TT Cinema: Fight Club 20th Anniversary Screening
November 12 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm£15
TT Cinema continues on further into November with a special 20th anniversary screening of one of our all-time favourite flicks – David Fincher’s Fight Club.
Based on the 1996 Chuck Palahniuk novel of the same name, Edward Norton stars as a depressed young man who has found himself become a small cog in the world of big business.
One day on a business flight, he discovers Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt), a charming iconoclast who sells soap. Tyler doesn’t put much stock in the materialistic world, and he believes that one can learn a great deal through pain, misfortune, and chaos. Tyler cheerfully challenges his new friend to a fight.
Our Narrator finds that bare-knuckle brawling makes him feel more alive than he has in years, and soon the two become friends and roommates, meeting informally to fight once a week. As more men join in, the “fight club” becomes an underground sensation, even though it’s a closely guarded secret among the participants.
But as our Narrator and Tyler bond through violence, a strange situation becomes more complicated when Tyler becomes involved with Marla (Helena Bonham Carter), whom our Narrator became infatuated with when they were both crashing the support-group circuit.
Despite not picking up many awards upon its release, Fight Club‘s solid acting from its star-studded cast, amazing direction, and elaborate production design has made this thrill-ride a firm fan favourite in the years since.
Come and join us for the wildest of rides as we doff our caps to a whole 20 years of not talking about Fight Club – complimentary cocktails from our expert bar team. and snacks courtesy of the guys at PROPERCORN included in the ticket price as standard.
Tickets are £15 for one, or £20 for a pair when you use the code ‘fight’ at checkout.
