The film club that celebrates VHS and old 35mm and 16mm, and anything generally offbeat and unseen, is now seven years young. To celebrate, a completely free evening of events is planned for the 18th August in the Phoenix Cinema in North London. On the menu is " trailer trash slots both new and old, our usual quiz but with a new twist, mad shorts, weird bits and all the usual mayhem will top and tail an evening that is sure to prove as stifling as the heatwave outside."
