Thursday 31st January
Stow Film Lounge @ Wild Card Brewery, Unit 2 Lockwood Way, Walthamstow, London E17 5RB at 7.15pm (Doors)
Stow Film Lounge is absolutely delighted to be working with the Wild Card Taprooms and Yard Sale Pizza to bring you our award-winning pop-up cinema in another exciting venue. We kick off our first horror/grotesque genre programme with this modern classic.
Combining palace intrigue with rapid-fire farce, this audacious comedy is a bitingly funny takedown of bureaucratic dysfunction performed to the hilt by a sparkling ensemble cast.
When tyrannical dictator Joseph Stalin dies in 1953, his parasitic cronies square off in a frantic power struggle to become the next Soviet leader. Among the contenders are the dweebish Georgy Malenkov, the wily Nikita Khrushchev and Lavrenti Beria — the sadistic secret police chief. As they bumble, brawl and back-stab their way to the top, the question remains — just who is running the government?
The Wild Card bar will be open as usual. We will be serving freshly made popcorn and ice-creams.
12″ Meat (Holy Pepperoni) or Veggie (Margherita) pizzas from Yard Sale Pizza can be pre-ordered and will be delivered fresh to the site for you to enjoy with the film.
