Society Image

…’Society’ (Brian Yuzna, 1989, rated 18, 99mins).

Starring Billy Warlock (the Baywatch hunk, no less!), Devin DeVasquez, Evan Richards

Shelved in America for three years Society became a VHS legend and still stings today with its mix of gross out body horror and social satire. Bill Whitney seems to have it all: he’s popular, has a mansion in Beverly Hills and a cheerleader girlfriend. But when he obtains a cassette of what sounds like his family engaged in a murderous orgy, his life will never be the same again…

Tickets are on sale NOW: www.curzoncinemas.com or call the box office: 0871 703 3988.

the definition is this…

“The screening of non-mainstream pictures at midnight was aimed at building a cult film audience, encouraging repeat viewing and social interaction in what was originally a countercultural setting. The term midnight movie is now often used in two different, though related, ways: as a synonym for B movie, reflecting the relative cheapness characteristic of late-night movies both theatrically and on TV, and as a synonym for cult film”.

The fun starts on Fri Feb 29th 2008!

Yes! it’s a leap year! we recommend you sign up to the Curzon cinemas email newsletter (www.curzoncinemas.com) to keep up to date on developments. We are in the process of booking the first film and it will be an absolute GEM!
