Popular performance cabaret Flim Nite comes to Alphabetti Theatre on Friday 27th April for its second Newcastle show.

Flim Nite is a movie night like no other. At each event, a well known and well loved cult film is dished out to comedians, poets, musicians, storytellers and more and put through the mincer. Each performer is given a portion of the film to retell in whatever way they see fit, resulting in a brand new take on a classic, at turns hilarious and wild.

Founded in Manchester where it has grown a strong following, Flim Nite is branching out with shows across the country. Their previous visit to Newcastle earlier in March saw the dissection of Jurassic Park, and this month another 90s romp is put under Flim Nite’s kaleidoscopic microscope…it’s The Matrix!

Whether or not gravity defying stunts will be on display remains to be seen, but Flim Nite’s esoteric and highly entertaining patchwork is definitely worth witnessing.
