What we're about

This is for people who are into new bands and old films, particularly cult and alternative stuff that's relatively affordable. C'mon, do you really want to join two different groups?

If you have interesting taste and a willingness to organise people, collar me at an event because I'm looking to build up a group of hosts who are into a diverse range of stuff. In the meantime, if there's something you want to go to, say so in the Discussions and I'll see what I can do.

Two other points: 1) If you want to go to something it's best to book over - these events often sell out (yes, even the movies!), and 2) If you come to an event and can't find anyone post on the event page and we'll look for you.

Three Identical Strangers @ Screen25


Let’s meet there at 7pm for a drink and bite to eat before the film starts at 7:45. Remember to buy your tickets in advance as it will probably sell out. https://www.screen25.com/whats-on/three-identical-strangers Dir. Tim Wardle • 2018 • UK/US • Documentary • 97 mins • Cert 12A Sometimes it’s the only true stories that can be stranger than fiction. Three Identical Strangers documents a set of identical triplets who were adopted separately at birth, and only making the discovery of each other’s existence through a chance encounter when they were 19. A film that takes you on an unexpected journey with twists and turns, and makes you question the nature Vs. nurture debate, Three Identical Strangers appears to be a tale of reunion, until it questions why they were separated in the first place. We’re pleased to announce that we’ll be screening award-winning short film Marigolds before the main feature.

Mad Max: Fury Road - Black and Chrome Edition

Prince Charles Cinema

A rare chance to see something truly special on a big screen, the PCC is holding a one-off showing of the Black and Chrome special edition of Fury Road, in which one of the most amazing cinematic experiences of the last few years is rejigged into glorious monochrome, and comes out looking like DW Griffiths reimagined by Anton Corbijn, but a hundred times more metal. Watch this and tell me you don't want to see it in full: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNykS4VlnwE Tickets here. This one almost certainly will sell out: https://princecharlescinema.com/PrinceCharlesCinema.dll/WhatsOn?f=1578558 Film starts at 8.50pm, we'll be meeting in the Garrick down the road for a quick one from 8pm (though they are showing the colour version beforehand if you're feeling really adventurous).

Molly Nilsson

Moth Club (Old Traders Hall)

Molly Nilsson has a voice that sounds like it was carved out of ice and she looks like she's the only human being to exist in actual technicolor. She's also a terrific songwriter, playing something that sounds like Julee Cruise's Twin Peaks music filtered through Berlin nighttime. Tickets are £13.75 on Dice: https://dice.fm/event/qn6by-molly-nilsson-6th-feb-moth-club-london-tickets?_branch_match_id=580554444699824727 Here are some videos.

It's the Alt Gigs and Cult Cinema drinks social!

Southwark Tavern

Since the last one was so much fun, let's get together again and brave the long winter getting to know each other over a drink or two somewhere where it's warm and the drinks are good. The Southwark Tavern is opposite one of the London Bridge tube exits so easy for everyone to get to straight from work - and it serves food. The pub used to be a debtors prison and we'll be sitting in one of the old cells in the basement.
