Saturday Night Shock: An American Werewolf in London

American Werewolf

Saturday Night Shock presents: **American Werewolf in London**
 
A film that is BOTH terrifying and funny at the same time. This John Landis landmark depicts the story of two college yanks wandering the English moors on vacation, David (David Naughton) and Jack (Griffin Dunne) happen upon a quaint pub with a mysterious patronage who warn them not to leave the road when walking after dark. Irreverent of such advice as characters in horror films always are, the two decide to find a short cut….and the rest is just EPIC! Tickets at this link.
 
Film starts 8pm.

The Friday Film Session: The Terminator

The Terminator

The Friday Film Session presents – **Terminator**
 
We wanted to play tribute to this film epic (is 1 or 2 better that is the question!) with another Friday Film Session here at the nest. You know the plot surely by now? In 1984 Los Angeles, a Terminator, a cyborg assassin programmed to kill a young woman named Sarah Connor, arrives from the future. Shortly afterwards, Kyle Reese, a soldier sent to protect Connor from the Terminator, arrives. After which all sorts of awesome mayhem erupts! Our own personal favourite scene is the ‘nightclub’, cannot wait to see it on the BIG screen. Tickets here.
 
As ever expect themed drinks and eats on the night.

The Film Edit: Big Trouble in Little China

Big Trouble

The Film Edit presents **Big Trouble in Little China**

Can you feel the anticipation for this one?! We have and so let’s all just have a riotous party watching BIG TROUBLE on the BIG SCREEN. Oh the plot….

Somewhere in the 80s, trucker Jack Burton arrives in a small town to deliver his cargo and win a few bucks playing cards with the locals down at the Chinese market. Practically bankrupting nearly all of his opponents, his friend Wang bets him a game of “double or nothing” to try and regain his cash and loses. Jack wants his well earned money, but Wang explains he doesn’t have the cash on him and that’ll he pay later because he’s due to pick up a long, lost girlfriend from the airport. Convinced Wang’s pulling something sly, Jack insists he drive Wang to the airport so they can stick together. However, at the airport Wang’s girlfriend is captured by the Lords of Death, a streetwise Chinatown gang. She is essential for an upcoming plan to revive a thousand year old Chinese sorcerer and bring him back to the world as a mortal again. So begins a daring adventure to rescue Wang’s girl and stop the ruthless operation that’s going on down in Little China. Teaming up with a cast of very different individuals, Jack and Wang delve deep into an uncovering conspiracy in which everything’s not exactly as it seems. Here comes big trouble… Tickets here.

“Are you ready Jack? I was BORN ready.”

Film plays 8pm.

Comedy classic from the ‘Saturday Night Live’ stable which comes packed with car chases, music and cameo appearances.

Resolving to get their old band together and stage a fund-raising gig, the brothers have God on their side but everyone else against them – and that includes a bunch of Country and Western rednecks, an angry chapter of neo-Nazi thugs, the massed ranks of the Chicago police force, and Jake’s psychotic ex-girlfriend Camille (Carrie Fisher).
