Chris (Kaluuya) heads to upstate New York with his girlfriend Rose (Williams), for a dinner with her supposedly liberal parents (Whitford and Keener), only to find that things are very much other than they seem. Peele’s deep understanding of horror movies tropes combines with his own experiences as a black American, to make a sharp, taut and precisely crafted reflection on racial tensions in America.

Documentary examining race relations in America, based on James Baldwin's unfinished manuscript Remember This House, which is told through the stories of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Dr Martin Luther King. Director Raoul Peck makes use of Baldwin's writing over archive footage, news clippings and vintage photographs, excellently balancing Samuel L Jackson's narration with relevant imagery to produce a thought-provoking and affecting piece of work.

Reluctant hero Max (Hardy) is drawn into helping Imperator Furiosa (Theron, excellent), who's liberated a group of sexually enslaved women and is being pursued for her trouble by the grotesque Immortan Joe (Keays-Byrne). Precision-executed lunacy, a brilliantly feminist 'western on wheels' with a generous helping of heart. Special black & chrome (ie black & white) edition.

Hellfire Video Club present
MIRACLE MILESteve De Jarnatt/ 1988/ USA/ 87mins/ Cert:15 - Thu 27 April // 20:00 Tickets: £5 (full) / £4 (concession) This is it. Join Hellfire video Club as they welcome the end times with open arms. We're excited to present a rare screening of the cult apocalyptic-date-movie "MIRACLE MILE" (Steve De Jarnatt, 1988). The film follows a young Anthony Edwards (from ER, remember that?) as he meets and falls in love with Julie the day before the world ends. Warm, fuzzy & comforting John Hughes-vibes collapse into frenzied desperation as their paths cross with a myriad of eccentric strangers, yuppies and weirdos. A beautifully-1980's Tangerine Dream score is the icing on the cake. If you're unfamiliar with this film YA GOTTA SEE IT! HFVC DJ's will be in the bar spinning pre and post-apocalyptic sounds.
*On-line tickets are on sale until 3 hours before the advertised start time.*
