Oddeon, Sheffield's premiere b-movie cinema, has returned — with the winds of the yuletide spirit underneath its wings.
Christmas is a beautiful time for bad cinema — the silver screen awash with mawkish sentimentality. It's a perfect time to gather the Oddeon family and enjoy the best of the worst of this magnificent time of year.
As ever all feature screenings will be preceded by interactive games and found footage mashups.
Our main feature for this evening is:
The original Gremlins was a Christmas blockbuster released in the height of summer. Gremlins 2 has nothing to do with Christmas, so let's watch it in December! Devised as a more anarchic cartoonish sequel to its darker predecessor, Gremlins 2 is a film we're likely familiar with from the version that semi-regularly makes its way to terrestrial television. However, many of the scenes originally cut from the film's final release betray the truly confused and ridiculous spectacle the film originally was. As a Christmas treat to all Oddeon fans we're stitching this footage back into the film to watch Gremlins 2 as it was never meant to be seen: warts and all.
