Pulp Fiction is a 1994 American crime film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino starring John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis and Uma Thurman. It tells the stories of several Los Angeles criminals and won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival as well as being nominated for seven Oscars, eventually winning the award for Best Original Screenplay.
Widely regarded as Tarantino’s masterpiece, the film features an eclectic range of mucis by various artists. Notable tracks include Dick Dale’s now-iconic rendition of Misirlou and Dusty Springfield’s version of Son of a Preacher Man.
Midlands Movies will again be showcasing local moviemakers before the main event to help regional talent open up its films to a wider audience. A trailer for crime thriller Essex Heist, made by Leicester filmmaker Steve Lawson of Creativ Studios [www.creativ-studios.com], will be shown before the main screening and music.
“We hope the audience will get heavily involved by dressing up, having a dance and taking part in other fun, whilst we will be providing complimentary popcorn and further surprises too,” says Movies Midlands editor, Mike Sales. “The path of the righteous man should lead you to Firebug where you can also buy tasty Royale with Cheese burgers and cafe robbery coffees. Garçon!”
Pulp Fiction will be screened with a live band on Wednesday 19th September at Firebug
