You’re Gonna Need A Bigger Boat (Movie Quiz)

  • This location is shown only to members

  • I have been speaking to some members recently about other ways for us to express our love for cinema. This is why I have decided to try and arrange for us all to attend some movie quiz nights.

    After having searched online and received some recommendations I decided to make an event for "You’re Gonna Need A Bigger Boat".

    On the 04/06/2014 we attended our first quiz and I can honestly say I was very pleased with the outcome. Out of 33 teams we ended up finishing in the Top 10 with 54.5 points. The winning team had 63.5 points so I don't think we did that badly at all.

    Please note that the quiz is no longer held at our usual Kentish Town location, instead we will be will be at The Ritzy in Brixton this month. Tickets are available to buy in advance and it usually sells out, so I'd recommend getting them sooner rather than later! 

    The quiz starts at 19:30 but I should be there from 18:00.

    If you like our events why don't you like our Facebook Page or write a Group Review?

    ***If you arrive earlier please could you save us a table/area inside the bar, thank you. Also if you arrive late we CANNOT guarantee there will be a seat for you**


    Meetup Location: I will be waiting inside the bar which is up the stairs at the cinema. If you arrive early please go inside and save us a table/area if possible, thank you.

    **If you arrive late we CANNOT guarantee there will be a seat for you**

    Tickets: A ticket to the quiz show costs £5 per person. Please buy your entry ticket in advance online on the Ritzy (Picturehouse) website, as there are a limited number of seats and it usually sells out.

    What You Can Win: The winners and runners up get to select from film-related goodies including cinema tickets, T-shirts, DVD boxsets etc.

    There is also have a STOP! round, where the first person to guess the answer from a list of clues wins a spot prize.


    About The Quiz:

    Now in its tenth year, You’re Gonna Need A Bigger Boat is a monthly audiovisual film quiz that has become something of a cult event for movie nerds from across the capital and beyond. Premiering each month in north London (originally at The Boogaloo pub in Highgate), the quiz can also be played at the Hackney Attic (Hackney Picturehouse), Upstairs at the Ritzy (Ritzy Picturehouse, Brixton), at The Lord Nelson (Brentford) and at Big Society, Oxford.

    Immerse yourself in our big-screen, big-sound experience as our multimedia quiz brings you pictures, posters, clips and soundtracks from the world of film.

    The quiz itself starts around 7:30pm and usually takes around two-and-a-half hours (this includes two intervals for marking and drink refills). While tables are reserved for those taking part in the quiz, it's best to get there as early as you can to grab the best seats!
