Smash hit experimental performance night FLIM NITE returns to Newcastle to retell classic films the only way they can: nonsensically, outlandishly and with wild-eyed enthusiasm.
What would 'Flash Gordon' (1980) look like chewed up and spat out by comedians, theatremakers, writers and musicians?
Watch as our acts distort 'Flash Gordon' into something silly, beautiful or unrecognisable for your viewing pleasure. We have entrusted each one of them with a chunk of the film to re-enact, riff around, mash up or explode. There's no way of telling what will happen.
We will not be showing a movie. We will be making a FLIM.
Cult hit FLIM NITE returns to Newcastle to spread its unique brand of mischief after three years of sowing highly-acclaimed chaos in Manchester.
Flim Nite is a self-styled ‘death to movies’ night where popular films are retold through poetry, comedy, music and more.
"The group take a hammer to well-known films and smash them into something completely different – think a smorgasbord of musical interludes, a dab of poetry and an added bit of standup comedy. Trust us, it's unlike any other night around!" - The Skinny
