Alphabetti Theatre, Newcastle upon Tyne

Thursday, 14 Mar



When: Thursday 14th March 2019
Show Begins: 7.30pm
Tickets: £5
Age Recommendation: 16+
Running Time: approx. 1 hour 30 mins

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, music and more.

Each event is themed around a particular film with classics in the past including Shrek, Jurassic Park and Nightmare on Elm Street.

Cult hit FLIM NITE returns to Newcastle to spread its unique brand of mischief after three years of sowing highly-acclaimed chaos in Manchester.

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

"The group take a hammer to well-known films and smash them into something completely different – think a smorgasbord of musical interludes, a dab of poetry and an added bit of standup comedy. Trust us, it's unlike any other night around!" - The Skinny

FLIM NITE is supported using public funding by Arts Council England and the National Lottery through the Grants for the arts scheme.

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.
