Fortune & Glory Film Club is an interactive experience, bringing some of our favourite cult classics and laughable dross to life!
A Double Feature Special! Warm up your CRTs, adjust your tracking, and pop your kick stand for our modern-nostalgic double bill of Kung Fury and Turbo Kid!
Kickstarter ass-kicker, Kung Fury judo chops classic tropes from buddy cops, martial arts, and arcade action into this incredible short film.
Turbo Kid gives us a backy to the post-apocalyptic wasteland of 1997. Frequently described as Mad Max on a BMX, this film combines bittersweet nostalga with brutal action and excitement! Gory, but not scary, this is a B-movie with a heart. (A heart pumping a gyser of blood, but a heart all the same!)
And on top of this, all the usual F&G gubbins:
⊙ Goody Bags full of interactive surprises to use throughout the film! ⊙ Costumes - whether they be poundshop tat or full Cosplay! ⊙ Drinking games (alcohol entirely optional)! ⊙ Stupid competitions with great/crap prizes! ⊙ A playlist of your favourite themed tunes! ⊙ A toastie-munching interval! ⊙ The innuendo horn!
We don't really revel in cinema, we frolic! Expect a shared experience, games, shouting silly stuff out, and (most importantly) a lot of laughs. BUT - there's no peer pressure here! You can join in as much or as little as you please.
The Venue: The Toast Bar is situated above the National Videogame Arcade in Hockley. The building is accessible, and neutral bathrooms are available. The bar offers a tasty menu of toasties and cakes, milkshakes, beers, soft drinks, cocktails, and hot drinks to keep us satisfied throughout our adventures
