all.
Back to the Future Trilogy
TO BE CONFIRMED
Prepare for 1.21 gigawatts of fun, with this right rollicking ride-slash-romp through the eighties world of Marty, Doc and Biff. For maximum matchsticks-supporting-eyelids impact, we'll be screening the entire trilogy back-to-back, so bring some adult nappies.
Classic Comedy Night
TO BE CONFIRMED
A bit different this one, the idea is that y'all bring along a single episode of your favourite comedy show, and we screen some mad, schizophrenic, disparate selection of comedy that ranges from the kooky to the krazee by way of the kwuite krap. Possibly.
9 FEBRUARY 2008
Bustin’ makes me feel good! In an innocent age of bubble perms, neon food and vivisection, King of the ‘80s Bill Murray leads a motley troupe of mugging cretins in a mission to hoover up ghosts. Relax and enjoy the ‘special’ effects in this scarier-than-you-remember kids’ classic.
