Troma Double Bill: Toxic Avenger and Class of Nuke ’Em High

Forget the Fringe – there’s no better place to be this week than watching the disgracefully good double bill of Toxic Avenger and Class of Nuke ’Em High. These public screenings of two 1980s classics from the cult shock exploitation production and distribution company Troma Entertainment will be followed by a Q & A with Troma co-founder Lloyd Kaufmann. Cult Fiction, a new rare and deleted film store in Newington, Edinburgh, sponsors this event. Some tickets are still available.
