Do you yearn for the cinema of the 1950s? B movies, fag smoke clogging the projector beam, standing for the Queen at the end? No? Tough! It's back!
The aged (and odd) staff of the Bijou Cinema have been brought out of retirement to shine their torches and tear your tickets one more time!
If you can get past old Sprocket, the commissionaire, you'll be shown to your seat by flirty usherette, Honey Wagon (runner up of "Miss Hot Dog" 1958). Once in your seat you can relax while Ernie Glissando runs his hands over his mighty Organ and encourages you to sing along to his bouncing balls. Before the film begins there's just time to grab something cold and creamy from Gladys, the oldest usherette in the world.
So come and enjoy a night at a 50's cinema. Wear your best 1950's outfits, (prizes for the best dressed!). Watch a real 1950's B movie. Sample 3D and Smell-o-Vision! Sample the usherettes! But no snogging in the back row!!
Featuring Bride Of The Monster. Appropriate for Ages 12 and up.
Also appearing in The (Very) Big Laugh Out
