You know how it goes – the clocks go back, the nights get darker earlier, it’s colder, it’s wetter, windier – the end of the year can suck.
What many of us need is a bit of a pick-me-up and what better way to give yourself that much needed boost than by filling up on Turtle Power.
This November we will be screening cult favourite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990) in all it’s awesomely awesome awesomeness. High fives all round!
Released long before Marvel came along and made comic book superhero movies a mainstay in cinema programming, Turtles – adapted from the original comic book series and adopting elements of the late-80s children’s cartoon – broke into the mainstream and became the biggest independent film of the time (the 6th highest earner of 1990). Go indie cinema!
After coming into contact with a mysterious green ooze, four sewer dwelling turtles grow into walking talking mutant vigilantes, trained in the art of ninjutsu by their master, Splinter – a rat. When a swarming gang known of criminals, led by the evil Shredder, threatens to take control of New York City it is up to the awesome foursome to take up the fight, learn the truth about their past and save the city from certain ruin.
Filled with action, one-liners and pizza, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is great fun for all the family so why not bring the all along – the kids, Mum, Dad, Grandad Bernie with the gammy hip – everybody’s welcome!
The screening takes place on Thursday 21st November and tickets are available now from our online ticket office.
Our feature presentation will be preceded by a selection of short films featuring talking animals, because why not?
And as well as our usually offering of tea, coffee and homemade cake on arrival we’ll be restocking the hot chocolate and – wait for it – serving up a slice or two of totally rad homemade pizza during the interval.
Now if anything deserves a ‘cowabunga’ we know it’s that…
