We’re kicking off 2016 by taking you back into the past, to a time when Video Stores ruled the high street, when Be Kind Rewind was a motto to live by and when our minds were expanded by the content of simple little black plastic cases!
Join us on the night as we guide you through the world of the Video Store: from in-store trailer tapes, to many VHS & Betamax finds; from Customer Service Guides, to what we’d feature if we ever set up a Duke Video Store and beyond!
We’ll be hitting you right between the eyes with clips, oddities, trailers, VHS tapes and lots of store related finds that we’ll be watching with you on the night for the first time! So join us as the Duke pays tribute to the amazing places that we all love with VIDEO STORE NIGHT!
Monday 25th January 2016 – Phoenix Artist Club
FREE ENTRY all night!
So with DukeFest over we’re now looking at what other film chaos we can unleash this Summer, here’s a breakdown of what else we’ve got coming up for you in the next few months:
Monday 27 July – 8th Birthday Blow Out Film Party!
Yes we turn 8 this year and we’re celebrating a month early due to the Camden Fringe Festival taking over The Phoenix all through August. Come and join us for a night of the unknown as we guide you into the most outer reaches of film weirdness with an evening of shorts, trailers, clips, found footage, oddities, giveaways and more.
Friday 7 August – Sunday 9 August – Nine Worlds Geekfest
We’re really pleased to be heading back to the amazing Nine Worlds Geekfest for 3 days of film fun starting with us going super late night on the Friday with an 11PM to 3AM show, they won’t know what’s hit ‘em! The Saturday we’ll be running a board game slot in the afternoon before hosting a Sci-Fi shorts section that we’ve programmed in the evening. Rounding off the Sunday, Night Of The Trailers will be hitting the audience with a Best Of Trailers & Found Footage show.
Saturday 29 August – FrightFest
We’re back at FrightFest with a killer double bill! Join us at 8.30PM for the UK premiere of the amazing Turkish cult film documentary Remake, Remix, Rip Off which lifts the lid on all those wild Turkish action films and remakes that we love so much. Then at 10.45PM join us for the Duke @ FrightFest Late Night Party, where we’ll have as many special guests from the festival as possible joining us on stage to show you their favourite trailers, clips, scenes or anything else they want to bring along!
Monday 21 September
We’re back at the Phoenix and slightly earlier this month simply due to both of us heading off to Austin for FantasticFest. We’ve not decided the theme for the night yet, but we’ll let you know as soon as we’ve got it all set up.
