Feeling pretty pooped and we didn’t make half the screenings Rodger did! That man is an excellent machine. Apologies for not making it to all the great screenings that went on. What a blast of a September though. Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who came out, showed films, sold tickets, tore tickets, promoted events, served food and drinks, or tidied up, you own it!
We’re so grateful that Zeus did not piss on us during Big Trouble, Oldboy or Metropolis. However you feel about Fritz Lang (has anyone checked recently to see whether his head is missing too?), the screening of Metropolis at Cobden Chambers was simply magical. It made our eyes very happy, almost as happy as Jodorowsky’s latest masterpiece. Here’s hoping that Dance of Reality gets a longer run somewhere in Nottingham, so that anyone unable to snag a ticket for this, gets a chance to see one of the best films made in recent years.
Bad Boy Bubby was let loose all over again and gave us an extra special night out at the beautiful Savoy. We were treated to The Wanderers on glorious 35mm print, oh the magic of prints (thank you Noel & Leigh for your projection dedication), a Bloody Moon and …er, a Bloody Moon …whoah! However, our Scalarama showstopper was crowned with Ken Russell’s impressive member in Lisztomania. If you missed it, you really missed out.
Don’t get too bummed out though, there’s still time to buy a ticket for Mayhem, which we still haven’t done yet, in fact I’m going to do that right now x
