This winter viewers can grab their Mogwais and torches and head to Leicester’s Firebug bar for an amazing trip to snowy Kingston Falls with Midlands Movies. There will be Christmas food (to be eaten before midnight), competition prizes, film treats and more.

The organisers will again be showcasing local moviemakers before the main event to keep promoting and assisting the regional talent in the area to open up their films to a wider audience.

“We’ve now hit double figures with our 10th amazing night in conjunction with Firebug” says Editor Mike Sales. “We’ve even been asking actors from the films to send a message before the screening. First was the very kind Dennis Hayden (one of the terrorists in Die Hard) and then Ross Harris (Joey in Airplane) which gave a special feel to each of those shows”.

“We also hope the audience will get heavily involved by dressing up and taking part in prize draws and other fun, whilst we will be providing complimentary popcorn and further film surprises”.

Midlands Movies events began in Summer 2015 and have seen packed audiences get involved in the successful nights which have included a Halloween screening of ’Shaun of the Dead’, a comedy festival showing of ‘Airplane’ and a visit from a Stormtrooper on Star Wars night (see photo links below).

Gremlins is a 1984 American comedy horror film directed by Joe Dante about a young man who receives a strange creature as a pet, which then spawns other creatures who transform into small evil monsters. This story was continued with a sequel, Gremlins 2: The New Batch and both have developed a cult following over the years.

So be prepared to fight a gang of Gremlins and head down for a spectacular seasonal adventure as you explore an entertaining evening of monstrous mayhem and Christmas fun for one very special night.

Catch the Midlands Movie’s screening of Gremlins at Firebug on Wednesday 21st December. Entry is Free with a suggested donation of £3.
