TT Cinema X Cultish Events: Double Jeopardy
July 24 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm£10
We’re excited to be bringing you a brand-new concept here at TT Cinema, as we team up with Cultish Events, curators and hosts of alternative cultural events in and around the capital.
A new series of themed cinematic double-bills – ‘DOUBLE JEOPARDY’ – will explore some of the most iconic cult horror, thriller and sci-fi films of all time.. two at a time. The first in the series will focus on two celebrated road-based thrillers.
‘Duel’ (1971) was the feature-length movie debut of the legendary Steven Spielberg and is often thought of as being his prototype for ‘Jaws’, using a terrifying tank truck in place of a great white shark. The plot is simple – Dennis Weaver is an average guy who becomes caught up in a high-speed game of cat-and-mouse with a truck along remote Californian roads.
‘Drive’ (2011), directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, stars Ryan Gosling as a Hollywood stunt driver who moonlights as a getaway driver in his spare time. His alternative life leads him to become embroiled in an ill-fated million-dollar heist. Held up as a modern classic, it is ultra-stylish, sadistic and exhilarating with a strong noir tradition and stellar performances from both Gosling and Carey Mulligan.
The screenings will begin with an introduction and include a short break in between to allow guests to explore our Cellar Bar’s wide-ranging drinks selection.
Tickets are £10, and include entry to both screenings and a complimentary welcome cocktail from our bar.
