Alphabetti Theatre, Newcastle upon Tyne

No dates yet


FLIM NITE presents...

When: Thursday 25th July 2019
Show Begins: 7.30pm
Tickets: £5
Age Recommendation: 16+
Running Time: approx. 2 hours 

Smash hit experimental performance night FLIM NITE returns to Newcastle to retell classic films the only way they can: nonsensically, outlandishly and with wild-eyed enthusiasm.

FLIM NITE is a self-styled 'death to movies' night where popular films are retold through poetry, comedy and music. Each event is themed around a particular film with classics in the past including Shrek, Jurassic Park and Nightmare on Elm Street.

We will not be showing a movie. We will be making a FLIM.

Lineup to be fully annouced on the Flim Nite Facebook page

Do you want to get involved? Flim Nite has not one, not two, but THREE open mic slots available! Email Flim Nite at [email protected] for a slot. Slots are three minutes long and material must be related to this month's movie.

"With all the ramshackle pop-anarchism of Never Mind The Buzzcocks and the warmth, variety and bonhomie of a fringe arts night, FLIM NITE is going from strength to strength and is not to be missed." – NARC

“Fast becoming one of the city’s best events. If you’ve never been to FLIM NITE, GO!” – Manchester Wire

Alphabetti Theatre

Alphabetti Theatre is based in Newcastle Upon Tyne and was created by Ali Pritchard in 2012. We create, produce, and programme new, original work from emerging artists across the performing arts, championing work in Music, Theatre, Comedy and Poetry. We strive to make theatre that is relatable and accessible to all, and are constantly looking for new ways to challenge ourselves, physically, mentally and conceptually – we believe that by challenging ourselves we inevitably challenge the audience, creating engaging and original experiences.
