The good folk at GRIMM UP NORTH have scheduled a fantastic season of JOHN CARPENTER films, beginning on May 23th

So clear your diaries, and head down to The Dancehouse, Manchester to catch:

THEY LIVE - May 23th - Roddy Piper stars in this sci-fi political satire in which aliens use subliminal messages to control the working classes. Don your Ray Bahns, chew your bubblegum and kick ass!

ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK - June 5th Kurt Russell is coolness personified as Snake Plissken, forced to go to Manhatten Island – now a high security prison – to rescue the President. A fun blend of action and sci-fi set in the distant future (well, 1997... but, you know...)

BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA - June 26th Russell again, this time as gung-ho hero Jack Burton, battling a 200-year old magician, Lo Pan. If you were born ready, be there!

THE THING - July 17th - That man Russell again! In one of the greatest horror films of all time, man is the warmest place to hide. With impressive effects work which still holds up, it's a wild ride!

All the films are brilliant, and full of eminently quotable lines. Don't miss this rare chance to see them on the big screen with some like-minded folk!

Tickets are £6.50 each (plus the ubiquitous booking fees) or you can be savvy and book for all four films for a bargain £20 – saving you £6 and several booking fees! The season ticket is only available from the GRIMM UP NORTH website.

All films begin at 8pm (doors 7.30pm) at The Dancehouse, Oxford Road, Manchester.

Individual tickets will be available via Ticketline shortly.
