Cult Classics Cinema at The Dancehouse

Classic Films on The Big Screen

Published on May 21st 2013.

Cult Classics Cinema at The Dancehouse

We can think of no better way to spend an evening then watching our favourite films with a load of cinema snacks and a fully stocked bar. So thank God for The Dancehouse Theatre. They are bringing back the retro cinema experience and putting the most loved movies from history back on the big screen where they belong.

Pure cinematic indulgence for movie lovers

From The Goonies to When Harry Met Sally to Anchorman, the film buffs at the Dancehouse have carefully selected the ‘must-watch’s and the ‘I can’t believe you’ve never seen it’s’ from every Top 100 Film countdown and scheduled nights of pure cinematic indulgence for movie lovers.

The prices are pretty retro too, just £5 for the night out, almost as good as when we were teenagers (but no kissing on the back row please…) The Dancehouse had a great time picking their favourites and now it is time for you to vote for yours. They will be screening the most popular ones over the coming months. The list of options is below:

The Goonies (1985) – ‘The Goonies’ (a group of friends from “Goon Docks”) go on a treasure-hunting mission that doesn’t exactly go to plan.

When Harry Met Sally (1989) – From a time when rom coms were both romantic and comedic. Oh, and ‘that’ café scene.

The Rocky Horror Show (1975) – Music, comedy, horror and some dodgy dance routines. Dressing up is preferred, but purely optional.

Point Break (1991) – Remember when you used to swoon over Keanu Reeves? Well now you can do it again. Plus Patrick Swayze surfs and skydives. You’re welcome.

Mean Girls (2004) – Relive the glory days of Lindsay Lohan (or at least remind yourself that those days existed). An American high school bitchfest of a movie.

Grease (1978) – Those tight leather trousers on the big screen? We’ve got chills, and they’re multiplying.

Anchorman (2004) – Will Ferrell is the legend that is Ron Burgundy, bringing you the news so you don’t have to get it yourself.

Cool Runnings (1993) – A Jamaican bobsled team?! Our favourite for a night of feel-good fun with an immense soundtrack.

Reservoir Dogs (1992) – Violence, crime, profanities and upside down storytelling. Everything you love about Tarantino.

Uncle Buck (1989) – John Candy and an innocent looking Macaulay Culkin make some nostalgic cinematic magic. If you haven’t seen it since you were a kid, it’s definitely time you saw it again.

Make sure you vote to relive your favourite filmic moments, just pick from the options below. And don’t miss out on the very first retro movie night: Bonnie and Clyde on the 13 June.
