Change of date for our Godzilla Double Bill.

Sorry to have to do this but we’re changing the date to 13th May. This is due to Warner Bros releasing the new Godzilla a day earlier than originally announced. This kind of throws a spanner in our works as this now makes that date the only night of the year that people wont want to watch old Godzilla films.

We’re really sorry if this now means you cant attend and obviously if you need a refund on tickets already bought contact us and we’ll figure out how to do that.

Sorry again but now you can get your old school Godzilla fix before the new one comes out.

Optic Presents GODZILLA DOUBLE BILL of DESTROY ALL MONSTERS AND GODZILLA vs DESTOROYAH

*Also check out St Michaels, a new venue in Ancoats (over the road from the Northern Quarter*

To celebrate the release of the new GODZILLA movie we though we’d go back and pick a couple of our favorites to wet your appetite the night before Bryan Cranston tackles the beast. 

For your well rounded Godzilla night we’ve selected one from the Shōwa era (54 - 70’s) and another from the sometimes underrated/under seen Heisei era (late 80’s - 90s). 

For our money Destroy All Monsters is the peak of Godzillas men in rubber suits in an all. out. battle. silliness.

Whereas Godzilla vs Destoroyah does a good job of being unique and interesting while paying homage to the original 1954 film.

This new venue will be accompanied by a fully licensed bar and popcorn. 

TIckets just £5 and available here - http://www.wegottickets.com/optic

Hi, I'm a student filmmaker in my final year, studying at MMU. I was just wondering about the space you screened Suspiria in, do you have a contact for it? I was hoping to have a look at it and possibly film there. Thanks, Natalie

Asked by nataliejonesproducer

Hi,

Unfortunatly it will soon be another Kosomonaught. When were you thinking about filming? We’re going to have the keys to set up for our xmas screening but after that I believe it will look very different. 

Notes

We thought we’d celebrate this christmas season the only way we know how…. With murderous santa types, mischievous elves and evil nazi experimentation from the trashy vhs era. Join us December Friday 13th (that’s right!) in a disused office space in the NQ for some Christmas … Joy? There’ll be a bar with Christmasy booze + snacks and FUN will be had by all.

Are there still tickets available on the door for the Halloween Screening of Suspiria? They appear to be sold out on WeGotTickets. If so will they be still £5.50? Thanks

Asked by theun-bookish

They would be £5 on the door. Wegotickets take a sweet 50p for themselves which I’m not too happy about. We are currently at capacity but may have tickets on the door depending on drop outs etc.

Best bet is to get down early and try on the door.

We’re celebrating a weird area of the horror genre with our trip to china. “The Boxer’s Omen is The Holy Mountain, Altered States and Rocky all rolled into one; it’s all of ’70s gonzo kickass cinema compressed into an insane little ball, and blasted through a garishly-colored early-’80s Hong Kong filter.” ~cinefamily “ Hilariously cheesy special effects help raise Oily Maniac beyond schlock level into an entertainingly trashy camp classic. Ho Meng Hua’s standard lurid exploitation elements and over-the-top evil bad guys complete the picture. Oily Maniac is a cheesy B-grade flick that’s sure to delight fans of trashy cinema!”

Change to CYBORG lineup

Sorry to have to do this but it looks like the rights to American Cyborg have lapsed. For some reason Warner didnt want to renew the rights and now we cant pay anyone to screen it! We will now be screening HARDWARE with MANBORG so we’re still on the cyborg theme. If you’ve pre-booked and want your money back drop us a line but this screening should still be ridiculously fun!
