Want free films for yourself and a guest?

Yes, that's right! Get involved with Warwick Student Cinema and you and a guest can come to as many of our standard screenings as you want for free.

What's the catch? There is a minimum commitment but it isn't much; a few reviews every term or stewarding once a fortnight, for example. Beyond that, there are plenty of opportunities if you're interested but it is really up to you.

What can I do then? Well, that's entirely up to you but we like to think there is something for everyone, be it stewarding films, training as a projectionist, helping to design our new website, or writing a film review for our booklet. Have a browse around the Get Involved section of our website, send us an email at info@filmsoc.warwick.ac.uk or just say hello to one of the front-of-house staff before or after a screening to find out more about the different roles.

Why should I do it? Persuade me! The simple answer is that we need you. The society cannot function without the volunteers who help keep everything running smoothly, so that our audience can come and see the film knowing they will have a great time.

But, what's in it for me? Aside from the free films, you will be part of a society that will develop your transferable skills and increase your attractiveness to employers. And that's not forgetting our regular socials.

So, what do I do next? Your best bet is to send an email to info@filmsoc.warwick.ac.uk or just say hello before a screening and we'll tell you how best to proceed from there.

Spring programme confirmed (old)

It is my pleasure to announce the confirmation of the film programme for the spring term. Following on from last year's Oscar Tuesdays, the same day of the week will be devoted to winners of the Academy Award for Best Picture, culminating with The Godfather and The Godfather: Part II, considered by many to be the pinnacle of American cinema. The term will not be short of this year's awards season and festival favourites either, from Amour to Argo and The Master to Silver Linings Playbook.

Before the UK release of Hitchcock on 8th February, Week 4 brings an Alfred Hitchcock mini-season, with screenings of Rebecca (Best Picture 1940), Rear Window (sponsored by KPMG) and Psycho (at midnight).

The AllNighter will feature two Sam Mendes films: the sensational Skyfall and American Beauty, itself a Best Picture winner. The lineup is completed by Seven Psychopaths (from In Bruges director Martin McDonagh), ParaNorman (from the makers of Coraline) and the first Bond, Sean Connery, in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. These, and a mystery film!

The programme ends in style with two highly anticipated films of much-loved novels. Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey gets three screenings, and Ang Lee's Life of Pi is the final Sunday double screening.

Warwick Student Cinema presents Autumn Term 2012 (old)

Whether you’re interested in getting more involved with the society by joining our fabulous crew or just in it for the multitude of films at student prices, Warwick Student Cinema has a great line-up that caters for every palate: blockbusters, comedies, classics, dramas, horrors, rom-coms and foreign films – our Autumn term schedule has it all.

We’ve got a lot of interesting events planned this term. We’re holding our first movie pub quiz on Saturday of week 2 – so come to the Mighty Duck if you’ve no other plans. Our flagship event The AllNighter (six films in one night) will be headlined on Friday of week 7 by the acclaimed comedy Ted and Pixar’s latest, Brave – see our publicity for further details.

Christopher Nolan's Batman Season kicks off on Tuesday Week 4 with our ever-popular Sponsored Screening; we’ll be putting on a free showing of Batman Begins with complimentary food and drink provided for all attendees, courtesy of KPMG. The season will end on a high note with four screenings of the majestic The Dark Knight Rises across the Friday and Sunday.

We’ve got four Midnight Frights, horror films starting at midnight on Saturday evening, and three free films for members (Safe, Tales of the Night and Arthur Christmas) spread around the term.

The connoisseurs of cinema amongst you may be intrigued by our Saturday week 8 showing of Terminator 2: Judgement Day in 70mm. We are indeed one of the few cinemas in the country that still regularly show 70mm film.

So find us at the Freshers or Societies Fairs and grab a poster, then come along to enjoy one of the many films with us this term. Don’t forget that our first two films of term (21 Jump Street and Battleship) are free to attend!

We wish you the best in your upcoming year.

Getting Involved Meeting and Free Pizza (old)

Are you interested in getting involved with Warwick Student Cinema? Want to know about the different opportunities that we offer? Want to know about the benefits and commitments of joining our crew? Want to be rewarded for your curiosity with free pizza?

At the start of the autumn term the cinema holds a "Getting Involved" meeting where all of your questions, and more, will be answered. The team heads of Projection, Front of House, Publicity, Marketing and IT will give details about what their teams do, and what you could do for them. Most of the Exec and other crew members will be on hand to answer any questions that you have, as well as giving you tours of the projection suite. And yes, there will be free pizza for all attendees!

The meeting will be held on Saturday 6th October (week 1) from 4:00 pm in L3. It will last only about an hour so we hope it won’t intrude on any of your evening plans.

So come along, bring your friends, hear about the society, get a tour of our projection suite and then grab some complimentary pizza on your way out.

Until then feel free to visit our Getting Involved page for more details, email the exec (info@filmsoc.warwick.ac.uk) if you have any burning questions, or visit our stall at both the Freshers and Societies Fairs in week 1.

Owing to its limited release in cinemas, we have had to cancel Iron Sky (formerly scheduled for Saturday 23 June in Week 9). We had hoped that the distributor, Revolver Entertainment, would make the film available for the autumn term, but they have no intention to do so. We apologise to all who were planning to see the film at WSC.

Tintin TitleTintin pic

The location of the mysterious treasure of The Unicorn was thought to have sunken with the ship itself. But when the plucky reporter Tintin (Bell) purchases a model of the ship at a market, he and his faithful companion Snowy are soon swept up in a race against time to locate the treasure before the sinister Mr Sakharine (Craig). Accompanied by Captain Haddock (Serkis), the helpful, but slightly drunken sea captain, the heroes attempt to collect all of the clues, and avoid the murderous clutches of Sakharine in an action-packed animated screen spectacular with all the heart of Hergé’s original creation.

Boasting the beautiful artistry of Peter Jackson’s famous Weta workshop, Tintin is a film filled with fantastic detailed landscapes and an utterly immersive setting. Not only is this film visually stunning, but it also highly entertaining, no surprise given the collective talents of both Pegg, who plays Inspector Thompson, and Serkis, who does a hysterical job of bringing the character Captain Haddock to the screens in all his drunken glory. With all the appeal of excellent special effects and an extremely talented cast, Spielberg’s direction is the icing on the cake; the script has exactly the right amount of laughs, action and heart-warming moments to convey the well-loved characters believably and still be considered a ‘must-see’ film. If dramatic mysteries with a dash of humour are for you, then go and see Tintin!

Ghostbusters titleGhostbusters pic

When a quartet of parapsychology professors run out of funding for their department, they set up shop in an old firehouse as a ghost extermination business known as ‘The Ghostbusters’. With the help of their very own ghost bustin’ proton guns, they set out to rid New York of ghostly menaces, but it is not long before they face the ultimate challenge; a Sumerian god known as Gozer the Gozerian.

The most expensive comedy of its time, Ghostbusters raked in money hand over fist, and it’s not hard to see why. The combination of sci-fi and comedy has become somewhat of a tradition, with films such as Galaxyquest, Spaceballs and Paul following in its wake. One particular reason behind the success of this cult classic is the living-legend Bill Murray, who appeared as himself in the recent ZomCom Zombieland, and after Ghostbusters went on to star in films such as Osmosis Jones, Groundhog Day and Space Jam. Ghostbusters itself is a genre defining film which took audiences by storm, with a side-splitting script and great special effects, most notably the Stay Puft man, not to mention a ridiculously catchy theme song. This cult classic remains fresh and funny to date, and is a highlight of cinema – Bustin’ makes you feel good, after all!

Aimée Crickmore


Three Musketeers titleThree Musketeers pic

In the 17th Century, after an outrageous betrayal by the Lady de Winter (Milla Jojovich), the three French Musketeers, Athos, Porthos and Aramis, have all but lost faith in everything. That is, until they meet the young and hot-headed D’Artagnan, who has always seen them as his idols. Once more rising to their status, they set off to undo a major conspiracy against the king of France, orchestrated by Milady, the Cardinal Richelieu (Christoph Waltz), and the infamous Duke of Buckingham (Orlando Bloom).

Though inspired by Dumas’ masterpiece, director Paul Anderson openly chooses to toss historical accuracy out of the window, and does so with gusto. The results are a surreal and enticing fresco of the 17th century, where the legends of the time are dragged into a new reality with whiz-bang action sequences and gigantic flying war ships. A classic adventure in shiny new clothes, The Three Musketeers is a pleasant surprise.

Charles Noirot

The Mystery Film picThe Mystery title

Shrouded in the clouds of a smoke machine and locked deep in the WSC vaults, not to be unveiled until the time is just right (halfway through the night, naturally!), The Mystery Film is the biggest secret on campus.

Will it be action? Comedy? Erotic thriller?! There’s only one way to find out!

Click here to see The Mystery Films of AllNighters past!


Puss In Boots PicturePuss In Boots Title

It was back in 2004 when we were first introduced to Dreamworks’ swashbuckling, Spanish-talking, sword-wielding feline. Now, seven years later, Puss in Boots is finally the protagonist of his own film. Dreamworks once again show their individuality by avoiding becoming Pixar-copycats, and ploughing ahead with their own unashamedly entertaining and bombastic style. Chris Miller returns to the helm as director (Shrek, Shrek 2 and Shrek the Third), with a lot more vigour than he left it, and the Shrek universe is once again beautifully rendered and instantly recognisable. Highly energetic, beautifully animated and wonderfully endearing, Puss in Boots is a return to form for the franchise that very few will be able to resist.

Clarissa Gillingham


Airplane! titleAirplane! pic

What can only be described as the Magnum Opus of the alliance of directors that brought us Hot Shots, the Naked Gun series and several of the Scary Movies and the late great Leslie Nielsen, Airplane! is known as one of the pre-eminently quoted comedy movies of all time. Filled with endless gags both subtle and brash, from physically realised metaphors to rubber inflatable co-pilots, this film holds nothing back in the laugh out loud comedy department.

Airplane! is one of those ageless comedies that continues to stand the test of time. So hilarious this film will literally make you want to experience a plane crash first hand! Surely you can’t be serious? ‘I am serious and stop calling me Shirley’.

'The Lion King' replaces 'We Need to Talk About Kevin' (old)

Unfortunately we've not received a copy of We Need to Talk About Kevin to project tonight. We tried our best (a copy was despatched to us at 11am on special same-day courier!) but it seems to have got lost somewhere...!

On a brighter note, we are going to show The Lion King again tonight to replace it - if you missed out on the great atmosphere yesterday, here's another opportunity to enjoy it (or come again)! Tickets from 7:30pm.

Hey filmfans,

It is approaching the time when the conglomeration of our film taste is expressed in terms of a summer schedule.

Next Wednesday, 1st February, the programming meeting to decide this schedule will commence at 5:00pm in L3 (on the Science Concourse). This will go on until we finish, or midnight, whichever comes first.

I'll bring a draft to remind everyone on what has been suggested so far, but feel free to suggest more at the time.

This is open to all members, so if you would like to contribute, please come along!

Thank you, and I hope to see you there,

Come along, tickets are first come, first served, and there'll be a KPMG representative there on the night too if you have any careers questions.

With its blend of gravity-defying fights and quiet conversations in conservative ancient China, it's a wholly different world than that you see in your usual cinematic experience. ”

It's the day after the ALLNIGHTER: Autumn 2011, and I've finally got around to being productive!

We had a great evening, with a busy auditorium, excited crew, Christmas decorations up already in the office(!), and prizes to give away!

After some Cowboys battled a bunch of Aliens, the audience participation picked up! Marty McFly went Back to the Future, with a cheer and round of applause at the history changing punch, plus more applause at the end.

The Quiz educated the audience, who apparently didn't know how much a High School Musical sofabed cost - nor how much all of the night's films grossed in cinemas (before knowing what the Mystery was)! Rango followed before...

The Mystery Film  The Mystery Film

The Princess Bride was screened as our Mystery Film - inconceivable!

One minute he's eating cereal at the table, but the next he's standing up grasping a kitchen knife, which he cannot remember picking up. He has some messed up friends as well; Tommy, who's prone to violence; Kayley, who gets abused; and Lenny, who's depressed.

At the age of 20 Evan begins to reread his childhood diaries and finds a way to access his repressed memories, but he cannot believe what they contain. Asking Kayleigh about what happened stirs up her own issues and causes her suicide. In Evan's mourning he accesses more of his memories and discovers that when he remembers them - he actually relives them, and so has the power to change them. By altering his past and that of his friends, Evan tries to create a better future, but every action has a reaction, not always the one he intended.

The Butterfly Effect is an intriguing thriller littered with touching moments of friendship and self-sacrifice. Interest is easily held throughout the film by the ever-changing situation of the protagonists. Evan's blackouts provide moments of sudden drama, as he often wakes up to dangerous situations without knowing how he got there.

This film has its unpleasant moments; it deals with some horrific events from the childhoods of the protagonists. Some moments are quite shocking, not because they are graphic but because they are implicitly upsetting, for example when Evan's dog is burnt.

If you have ever watched Punk'd you might be put off by the thought of Ashton Kutcher as a serious actor, but there's no need as his acting is surprisingly good. Amy Smart also gives a believable and emotive performance, as do all the actors in general.

This film is a well-paced original story, told cleverly and achieves a level of drama and emotion not seen in many thrillers. It will shock you, amuse you and most of all make you think. The Butterfly Effect is well worth seeing.

The AllNighter - Autumn 2011! (old)

FRIDAY WEEK 7 (18th Nov) - doors open 7.30pm

The AllNighter is WSC's flagship event, and one not to be missed. It's a night of great films and interval entertainment (including a film quiz and raffle with the chance to win hundreds of pounds' worth of prizes), creating an atmosphere second to none! Tickets will be on sale before films during Week 7 and at the event itself. Tickets sold on the door will be on a first come, first served basis so buy early to avoid disappointment!

Films

Cowboys and Aliens TitleCowboys and Aliens pic

From the director of Iron Man comes this genre-movie-mash-up as the wild west is invaded by an army of destructive extra-terrestrials. Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford give the film a heavy dose of star power, whilst up-and-comer Olivia Wilde is ideally suited to her role as the mysterious traveller, offering more than just eye candy.

The film also boasts some spectacular special effects and successfully avoids crossing over into gimmicky territory, which is no easy feat given the bizarre premise. Fun, guiltless and full of high-octane action, Cowboys and Aliens is a sci-fi tinged western romp that answers the question that (obviously) everyone has asked at some point in their lives – who’d win in a fight between cowboys and aliens?

Luke Woellhaf



Back to the Future titleBack to the Future pic

Michael J Fox time-travelling in a souped-up Delorean? You can’t go wrong with this 80s cult classic that sees teenager Marty McFly (Fox) transported back to 1955 by eccentric scientist ‘Doc’ Emmett Brown (Christopher Lloyd). There, he gets to answer the question we’ve all pondered at some point – what were our parents really like as teenagers?

But things get complicated when Marty’s mum falls for him and he has to find a way to rekindle his parents’ high-school romance, or else be erased from time altogether. And as if this isn’t enough to deal with, the Delorean’s out of gas. Part sci-fi, part screwball comedy, this is not only a brilliant take on the classic time-travel problem of how to avoid altering the future, it’s got real heart too. Fast-paced and note-perfect, this is a film which stands the test of time.

Ellen Buckerfield


Rango titleRango pic

Littered with clever wit and western spoofery, Rango is a must-see. While much of the humour flies over the heads of children, this truly is a cartoon for adults, featuring hilarious references to other westerns, and even incorporating some slapstick. Sheltered house-pet Rango finds himself in gritty desert town, Dirt, sticking out like a sore thumb. An identity crisis of sorts, Rango recreates himself as Dirt’s last hope - the sheriff that can hopefully solve their drought problem. Storyline aside, the animation is fantastic. The textures of the desert animals and the colours of the beautiful western backdrop are just perfect for this wannabe Western animation.

Louise Formby

The Mystery Film picThe Mystery title

Shrouded in the clouds of a smoke machine and locked deep in the WSC vaults, not to be unveiled until the time is just right (halfway through the night, naturally!), The Mystery Film is the biggest secret on campus.

Will it be action? Comedy? Erotic thriller?! There’s only one way to find out!

Click here to see The Mystery Films of AllNighters past!


Mean Girls PictureMean Girls Title

Written by Saturday Night Live’s very own Tina Fey, Mean Girls sees ‘girl-world’ newbie, Cady (Lohan), jump from her home-schooled sheltered life in Africa to the political madness of high school. She quickly learns that the phrase ‘survival of the fittest’ is not limited to the animal kingdom, as she is thrown into an intense battle of the cliques. First she finds grunger lesbian Janis and gay best friend Damien, who guide her through the Cool Asians, Jocks, ‘Burnouts’ and of course ‘The Plastics’.

Regina (McAdams) and her fellow ‘hotties’ are top of the social food chain, and are hated by Cady’s new-found friends. When Cady is invited to lunch with the Plastics, Janis creates a vengeful plot against them, using the new girl as her ultimate weapon. Joining ‘girl-world’ seems like a good idea, but Cady soon finds herself in the midst of the bitchiest scheme ever to hit North Shore High School. Throwing in romance and family problems along the way, Tina Fey creates a sarcastic and hilarious adventure that will leave you quoting your favourite lines for years to come.

Louise Formby


The Prestige titleThe Prestige pic

The director of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and Inception presents the feud of magicians Alfred Borden (Bale) and Robert Angier (Jackman) in Victorian London, as the former stands accused of murdering the latter. The beginning of their rivalry is retraced, exploring the escalation from sabotaging each other’s acts, to death as the pair become increasingly obsessed with outdoing each other and developing the perfect trick, with mentor and trick designer Cutter (Caine) and glamorous assistant Olivia (Johansson) caught in the middle.

The Prestige contains everything we have come to expect from a Christopher Nolan film, with engrossing characters (thanks to superb performances by Bale, Jackman and Caine) and countless plot twists and turns that serve to conjure up a dark and absorbing thriller.

Welcome to WSC: Autumn 2011 (old)

“Prepare for the return of awesomeness”

Okay, so I may have stolen that quote from Kung Fu Panda 2 (in Week 8), but nevertheless, Warwick Student Cinema is going to have another busy and exciting year! Freshers - its your chance to get to know the biggest society on campus!


Preview our Autumn schedule!

After a lot of planning, WSC had Digital Cinema facilities installed over the summer! We’ll continue showing as many films as we can in authentic 35mm print, but as distributors move over to digital, we’ll be keeping up with the times.

WSC Events

Whilst ticket prices have changed for the first time in 8 years (mainly due to the VAT rise and increasing costs), we've introduced some exclusive new members only benefits! Three films this term are completely Free for WSC Members - Attack the Block, Of Gods and Men and The Beaver. Plus, there's an additional £1 discount for members on Foreign Thursdays.

WSC Events

If you'd like to Get Involved in running a professional quality cinema, we’d love to hear from you. Our crew all get free tickets to standard screenings for themselves and a guest, plus something to write on their CV – in fields ranging from Front of House and Projection to Publicity and IT. You can meet us at our stalls at Orientation, Freshers and Societies Fairs, or chat to the Duty Manager at any of our screenings. Our Getting Involved meeting is on Saturday Week 1 at 4pm in L3 (the theatre we use) and has free pizza!

Why not try our award winning cinema? Sucker Punch and Bad Teacher are completely free on Sunday of coming up weekend and Monday Week 1, plus our Autumn screenings of Pulp Fiction are always popular!

See you at a screening soon,

Edward McCutcheon - President

Digital Cinema (old)

After three days of hard work, and months of planning: our new Digital Cinema Projector is installed, just in time for the 35th anniversary of us showing 35mm film! With a digital cinema projector, we can show a much wider range of films including classics only being re-released digitally such as Back to the Future. Fear not film fans! We shall continue to show both 35mm and 70mm film, being one of the few cinemas left in the country that still regularly shows 70mm films.

I'd like to thank everyone who's helped out during these few days. Our new projector

5-Film Pass (non-member) £14.00

Becoming a member allows you to see your first film for free, as well as giving you a plethora of advantages such as being able to get involved behind the scenes, voting in our elections, cheaper tickets, and (new for this year!) a number of FREE films each term - see below for details!

A "non-member" is a student or staff-member of the University of Warwick who is not a member of the Warwick Student Cinema.

FREE members' screenings!

New for this academic year, we will be putting on a number of showings each term which will be completely free for our members - non-members may still attend at normal prices, but with an offer like this, why wouldn't you be a member?!

The films will be specially-chosen by the Exec, who will aim to choose films that members might ordinarily not think to see, but which will broaden the cinematic knowledge of our members.

The free-for-members screenings in term 1 will be:
Attack the Block - Monday, Week 3
Of Gods and Men - Thursday, Week 6
The Beaver - Monday, Week 8

Posters for Attack The Block, Of Gods And Men, and The Beaver Attack the Block Of Gods and Men The Beaver

We look forward to seeing you after the Summer holidays!

Outdoor Screening Success! (old)

Thanks to everyone who braved the weather to turn up to last night's Outdoor Screening of UP! Despite afternoon showers, we had relatively clear skies by 10:30pm and the movie was enjoyed by a large audience without any hitches.

While it's difficult to judge exact numbers, a quick head count suggested that 600-700 of you came to enjoy the film - which makes this year's event even bigger than last year's!

A huge thank-you to our Technical and Projection Teams, who professionally ensured that all of our equipment was set up and caused the whole event to run smoothly. Thanks also to our front-of-house staff who decorated the whole of campus with balloons and made sure the film was as enjoyable as possible for our dedicated audience. Some of our staff were on the field as early as 9am to begin preparations! And thanks, of course, to our ever-dedicated Exec for handling the management end of everything!

The biggest thanks of all must go to Andy and Tim D, who were driving around the country days before the event picking up everything we needed, getting very little sleep in the process!

And of course, we can't forget our sponsors, KPMG, who funded the event. We wouldn't be able to put on free events like these without their help!

If you want to get involved in the Outdoor Screening next year, or any of our other events and regular screenings, then come and see us at the Freshers' Fair in October, or approach any of our staff who will be happy to introduce you to the society.

Warwick Student Cinema is proud to announce that there will not only be one, but TWO Lord of the Rings AllNighters! The first will be on Friday the 6th of May (Week 2 of Term 3), and the second will be the day after on Saturday night. Both events will start at 7:30pm, and go through to the small hours of the following day!

As always, there will be a quiz with prizes. Not all of the questions will be about Lord of the Rings so you don't have to be a massive fan to win!

Also, for the first time at an AllNighter, we will be selling snacks and drinks at low prices between films!

For those of you who haven't been to an AllNighter before, they are really something special; watching this acclaimed film series, back to back, in one night, with three-hundred other like-minded film fans is not something to be missed.

One does not simply walk into the AllNighter... tickets will be on sale throughout week two at all our showings, and at our stall in the SU atrium on Thursday and Friday. Members tickets are £7, non-members £10, and external (non-Warwick) guests are £12.

Did You Go AllNight? - Spring 2011 (old)

I'm writing this just as the final projectionist for the night is starting up Trainspotting, at the WSC Spring AllNighter!

We've had a fabulous evening, and there's still a film to go! Whilst we didn't quite sell out, the auditorium was pretty full, excited and ready for Tron: Legacy.

The Films Officer's quiz (with heavy suggestions of Legally Blonde as the Mystery Film) was followed by Despicable Me, and then the prizes to our crew who have qualified. It is never too late to get involved - check out our team pages on this site!

The Mystery Film

Fergus then handed over Presidency to myself, and the whole Exec changed over. RED, the Quiz Answers and Raffle followed, before the Mystery Film was revealed to be... Team America!

It was also our pleasure to première the WSC Term 3 Video!

We hope to see you at a show soon.

KPMG Event: Good Bye Lenin! (old)

This Thursday, WSC, in association with KPMG, bring you a FREE SCREENING of Good Bye Lenin!! The event starts at 7:30pm, with the film screening, a brief talk from KPMG, film QUIZ with PRIZES and then FREE FOOD AND DRINKS. We've got a variety of pizzas, wine, lager, bitter, cider and juice, so something for every student's palette!

What's more, entry gives you free entry into the quiz, with prizes including £40 worth of IMAX vouchers, a variety of DVD box sets and free tickets to our screenings, including the upcoming, the ever popular, AllNighter!

“Good Bye Lenin! paints a rich and evocative portrait of a fascinating period of history, capturing the clash of different ideologies and the radical changes which transformed Eastern Europe. Rather than utterly dismissing the old regime, the characters convey a certain nostalgia for the communist ideology and the impact that it had on shaping German culture.”
from WSC's Good Bye Lenin! Review

We look forward to seeing you there!

Summer term schedule! (old)

Spring 2011

Heya film fans,

Following the Programming Meeting yesterday, we now have our Summer Schedule online for you! You'll notice that it is stripped down as summer terms at WSC are quieter due to the exam periods, but we're sure you'll still find some films out of this great selection that you'd like to come and see on the big screen!

Please note that the schedule is still subject to booking availability, but it should be fine. Also, before I get bombarded with emails, the Lord of the Rings AllNighter features the standard cinematic versions and not the extended editions - we would have loved to screen the full cuts, but unfortunately they are not available on 35mm... sorry!

Enjoy!

Social to Nandos & 'The Mechanic'! (old)

The Mechanic

Howdi all!

For week 4, Sophie's getting a week off from organising socials and Front of House is laying one on for you instead - we're nice like that :-)

On the menu this term - Nandos from about 7.30pm - don't worry about how to get there - we'll be catching the bus as a group from the Arts Centre at 7pm!

Our food will be followed by a trip just down the road to the Odeon, to see the 9.30pm screening of the one and only Jason Statham in the brand new (and at time of typing - unreleased) action thriller The Mechanic. For more information on the film itself, check out its website, or the relevant IMDb page.

Whether you're a steward or reviewer, a projectionist in the making, or simply a film enthusiast, you're more than welcome to attend. We'll also ensure to get everyone back to campus safe and sound, catching the last bus back, with several of the exec on board to lead the way. Simply sign-up on the socials page by midday on Monday and look forward to getting to know peeps in the society that little bit better!

AGM and elections! (old)

Elections

Hello all!

It's election time at WSC! So if you feel like meeting lots of wonderful people, influencing how the biggest society on campus is run and gaining valuable experience that will look amazing on your CV, then read on.

The Exec will consist of ten roles, listed below, including the new position of marketing officer - you can read a bit more about them here. The Marketing Officer is chiefly responsible for electronic publicity and advertising of WSC. Please also not that the position of Secretary has now changed to 'Vice President', although the responsibilities are virtually the same. If you are considering running, it's also worth chatting to the current officeholder to get some more information about the day-to-day tasks.

The exec positions up for election are:

  • President
  • Vice President
  • Treasurer
  • Films Officer
  • Chief Projectionist
  • Chief Duty Manager
  • Publicity Officer
  • Technical Officer
  • IT Officer
  • Marketing Officer

For most of the roles there is no experience necessary, except for Chief Duty Manager, Chief Projectionist and Tech Officer, for which you need to be a qualified Duty Manager or projectionist respectively. It is possible to run for more than one position, but you will need to state a preference as to which one would be your first choice and have a separate nominator for each position.

The election will take place in the Annual General Meeting on Monday 7th February (Week 5), which starts at 7.30pm in L3.

I (Sophie Carroll) will be the returning officer for the election, so all nominations must be sent to me at secretary@filmsoc.warwick.ac.uk by 6pm Wednesday 2nd February (Week 4). Your email must contain:

  • your name,
  • the position you want to run for,
  • university number,
  • name and university number of a nominator.

Nominations are now open. Anyone wishing to run must be a full member of the society. The nominator must also be a full member of Warwick Student Cinema and may only nominate one candidate. Current Exec members may nominate a candidate, providing they are not running for any position themselves. Similarly, those running for election may not nominate others. Nominators will be contacted to confirm nominations.

Voting will be by the single transferable vote method. All candidates will have 5 minutes in which they can make a short speech and questions can be taken.

Any queries, please contact me on secretary@filmsoc.warwick.ac.uk.

Hope to hear from you soon,

Sophie Carroll

Merry ChristmasMerry Christmas

Autumn Term is over so there's really only one last thing to do and that is to wish everyone a Merry Christmas from Warwick Student Cinema!

It's been a great term for WSC, starting with yet more success at the BFFS awards then a fantastic intake of people wanting to get involved (by the way, it's never too late of you're still interested!), a huge sellout to the AllNighter and finally a double sell-out at Inception.

The Spring Schedule holds great promise, with another line-up of quality films including our 'Century of Cinema', with the likes of Casablanca, Raging Bull and the legendary Singin' in the Rain. We'll also be presenting some great events for you, including the KPMG Sponsored Event and, of course, the AllNighter, headlined this time by CGI extravaganza Tron Legacy.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Did YOU go AllNight? (old)

WSC's flagship event, the AllNighter, took place tonight - with a completely full house, sold out before 7pm!

A great time was had by all, watching Toy Story 3, Kick Ass, The Other Guys, The Mystery Film, South Park & The Truman Show. Interval entertainment included a raffle (top prize a Nintendo DSi, second prize a digital camera), Warwick TV Short film, Quiz, and even more amazing shorts!

Teasing continued over the identity of the Mystery Film right up until it started. We are constantly asked who knows what the mystery is - only the Films Officer who chose it and the Treasurer who paid for it!

Mystery Film

The Quiz's 'What is the Mystery Film?' question generated laughs, particularly when a fake IT blunder suggested it was 'The Sound of Music'! A varied and interesting Pre-Mystery reel, and our usual film-esque sound trailer built up the suspense until... The Breakfast Club came on screen!

Our thanks for coming, we hope you enjoyed it, and see you at the Spring Term AllNighter!

INCEPTION

We are pleased to announce that, due to popular demand (both our scheduled screenings sold out!), INCEPTION will return to WSC's big screen TONIGHT at both 7:30 and 10:30pm!

“Christopher Nolan takes his time over his projects, though when he delivers, he delivers big. Memento, The Prestige and the Batman reboot: not a bad career, let alone the beginnings of one. Inception continues his series of successes, realising a project he'd pondered for over a decade. In DiCaprio he has another top lead actor, ably backed by a stellar cast and a mind-bending plot that will drive you to reconsider the fabric of the world we live in.”

In the meantime, why not peruse our Autumn Term Schedule (Sunday and Tuesday's screenings in Week 1 will be free) or see how you can Get Involved next academic year and make every regular screening free for you and a guest?

Have a fantastic Summer Break!

Outdoor Screening of WALL-E! (old)

Outdoor screening Twilight

Hello all!

WSC are proud to present to you our largest event of the year, the Outdoor Screening! This year we will be bringing you the much-loved Pixar flick
WALL-E
Yes, you'll be able to watch the adorable automaton's adventures on the big screen on a lovely summer evening.
What a fantastic way to end the year with WSC.

The Outdoor Screening of WALL-E is on Wednesday 30th June at 10:00pm on Tocil Field. And, best of all, it's completely free thanks to the support of our sponsors KPMG. So just stroll up with a rug and some munchies, and bask in the splendors of outdoor cinema...

Tonight's screening of The Road CANCELLED (old)

Road

Hi all,

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but unfortunately we are unable to bring you The Road tonight as promised. There was a terrible mix up with the distributors and the delivery company that is completely out of our hands.

Sincere apologies to all those who were looking forward to this evening's film, but I'm afraid sometimes this is just the way it goes...

Hopefully you can find something else on this term's schedule to satisfy your cinema needs... Perhaps tomorrow's equally apocalyptic The Book of Eli will do the trick!

Autumn term suggestions (old)

Autumn 2010

Hello all!

Although we've only just rounded off the end of the spring term, it's already time to start looking towards the future. Quite far in the future in this case! Yes, we're already taking suggestions for what films you'd like to see on the schedule for the autumn term 2010.

Many of you may remark on how you wish WSC would show your favourite film, or that you'd like us to show more foreign films. Well, now this is your chance to vote for what you'd like to see at WSC at the start of the next academic year. With the whole summer ahead of us, there's likely to be a wealth of great new films for us to show - for some ideas of what's coming soon, check out IMDb.

Vote for films at our suggestions page which will be open until the 11th May, offer up your thoughts and ideas at our Film Suggestions Forums and watch this space for details of the Programming Meeting early next term to determine the final schedule!

Chief Projectionist Applications Open! (old)

Unfortunately, an irregularity has been found in the election process of our new Chief Projectionist.

Therefore, applications for the position of Chief Projectionist are now open.

All nominations must be sent to the returning officer (Sophie Carroll) at secretary@filmsoc.warwick.ac.uk by 6pm Monday 8th March (Week 9). Your email must contain:

  • your name,
  • university number,
  • name and university number of a nominator.

Nominations are now open. You MUST be a qualified projectionist to apply. Anyone wishing to run must be a full member of the society. The nominator must also be a full member of Warwick Student Cinema and may only nominate one candidate. Current Exec members may NOT nominate a candidate. Nominators will be contacted to confirm nominations.

Blade Twilight

Hi film fangs!
Bad news for some, good news for others:

Due to a distribution mix-up, we are no longer able to bring you Blade this Thursday evening. Instead, we will be screening the first entry in The Twilight Saga, Twilight, in preparation for our screening of its sequel New Moon on Friday.

Apologies to those who were looking forward to the ass-kicking Blade; perhaps you can find solace in seeing a different side to vampires in Twilight..! And for all you Twi-Hards out there, what better way is there to set yourself up for New Moon than sinking your teeth into the original one more time?!

Did you go AllNight? (old)

Serenity

With an absolute corker of a line-up, featuring Up and Anchorman among other cinematic greats, it's no surprise that the show sold out to a very satisfied audience - making for a very .. 'cosy' night in L3!

The event also featured a rather dramatic WSC Exec handover, involving the assassination of our former President, Mat Gardner; may he rest in peace. And let us welcome in the unforgiving regime of Fergus Cooper and his minions! As if that weren't enough, I was glad to stump many of you with my fiendish film quiz, and I hope everyone enjoyed the film shorts from Warwick Shootout and TEDx Warwick.

Of course, it wouldn't be a WSC AllNighter without the anticipation and revelation of the Mystery Film! This time a real crowd-pleaser: sci-fi/western Serenity (pictured).

Well done if you lasted to hear Rage Against the Machine ask you to 'Wake Up' as The Matrix drew to a close around 9:15am. Congrats again to all our prize-winners!

Spring Term AllNighter 2010

FRIDAY WEEK 7 (26th Feb) - doors open 7.30pm

The AllNighter is WSC's flagship event, and one not to be missed. It's a night of great films and interval entertainment (including a film quiz and raffle with the chance to win hundreds of pounds' worth of prizes), creating an atmosphere second to none! Tickets will be on sale before films during Week 7 and at the event itself. Tickets sold on the door will be on a first come, first served basis so buy early to avoid disappointment!

Films

Up titleUp pic

Carl and Ellie form an adventure club in an abandoned house, and Ellie tells Carl about her ambition to move their clubhouse to the top of Paradise Falls in South America. Now in his old age, Carl fends off the rise of skyscrapers on his doorstep and, to the amazement of all, unleashes thousands of balloons attached to his and Ellie’s house, which drifts away into the sky, ready for adventure. The first section of Up is more moving than a lot of films ever achieve. If you liked WALL-E then you can expect even more from Up.



The Big Lebowski titleThe Big Lebowski pic Our hero is Jeffrey Lebowski, otherwise known as The Dude. He’s a lazy guy who enjoys bowling, drinking White Russians and the occasional acid flashback until a gang mistake him for a different Jeffrey Lebowski (small world indeed), demand money from him and ruin his rug. All he wants is compensation for this rug, but instead he is plunged into a world of deceit, intrigue, blackmail and violence, providing the basis for some of the finest comedy moments in cinematic history. This is probably the Coen brother’s funniest film, containing countless lines that you’ll be quoting for hours on end.


Zombieland titleZombieland pic Most of mankind has succumbed to a virus that turns people into zombies. We follow the life of one of the survivors, Columbus, a student trying to get back home. On his hilarious journey he encounters Tallahassee, a man out to kill as many zombies as he can and find the world’s last Twinkie, and the cunning sisters Wichita and Little Rock. Together they must face this apocalyptic world and find a place that they can live without fear of being eaten. Zombieland goes highly recommended for anyone looking for a fresh and comical look at the zombie genre.


The Mystery Film picThe Mystery title

Shrouded in the clouds of a smoke machine and locked deep in the WSC vaults, not to be unveiled until the time is just right (halfway through the night, naturally!), The Mystery Film is the biggest secret on campus.

Will it be action? Comedy? Erotic thriller?! There’s only one way to find out!


Anchorman titleAnchorman pic News anchorman Ron Burgundy’s homely reporting, bushy moustache, and eponymous blazer have won the hearts of San Diego. But all is thrown into disarray when his station adds a lady to the line-up. Unsure whether to romance the new recruit or sully her efforts with chauvinistic chides, only one thing is for sure: she has compromised the integrity of Ron’s reporting, which is bad news indeed. Broadcasting a wealth of quotable dialogue and witty slapstick, Anchorman is considered a cult classic of contemporary comedy. Tune in, and stay classy!


Matrix titleMatrix pic By day Thomas Anderson works for a large software firm, but by night he hacks into computers under the alias ‘Neo’. Cryptic messages appear on his computer screen that lead him to a meeting with a group of people led by Morpheus (Fishburne) who awaken Neo into the ‘real’ world, a dystopian nightmare where people are used as energy sources for a race of intelligent machines. It’s hard now to remember what things were like before the Matrix hit our screens. It needs to be appreciated on the big screen, and if you missed it the first time around now is your chance!

Clothing - Old and New! (old)

Finally, after much anticipation (and apologies for the delay, turns out there was a problem with one of the items, but it's all good) the clothing has arrived :D.

So, from Monday onwards, you are welcome to pick up the clothing at any of our screenings, just ask a steward or a DM. For payment, you can either pay by cash, or by cheque. All cheques must be made payable to the Student Union, not WSC.

AND, as soon as this one arrives, I'm going to chuck out there another clothing order woop woop! This time though, it is going to be restricted to regular items (polos, hoodies, zip hoodies, etc.) and no special requests. Stuff like names/quotes on the clothing is still cool though. This time, courtesy of some awesome work from IT, there is an online form you can fill in. If that's too far ahead for you, regular emails to me with your orders are still welcome. Just email the treasurer address. Here's the link for the online form -

    Hello all!

    It's election time at WSC! So if you feel like meeting lots of wonderful people, influencing how the biggest society on campus is run and gaining valuable experience that will look amazing on your CV, then read on.

    The Exec consists of nine roles - you can read a bit more about them here. If you are considering running, it's also worth chatting to the current officeholder to get some more information about the day-to-day tasks.

    For most of the roles there is no experience necessary, except for Chief Duty Manager, Chief Projectionist and Tech Officer, for which you need to be a qualified Duty Manager or projectionist respectively. It is possible to run for more than one position, but you will need to state a preference as to which one you'd be your first choice.

    The election will take place in the Annual General Meeting on Monday 8th February (Week 5), which starts at 7.30pm in L3.

    I (Gaby Aptula) will be the returning officer for the election, so all nominations must be sent to me at secretary@filmsoc.warwick.ac.uk by 6pm Wednesday 3rd February (Week 4). Your email must contain:

    • your name,
    • the position you want to run for,
    • university number,
    • name and university number of a nominator.

    Nominations are now open. Anyone wishing to run must be a full member of the society. The nominator must also be a full member of Warwick Student Cinema and may only nominate one candidate. Current Exec members may nominate a candidate, providing they are not running for any position themselves. Nominators will be contacted to confirm nominations.

    Voting will be by the single transferable vote method. All candidates will have 5 minutes in which they can make a short speech and questions can be taken.

    Any queries, please contact me on secretary@filmsoc.warwick.ac.uk.

    Hope to hear from you soon,

    The images with this article give an idea of just some of the films that we're likely to be showing, but there will be many more than just those nine, so this is your chance to have a big say. Indeed, we've five whole weeks to fill (L3 is getting a major refurb in weeks 6-10 to make it a brand spanking new shiny happy place!), so we're looking for thirty or so titles.

    Check out the voting page which will be open until the 2nd February, offer up your thoughts and ideas at our Film Suggestions Forums .

    The programming meeting itself is planned for Wednesday 3rd February (Wed week 4) at 5pm in L3.

    Did you go AllNight? (old)

    This Is It

    Saturday morning saw the exit of some bleary-eyed dedicated film fans from L3 following the lengthy evening's entertainment.

    The night was brimming with great titles from Funny People to Leon. On top of these, we can't forget the brilliant interval entertainment including Rob's fiendish quiz and the Warwick Shootout shorts.

    But the AllNighter could never be complete without the infamous Mystery Film! And suffice to say that the whole theatre was surprised when Michael Jackson's This Is It played (to mixed reactions) before the end of its limited cinematic run

    Congrats to those who made it all the way until morning, and to all our prize winners.

    Hi everyone,

    If you don't already know, I'm Nikita, the new Treasurer and along with that responsibility comes ordering some WSC clothing.

    If this has peaked your interest, there's a range of clothes on offer bearing the society logo on the left breast and if you want it, your name or something else embroidered the right, both in gold. Below are some of the usual items ordered, which you can see modelled by various crew members before films. If there's anything else you fancy or you're not sure what these items are like you can check out the website of the company we order things from at www.admdirect.co.uk

    Polo Shirt £9.95 (£11.71 with name)
    Ladies T-shirt £8.60 (10.36 with name)
    Zip Hoodie £16.55 (18.31 with name)
    Hoodie £15.85 (£17.61 with name)
    Fleece £17.95 (£19.71 with name)

    If you haven't already worked it out, having a name included is an extra £1.76 but is definitely worth it!

    I'm sure by this point you're wondering how you can get hold of this amazing merchandise. It's easy, just email me at treasurer@filmsoc.warwick.ac.uk with your requests including the size required and any extra embroidery you may want. Orders need to be in to me by Monday of Week 9.

    Transformers 2 titleTransformers 2 pic

    Following up 2007’s explosive debut cinematic outing of the Mattel toy franchise, it seemed unlikely that director Michael Bay could outdo himself the second time round. Doubts are put to rest in the form of a hulking explosion of action following Optimus Prime, Shia LeBouef and Megan Fox as they resist the evil Decepticon robots. It’s total Bay-hem!



    Funny People titleFunny People pic Adam Sandler plays a stand-up comedian diagnosed with a terminal blood disorder. He aims to spend his remaining year imparting his humourous wisdom to an up-and-coming young comic played by Seth Rogen. With a supporting cast inlcuding Jonah Hill (Superbad), the title speaks volumes.


    Coraline titleCoraline pic In this beautiful animation from the creator of The Nightmare Before Christmas, a little girl’s wish to escape her dull parents is granted when she discovers a secret portal to a fantasy world in her new house. But is this slightly sinister parallel world where people have buttons for eyes more than she bargained for? Find out in this vibrant and charming tale.

    The Mystery Film picThe Mystery title

    Shrouded in the clouds of a smoke machine and locked deep in the WSC vaults, not to be unveiled until the time is just right (halfway through the night, naturally!), The Mystery Film is the biggest secret on campus.

    Will it be action? Comedy? Erotic thriller?! There’s only one way to find out!
    Click here to find out what the Mystery was!


    Leon picLeon title At a mere twelve years old, Natalie Portman's debut cinema performance in Léon as the young Mathilda is remarkably mature. The rebellious prepubescent's world is blown wide open when her family are killed by her drug-dealing dad's corrupt cop client (acting legend Gary Oldman). Desperate, she turns to mysterious neighbour Léon (French star Jean Reno) for help. He takes her in, picking up the role of a foster father as he goes along, and teaching Mathilda his skills as an expert assassin, so that together they might avenge the girl's family. An indisputable modern great.

    Spring Term Schedule - Now Online (old)

    Spring 2010

    Howdi folks!

    Further to my recent post that had a link to an Excel file including next term's provisional schedule, I've now added a slightly updated version to the normal schedule page, so feel free to go and have a look :-)

    The more astute amongst you will note a few changes that have been enforced already. These include the loss of both Nine, which has had its release date pushed back to 2010, and Scarface, which was only re-released in digital format, rather than 35mm.

    As such, several other changes have been made, with Moulin Rouge! going to the Valentine's day double, Donnie Darko replacing Scarface and The Informant! filling the Friday double of week 9. We've also been able to incorporate both The Godfather and Citizen Kane in what promises to be a great term for lovers of classic screenings!

    There's also Vampire Week on offer during week 9 and the famous Warwick Student Cinema AllNighter, featuring Up, The Big Lebowski, Zombieland, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, The Matrix and, of course, the ever elusive Mystery Film.

    I'll keep everyone posted on any other changes, if and when they are enforced upon us, so keep an eye out here and on the film suggestion forums!

    Warwick Student Cinema - Your Multi-Award Winning Film Society!! (old)

    BFFS

    Over Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th September 2009, representatives of Warwick Student Cinema attended the British Federation of Film Societies Annual Conference in Sheffield. We met with delegates from film societies from all over the country and attended a fascinating seminar for student cinemas. For WSC, the highlight was the awards ceremony on Saturday night. It was a very successful evening as we proudly collected awards for:


    Winners of Best Student Society (for the second year running!)

    Winners of Best Programme Notes

    Distinction for Best Marketing and Publicity

    Special Mention for The Engholm Prize for Film Society of the Year


    Congratulations are due to all of the WSC crew for this amazing accomplishment. All crew members are volunteers who give huge amounts of time and effort into making WSC such a success. Without them, none of this would be possible and this acknowledgement of their skill and dedication is well deserved.

    Many thanks to the BFFS for choosing to recognise the extraordinary efforts of the members, and especially the crew, of Warwick Student Cinema. May there be many more awards in the future!

    Outdoor Screening Success!! (old)

    KPMG Monsters Inc.

    A very big Thank You to everyone who joined us on Rootes Field for the Outdoor Screening of Monsters, Inc. The Screening was an unprecedented success. Not only was it the first Outdoor Screening without a drop of rain, our estimates also put the attendance at well over 500. I hope everyone that was there enjoyed the film and the experience. I also hope that anyone who wasn't there is full of regret and plans to come next year!

    I hope you'll all join me in congratulating the WSC Tech Team, who worked tirelessly all day to make the screening happen. They really did perform a miracle, and are a credit to the society. I hope you'll also join me in thanking the WSC Front of House staff, who meticulously cleared the field, and supported the audience both before and after the event. Their contribution to the success of the event cannot be understated.

    Finally, I'd like to thank the WSC Exec, who dedicated so much time and effort to organising, publicising and finally presenting the Outdoor Screening.

    See you next year!!

    American Beauty replaces The Wrestler (old)

    American Beauty

    Hi all,

    My apologies for this, but we've had to reschedule a bit for this week, as the print of The Wrestler that we'd booked has now become unavailable to us. Thankfully, our suppliers have managed to ship us a copy of 1999's classic American Beauty. The winner of five Academy Awards in 2000 including Best Picture and Best Actor for Kevin Spacey's portrayal of Lester Burnham, is an all-time great - thoroughly deserving to be seen on the big screen.

    The Wrestler As with all occasions on which our schedule has to change, we are very sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause.

    Tickets will be charged at the usual rates and we intend to re-schedule The Wrestler into next term's line-up, so it'll still be coming to the biggest and best screen near you in the not too distant future! Don't forget to have your say at our voting pages and on the Film Suggestions forum.

    I look forward to seeing you all soon.

    Suggestions can made at our film suggestions pages, as well as at our forums, which provide more of an opportunity to put across an argument for why a film should be shown.

    Did you go AllNight? (old)

    Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

    Saturday morning saw the surviving few leave L3 to tell their tale of dedication and spirit to the world. Most particularly, to gloat at those who didn't make the cut!

    Friday night was brimming with great titles from Burn After Reading to The Incredibles. On top of these, we can't forget the brilliant interval entertainment including Rob's tricky quiz and the handover from old to new exec.

    But the AllNighter could never be complete without the infamous Mystery Film! After much teasing, many were pleasantly surprised when Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels graced our screen for the first time since 2005.

    Congrats to those who made it all the way 'til morning, and to all our prize winners.

    And don't forget, there's still plenty more to come from WSC this term. Highlights include acclaimed adult animation Waltz With Bashir (Wed wk 8), romance epic Australia (Sun wk 9), our vintage 70 mm screening of Aliens (Wed wk 9), the ever-classic Shawshank Redemption (Fri wk 9), and our midnight screening of cult Japanese horror Ringu (Sat wk 9) among many, many more.

    At CIA headquarters, Osborne (Malkovich) arrives at a meeting to find that he is getting the sack. His wife is shocked but not especially disappointed as she is already having an affair with Harry (Clooney), a married federal marshal. Meanwhile, fitness centre employee Linda (McDormand) is obsessed with a plan for cosmetic surgery, which she confides to her can-do colleague Chad ( Pitt). When a disc containing material for the CIA analyst's memoirs accidentally falls into the hands of Linda and Chad, the duo are intent on exploiting their find. Events spiral out of everyone's control, in a cascading sequence of hilarious encounters.

However, the mysterious caller orchestrates his escape, placing him in the path of single mum Rachel Holloman (Monaghan). Together they become entangled in a deadly game of cat and mouse…


    Tropic ThunderTropic Thunder pic In the pursuit of realism on a big budget war movie, a group of actors, including the action star desperate for an Oscar, Tugg Speedman (Stiller), the drugged-up comedian, Jeff Portnoy (Black), and the Australian method actor, Kirk Lazarus (Downey Jr), are left in the jungle to fend for themselves. Now facing death at the hands of a long drug gang they must use their very unique skills to survive and make it back home.


    The Mystery FilmMystery

    The most anticipated film in WSC's programme. A secret guarded so closely that only one person in the whole of Warwick University knows what it's going to be! It could be a recent blockbuster, or a preview of a film that hasn't been released in the cinemas! The only way to find out is to be there on the night!



    The IncrediblesThe Incredibles pic The Incredibles follows a family of former superheroes, now protected by the witness protection program after many lawsuits were filed against them forcing them into retirement. Bob Parr/Mr Incredible has never quite got over the good old days of being a superhero. While the rest of the family try to carry on as ‘normal’, Syndrome (a villain with a grudge) abducts Mr Incredible and it is up to the rest of the family to display their unique superpowers to save the day.


    The Fifth ElementThe Fifth Element pic The Fifth Element is an oddball comedy thriller set in the 23rd century, where Korben Dallas (Willis) pilots a flying taxi cab amongst the soaring skyscrapers of a gloriously technicolour metropolis. With an un-named evil threatening the universe, the mysterious ‘fifth element’ – a genetically reconstructed alien woman called Leeloo (Jovovich) – literally falls into Korben’s lap, and he is embroiled in a fantastically convoluted plot that entails an intergalactic cruise, an archeological dig, a hyperreal DJ and a supremely sarcastic and evil villain (Oldman).

    In the wee hours of Saturday morning, another AllNighter came to a close. Last Friday night was packed with great action films, like The Incredible Hulk, alongside classic comedies like Zoolander, and tons of interval entertainment!

    Friday night also saw the best-kept secret of campus unveiled: the Mystery Film was the all-time classic Monty Python's Life of Brian.

    Congratulations to all who made it until the end of Zoolander, and to our raffle and quiz competitors: someone left with a brand new iPod Nano!

    And yet, the term is far from being over, and many great films are still lined up for the end of term, including Wanted, with James McAvoy and Angelina Jolie, the second instalment in the Narnia series, Prince Caspian, and many, many more.

    Set in the future, WALL-E is a garbage disposal robot, designed to clear up the giant mess left by humans and the global consumer corporation. The situation is so dire that humans have deserted the planet in favour of a space cruise ship. Despite being the last robot left, WALL-E spends his days happily compacting rubbish and collecting nick-nacks he finds interesting. One day, a sleek-looking lady robot called Eve arrives. WALL-E immediately falls for her, but his newfound love leads to a much bigger adventure...


    Incredible HulkIncredible Hulk pic This action packed adventure is much more interesting than the somber take on the beloved Marvel Comics hero in 2003. The saga unfolds with a cure in reach for the world’s most primal fury with scientist Bruce Banner (Edward Norton) searching for an antidote. He is pursued by the Abomination (Tim Roth) who is a ruthless aggressive beast whose powers match those of the Hulk himself. This version is indeed bigger, stronger and faster and the effects look more “realistic” to say the least.

    This Halloween (old)

    The Orphanage

    This Halloween Warwick Student Cinema is proud to present The Orphanage. A terrifying ghost story from Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth, Cronos).

    The Orphanage tells the story of Laura (Belén Rueda) who buys the abandoned orphanage where she had lived when she was young. She moves in with her husband, Carlos (Fernando Cayo), and their adopted son Simón (Roger Príncep) who is HIV-positive. Laura plans to refurbish the orphanage and reopen it as a home for other ill or disabled children like Simón. However, Simón has trouble making friends, spending all his time instead with an imaginary friend, another child called Tomás. Laura's concern for her son grows as strange things start happening in the orphanage. Things start to go missing, Simón knows things that he shouldn’t have been able to find out and a sinister child wearing a sack as a mask is seen in the house. Gradually events spiral out of control and the full horror of the orphanage's history is revealed.

    What better way to spend Halloween than watching this wonderful and terrifying ghost story.

    For those of you in your first year at Warwick, it may be a surprise to hear that each year, Warwick Student Cinema teams up with Warwick Student Arts Festival to bring the outdoor cinema experience to campus.

    It may surprise you even further to hear that you can help decide what we show at this special event. There will be a suggestions box available at each of our films over the course of the next week, to choose which film we show at the Outdoor Screening in June. Please keep an eye out for this and choose the U-rated film you'd like to see in the big outdoors this summer!

    Did you go AllNight? (old)

    Another term, another thrilling AllNighter done and dusted; and with one of the best line-ups in years, we hope you didn't miss out. Ghostbusters was our mystery film, a surprising (and popular) late entry to our stellar line-up. Congratulations to everyone who made it right through to Saturday morning, and better luck next time to those of you who didn't. If you missed out, there's always next year, with plenty of time to get into training.

    Well done to Matthew Broxham, Chris Fidge, Russell Bailey and all our other raffle and quiz competitors, and don't forget, we still have some amazing films coming up this term, including 30 Days of Night, the classic Gangster film Goodfellas, and much more

    I am LegendI am Legend pic

    The post-apocalyptic metropolis is introduced with a distinct lack of thriving city noises: no cars, no horns, no yelling - just birds. Times Square is a meadow; ivy twining its way up the walls of quarantined buildings. Most notably, bridges connecting Manhattan to the surrounding boroughs, are destroyed. A genetically engineered cure for cancer took a disastrous turn, accidentally creating the virus, ‘KV’. KV’s spread to humans and its progression into an airborne contagion led to the quarantine of Manhattan. Military Scientist Robert Neville (Will Smith) rushes to evacuate his wife (Salli Richardson) and daughter (Willow Smith) alongside other healthy fleeing New Yorkers, though heroically chooses to stay behind in order to work on a cure for ‘the infected’.


    Shoot 'em UpShoot 'em Up pic Get ready for the definitive action film. Shoot 'em Up kicks off with Smith (Clive Owen) delivering a baby in the middle of a shoot out. After the mother's death he must then find out who the baby is and why psychopathic assassin Hertz (Paul Giamatti) is trying to kill him. Shoot 'em Up never deviates from its action concept with breaks between action sequences few and far between. The action itself is both inventive and spectacular. Most importantly though is that it is a fun film that doesn't take itself too seriously. This sense of humour runs through its huge action set pieces making it one of the most enjoyable films of the year. You'll never see anything else quite like this.


    RatatouilleRatatouille pic Ratatouille is delicious! In this witty fairy-tale of a French rodent with a great passion for cooking, the chefs at Pixar have blended together the right mix of ingredients to deliver a warm and irresistible creation that will no doubt appeal to any audience. The movie revolves around Remy (Patton Oswalt), a rat living in the suburbs of Paris. This rat, however, is far from ordinary. He realises his special talent is for smelling ingredients in food, leading him to believe that his true calling is in cooking. Remy ends up at Gusteau’s restaurant where he befriends Linguini (Luo Romano) who cultivates aspirations of becoming a chef but actually works as the floor scrubber. Surprisingly the partnership between the two produces scrumptious treats!


    The Mystery FilmMystery

    The most anticipated film in WSC's programme. A secret guarded so closely that only one person in the whole of Warwick University knows what it's going to be! It could be a recent blockbuster, or a preview of a film that hasn't been released in the cinemas! The only way to find out is to be there on the night!



    SuperbadSuperbad pic In one of the funniest films of the year, the AllNighter this term sees Seth (Jonah Hill) and Evan (Michael Cera) battle with the insecurities of their life long friendship, and the inevitability of going their separate ways to university. Along with their mutual friend Fogell (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) they plan to leave High School with a bang after being invited to a graduation party, hosted by the girl of Seth’s dreams, Jules (Emma Stone). In an attempt to go down in history, lose their virginities and settle their differences, the geeky trio endeavour to buy alcohol using Fogell’s fake ID. But when cop cars, road accidents and fist fights land them into trouble, their hopes for romance and acclaim go shooting out the window.


    JawsJaws pic Dun-dun. Dun-dun. Dun-dun-dun-dun-dun-dun. You know the drill. Heralded as the most frightening film to come out in the summer of 1975, Jaws recounts the tale of the residents of Amity Island as they are terrorised by a killer great white shark. Police Chief Brody (Scheider), is the new guy in town, charged with the protection of the inhabitants, and the reputation of the island as a tourist destination. When it appears that the murderous shark has set up shop on the coast, Brody, along with marine scientist Hooper (Dreyfuss) and grizzled fisherman Quint , set out on an obscenely tiny boat to destroy the beast at all costs.

    Western Weekend (old)

    western weekend

    Assassination pic Yuma pic

    This weekend Warwick Student Cinema presents a weekend of modern westerns. This Friday sees Russell Crowe and Christian Bale starring in 3:10 to Yuma. A remake of the classic 50s western, Dan Evans (Bale) must help escort the notorious Ben Wade (Crowe) to Contention to face punishments for his crimes. However, Wade's gang will do anything to get the leader back and Wade, though captive, is still just as dangerous to his captors as the Indians and outlaws they encounter.

    On Sunday, WSC is showing The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. This oscar nominated film stars Brad Pitt as the outlaw Jesse James and Casey Affleck as Robert Ford. It tells the story of Jesse Jame's final days before his assassination by Ford. With one of Brad Pitt's best performances, this thought provoking films is rightly thought to be one of the best films of 2007.

    Roles on the WSC Executive (old)

    Elections

    Our elections are to be held after our AGM on Monday Week 5 at 7.30pm, these are the tasks carried out by the members of the exec.

    President: The position of President requires a candidate to be a diplomatic and dependable figurehead for the society, representing the membership in matters within the union and ensuring that pressing issues involving the society are addressed. Any contact external from the union is dealt with by the President. This involves communicating with promotional companies and film related businesses, as well as negotiating and organising the society’s sponsorship. Sponsored Events are also organised by the President, who works closely with the Secretary on many matters. The position entails reacting to the needs of the society as a whole and representing the opinions of a great number of people in a tactful and efficient fashion.

    Secretary: The position of Secretary is mainly an administrative one, no actual day to day running of the society is involved. Organising and taking minutes at all exec meetings, liaising with other societies for film screenings and assisting with anything that needs to be done! Working closely with the president supporting them in everything they do and backing up every decision they make! There is a high level of responsibility for this, though also being the life and soul of Filmsoc and organising the socials!!

    Treasurer: The treasurer of the cinema is the caretaker of all the money that the society takes. They are responsible for paying for all the films, publicity, technical equiptment and anything else that the cinema needs. They are also responsible for all the money coming in from ticket revenue, advertisers, societies and various other places. They work very closely with the secretary, publicity, films and tech officer as these are the key 'money' areas throughout the year. It is a demanding role which needs a lot of organisation and the ability to keep track of the budget and most importantly learning when to say no :-)

    Films Officer: The role of the films officer is to pick a preilminary schedule which is presented at the Extend Programming Meeting, which is the films officer's responsibility to organise and chair. They are also responsible for booking and chasing up any films which have not arrived. The films officer's role includes alot of communication between the soceity and a films agency, ensuring that the correct films arrive for the days they are scheduled and that any changes made to the schedule are relayed to the films agency. Communication with the film agency is a very important part of this job, so the ability to walk and use a phone at the same time is essential!

    Chief Projectionist: The chief projectionist is responsible for making sure there is a qualified projectionist for every show. Overseeing the training of new projectionists, including initial and additional training sessions, and organising snaps tests and qualification shows. Moderating the projection and film dump mailing lists. Chairing full projection and qualified projectionist committee meetings. Ensuring all films are taken back to the film dump after use. Ordering new trailers. Liaising with the technical officer in the upkeep of all projection equipment. Maintaining the ads and trailers reel.

    Chief Duty Manager: The Chief Duty Manager chairs the Front of House Committee meetings, oversees the training of DMs and stewards, and organises DM qualifications. Although not necessarily the first point of contact, the Chief DM is the main point of contact for those interested in becoming involved with FoH. The Chief DM ensures that FoH has enough of the following: spare change; till rolls; night safe boxes; security tags; coin bags; banking books; carbon paper. It is the Chief DM's responsibility to monitor stewards' crew status, moderate and maintain the DM mailing list, and ensure that trainee DMs sign up for an acceptable number of shows. The Chief DM ensures that every show is covered by a DM and has enough stewards. Annually, the Chief DM updates the FoH risk assessments. Other roles include taking lost property to the Porter's Lodge on the Science Concourse and asking Central Timetabling for permission to allow food into L3 for AllNighters and occasional special events. Finally, the Chief DM should deal with any general issues that arise in FoH and ensure that FoH standards are maintained.

    Publicity Officer: The Publicity Officer is responsible for organising (and helping to design) the various forms of publicity that WSC produces. This includes organising the gathering of graphics and titles and then designing of the termly booklets and posters. The reviews section of the website also needs to be updated with these graphics and titles. At the start of term the publicity officer then needs to organise the distribution of publicity around campus accommodation and the departments. Also during the term, weekly handouts are normally designed and distributed both around campus and too the audience before films. Publicity Officer is a role that is both organisational and hands on. Running the publicity team at WSC offers many varied challenges and, although sometimes intensive, can be very rewarding.

    Technical Officer: The technical officer is in charge of maintaining and upgrading the equipment that is necessary to run films at a cinema quality standard, and when things get broken, ensuring they are fixed quickly. They are also responsible for chairing the tech crew, who are qualified projectionists interested in the technical aspects of projection, who help the tech officer in the discussion, maintainance and upgrading of the equipment. Moderating the tech forum and mailing lists. Liasing constantly with the chief projectionist on the equipment status, and with the treasurer for purchase orders. There is a fairly large responsibility since if something doesn't get fixed it can impact on the running of WSC, however you do get a large chunk of the budget which is nice!

    IT Officer: The IT officer is responsible for our website - making sure it is in working order and looking good. It is their job to ensure that all relevant WSC information is available there, and to arrange the creation of new features as required. The IT officer is also responsible for any other IT provision that the Society may require. This includes facilities for ticket selling, publicity production, email and forums, all of which are an integral part of our day to day operation. They are also the first point of call to provide support when the mouse stops working!

    If you wish to run for one of these positions please email me at secretary@filmsoc.warwick.ac.uk with these details:

    • Name
    • University Number
    • Position or Positions standing for with a clear preference made.

    Did you go AllNight? (old)

    Another AllNighter over for another term ... and what an evening it was! From 8pm, when the audience crowded into L3, we embarked on an epic evening of film viewing. There really was something for everyone. The Bourne Ultimatum kicked off our evening, followed rapidly by Will Ferrell's lastest classic comedy, Blades of Glory. Trainspotting was next, and then it was time for the Mystery ....

    Each term, one film is secretly booked, made up and projected; the Mystery is the best kept secret in WSC, only two people ever know what it is. A big hand goes to our Films Officer, Claire, for delivering another stonking Mystery film this year, in that cinematic masterpiece, the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

    Following the high of Tim Curry in heels, we brought you the latest offering from the wonderful anime studio, Studio Ghibli; an adaptation of the well known Earthsea Quartet, Tales from Earthsea. Finally, we closed the evening (and indeed, brought you all into the next day) with the ultimate classic action movie - Die Hard.

    And let's not forget the interval entertainment - congratulations to all our quiz and raffle winners, and those of you who made it through the whole night intact! And of course, a big thank you to everyone who made it happen - the exec, the staff, and everyone else who helped in all those strange little ways!

    Don't forget that voting for next terms AllNighter is underway on the suggestions page, so hurry on over and drop us a suggestion. Give yourself a pat on the back if you made it, and if you didn't ... well, there's always next time!

    Films

    Bourne UltimatumBourne Ultimatum pic

    The Bourne Ultimatum sees Matt Damon’s superspy still struggling to piece together gaps in his memory. Bourne finds some clues to his identity in an article written by a London journalist. The article suggests the existence of a top-secret CIA black-ops mission, Operation BlackBriar, that commissioned willing agents like Bourne into carrying out assassinations. Naturally, the CIA considers that information dangerous, and commits all its global resources to eradicating Bourne. Bourne must finally, ultimately, uncover his dark past, even if it means going straight into the lion’s den. Director Paul Greengrass, creates a realistic film with a political conscience that is easily the most exciting installment in the trilogy.


    Blades of GloryBlades of Glory pic Will Ferrell plays flamboyant and obnoxious figure skater Chazz Michael Michaels who wins a joint gold medal in the National Figure Skating Championships with his rival Jimmy MacElroy, played by Jon Heder. The two engage in a full on brawl on the podium and are both subsequently banned from the sport for life, or so they believe. Years later after a chance re-encounter the two men discover a loop hole and realise the only way to compete once more is to work together and become the first ever same sex doubles figure skating team. Will they manage to forget their differences to win the gold once again? Blades of Glory is absolutely hilarious, full of cheap and cheerful slapstick comedy that will certainly keep you awake through the AllNighter this term!


    TrainspottingTrainspotting pic The fierce originality and provocative plotline of Shallow Grave won't even begin to prepare you for the experience that is Trainspotting. The gorgeous, too-good-to-be-true team of director Boyle and producer MacDonald have conjured up another hit with this flashily told story of drug addiction in 80s Edinburgh. Adapted from the seemingly unfilmable Irvine Welsh novel, this bleak and unrelenting vision of Renton and his whole sick crew of druggies from hell (or Edinburgh - they're interchangeable) packs a visceral punch, and will leave a deep impression on your psyche. Add to that an exciting soundtrack from the likes of Leftfield and Iggy Pop, and you've got an unforgettable visual orgy.


    The Mystery FilmMystery

    The most anticipated film in WSC's programme. A secret guarded so closely that only one person in the whole of Warwick University knows what it's going to be! It could be a recent blockbuster, or a preview of a film that hasn't been released in the cinemas! The only way to find out is to be there on the night!



    Tales from EarthseaTales from Earthsea In the land of Earthsea the crops are dying, disease is rife and even the minds of the people seem to be withering away. As the wizards lose their powers they sense that something terrible is deliberately destroying the balance of the whole world. Meanwhile, two lonely figures meet in the desert: one Arren, a troubled boy with a mysterious sword; and the other a wizard named Sparrowhawk. Good and bad magic pitted against each other is the perfect scenario for the creativity behind all of Ghibli's artwork and the final fight is where the film really comes into its own. Tales from Earthsea is Studio Ghibli gone all serious - a clever and beautiful film.


    Die HardDie Hard pic New York cop John McClane (Bruce Willis) is visiting his estranged wife at Nakatomi Plaza skyscraper during their Christmas party. Events take a dramatic turn when terrorists, led by Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman), take over the building. Our hero manages to evade the intruders but receives little help from the powerless local police department and the inept FBI. This leaves him no option but attempt to single-handedly thwart the terrorists' plans and save the day. Die Hard was one of the most successful films of the 80s and defined a genre. The chance to see this on the big screen cannot be missed.

    Warwick Student Cinema is always looking to bring you newer, different, and exciting films, and this term is no exception. We at WSC are delighted to be bringing you a preview screening of Sean Penn's Into the Wild.

    Fresh from an impressive reception at the London Film Festival, Penn's tale of self exploration and discovery will be winging its way up to Coventry for a special FREE Preview Screening on Monday 5th November. Based on the novel by John Krakauer, the film tells the story of Cristopher McCandless, who, after graduating from University, donates his life savings to charity and abandons everything he owns and knows in order to hitchhike to Alaska, and live in the wilderness.

    The film charts his epic journey, and his encounters with a number of characters that will shape the rest of his life. Having received rave reviews, and already tipped for an Oscar or two, this is certainly not a film to be missed. So remember, 7.30pm, in L3 on the Science Concourse on Monday 5th November (that's Week 6), to enjoy the free preview screening of Into the Wild.

    Casino Royale

    What is it about James Bond that makes him so quintessentially British? Is it the Martini? His way with women? Or the way he always remembers to say please and thank you? Whatever it is, you - the voting public of WSC - have voted the super-sleuth's latest incarnation, the rough-and-tumble Daniel Craig back onto the big screen for an astonishing fourth screening in under a year.

    Casino Royale has beaten off stiff competition to become Warwick's Favourite British Film, taking pride of place on Thursday Week Four, to celebrate the end of British Film Week; five days of British Films, kicking off with Shane Meadows' This is England; an award-winning exploration of Thatcherite England. Comedy duo Mitchell and Webb grace the big screens for the first time, in the hilarious comedy, Magicians, and Wednesday sees some classic bond hitting the screen, with Sean Connery as the leading man in Goldfinger.

    British Film Week (old)

    Term one is well under way, and if you haven't been to see us yet, you've missed some cracking films so far. But never fear, WSC's goodie box is deep and full of surprises; we have much more coming up in the next few weeks for your viewing pleasure.

    Magicians This is England

    Week Four sees the arrival of British Film Week - a four-film extravaganza in celebration of all that is great about British Cinema. Coinciding with the British Film Festival, we'll be bringing you a range of British films; from the classic Bond film Goldfinger, with Sean Connery in the driving seat as Britain's favourite super-spy. Mitchell and Webb will be joining us, in their first full-length film, Magicians, a true British comedy. The week will be kicked off by Shane Meadows award winning examination of the British working class in the early 80s. This Is England has won multiple awards, as well as boasting a truly impressive soundtrack.

    However, the star of the show is yet to be chosen. On Thursday week 4, WSC will be playing Warwick's Favourite British film, as chosen by you. What makes a great British film? Should we celebrate the classic British comedy that is Monty Pythons The Life of Brian? Or what about the original action hero, in his redefining role in Casino Royale? What about exploring the darker side of society, in Trainspotting? Or perhaps we should celebrate our multiculturality, like in East is East?

    Shaun of the Dead Casino Royale Trainspotting

    Whatever it is that you think makes the best British film, make sure that you tell us. Come along to WSC before any screening, and fill in a voting slip. And be sure to watch out for the announcement of Warwicks Favourite British Film!!!!

    Warwick Student Cinema aims to offer new and exciting things to its membership throughout the term, not just the first week. We project 70mm film twice in the first and second terms of the year, have midnight showings and offer free special events to our members each term. This term, we have the UBS Sponsored Event, where there are many prizes to be won. We are also encouraging our members to vote for their favourite British Film, which ultimately will be screened in Week 4 to coincide with the celebration of British Film Week. On top of this, The AllNighter offers a night of cinematic entertainment as films are shown throughout the night, complete with the 'Mystery Film', intermissions for short films, the WSC quiz, raffle and give-aways. This year the event is headlined by The Bourne Ultimatum. Can you guess what else will be shown?

    Scream it like you mean it- WSC is awesome

    Scream it like you mean it- WSC is awesome (Hitchcock's Psycho hits the screen on Wednesday Week 5).

    Warwick Student Cinema is volunteer based, with students running the society FOR students. Therefore, YOU can get involved in either projection or front of house. Ask any WSC steward about how to get involved. YOU also have a say in how the society is run, with forums and polls open to all members.

    So... in conclusion... Warwick Student Cinema is here for you, whether you want to get involved or simply just want to come and enjoy the cinema experience and watch a whole host of diverse films.

    Sell-out Shows (old)

    We've already had a sellout showing this term (Atonement), so we thought we'd let you know how you can get to see the film you want and not get turned away due to a sellout.

    Which shows are going to sell out?

    Unfortunately, we just don't know. We can tell from UK Box Office takings which films are likely to get the biggest audiences, and we generally schedule these for the double screenings, Friday nights and Sunday nights.

    How can you let me know a film will be busy or sell out?

    Again, we can't tell in advance what's going to be busy. We've had massive box office successes that have flopped at the Student Cinema and obscure movies that have nearly sold out. You can take a guess that a hugely popular film that you want to see might be busy, but your guess is as good as ours!

    How can I guarantee that I'll get a seat? Can I book?

    We don't offer a booking service, and we're unlikely to in the future due to the cost of operation of that sort of system. If you turn up early for a screening (6.10 for a 6.30 showing, 7.10 for a 7.30 showing, etc.) then as things stand you're going to get a seat. Also, early screenings tend to be less busy: while the 9.30 pm screening of Atonement sold out, the 6.30 pm screening still had 130 seats available.

    Can't you just put on an extra show?

    We try to do everything we can to make sure all those who want to see a film, can see a film. However the vast majority of the people who are WSC Crew (the projectionists, stewards, duty managers, etc.) are students. And no-one involved with WSC gets paid for their time; everyone volunteers themselves for the sheer enjoyment of running what is one of the best student cinemas in the country. This means that, while we can organise people to staff our regular screenings, we can't guarantee to be able to put on an extra screening of a popular movie at very short notice. We usually only know a film is going to sell out five minutes before it does, and trying to organise people for an extra screening is just one of the many things the duty manager present could be doing at that time. If we can't get enough people organised for an extra show before we start turning customers away, then we won't be able to publicise it sufficiently to get enough people to come to make it worthwhile.

    Having said all of this, when a film is massively popular it might get considered to come back the next term for an extra showing (breaking our usual 'rule' of not showing the same film twice within three years).

    Will I be able to sit with my friends?

    If you arrive early and there is plenty of space then, of course, you'll be able to sit together with your friends. However at a very busy showing, please be aware that you may have to sit in whatever spaces are available in L3; we simply don't have the time to try to move people about to make blocks of space so you can sit together. You'll still be able to talk about the movie once it's finished!

    Click replaces The Good German (old)

    [ click ]

    Due to unforeseen distribution problems, we are unable to screen The Good German on Thursday March the 8th. Look out for it on next term's schedule. In replacement, we will be showing the hilarious comedy Click featuring Adam Sandler.

    Michael Newman (Adam Sandler) appears to have it all. However, long hours at the office run by his ungrateful boss (David Hasselfhoff) puts a strain on his family life. Then he stumbles upon Morty, an eccentric inventor, who offers him a universal remote control that allows him to fast-forward, rewind and pause any event in his life. Before long, he realises that he has neglected his family. Can he make things right? Click is a high-concept film exploring the problem of career-obsessed individuals, with some profoundly emotional moments amidst the immature humour and fantasy gags.

    Come join us this Thursday at 7:30pm for a fantastic evening!

    And the Mystery is..... (old)

    The Moguls The Moguls!

    A lesser known, but nonetheless entertaining comedy starring Jeff Bridges was the mystery film at WSC's AllNighter event on Friday night. The Moguls was received with anticipation and a great deal of interest as the audience didn't seem overly familiar with the brilliant yet subtle comedy from director Michael Traeger. A swarm of familiar faces including Joe Pantoliano (The Matrix) and William Fichtner (Prison Break) aided the film's reception, a film that contributed greatly to the night as a whole.

    Thanks to everyone who attended, and congratulations to those who fought tiredness to enjoy all 6 films (there were quite a few of you). The night was a great success, with smiles all round. Roll on the next AllNighter...

    Service as Normal!!! (old)

    Windy

    As you may well have heard, the university wasn't built to withstand the weather we've been having today. Never fear, we at Warwick Student Cinema aren't afraid of a little wind and the show will be going on as usual tonight.

    Due to parts of Library Road and the library bridge being closed, access to L3 will be a little more tricky with people being asked to go through the engineering department (opposite humanities). Enter through the main doors and go up the stairs one level. Then go left and down the corridor left of the computer room, follow this down and you should eventually arrive at the entrance at the other side of the library bridge. Hopefully we should have signs directing people from the engineering entrance and maybe some friendly faces guiding the way.

    We have an excellent show for you tonight so don't be put off by the bad weather. Hope to see you there!

    Did you go AllNight? (old)

    Superman Returns picYou Me and Dupree picCongratulations to all you film-fans who made it through our Autumn AllNighter. True to Warwick Student Cinema form, it was a fabulous night of films, fun and …um, games. The evening started in style, with the rippling muscles and red pants of the original super-hero in Superman Returns. Some good old-fashioned world-rescuing ensues, as the older and wiser (yet still deliciously hunky) Superman once again defeats his arch-nemesis, and almost gets the girl. The air of victory in L3 is palpable. One down, four to go. After the quiz – set while everyone’s still awake - the evening marches on. This time it’s a bit of lighthearted fun as Owen Wilson, Matt Dillon and Kate Hudson learn that three’s a crowd in You, Me and Dupree. Wilson’s antics as the never-housebroken Dupree, and Dillon’s gradual descent into insanity send laughter ricocheting around the walls. After all, there’s nothing funnier than an extended toilet joke.

    g103Memento picInterval two sees the arrival of G103 – the cult Maths Department film that’s swept across campus. Starring several of WSC’s very own stars, we were with them body and soul as they leapt towards the emergency chalk. (And did anyone spot the covert advertising?). Moving on to the third film, we were taxing the mental powers of everyone in the room, with the bizarrely backwards Memento. With more twists than a curly fry, this film was two hours of tension that kept everyone on their toes. The third interval saw (as well as a well deserved loo-break)the prizes for the Quiz and the much awaited Raffle! Congratulations to all the winners!

    Big Lebowski Pic picFinally, the moment we’d all been waiting for – after an agonising wait through some student made shorts, and the teasing pre-mystery reel, the Mystery Film was revealed as none other than the Big Lebowski. Jeff Bridges “The Dude” is the ultimate LA slacker, drawn into a plot of faux kidnapping, murder, and messed-up rugs. Soon the Dude and his bowling buddies are being chased by everyone in town, from porn tycoons to the mysterious nihilists in leather trousers. One of the best Mysteries in years, the Big Lebowski was greeted with a cheer, and its slick style eased us into dawn.

    CarsFour films down and one to go, the chequered flag was in sight. Time for the final film – the most recent offering from Disney’s Pixar Studios picks up the pace as we follow the trials of Lightning MacQueen – the fastest young rookie on the circuit. Both high octane and touching (in that Disney way), Cars was the perfect end to a perfect night, easing us into a shiny new day in which yes, the hero does get the girl, and save the world, and they all live happily ever after (After breakfast and a few hours kip, anyway!)

    So that was that, another whirlwind tour of movie-land, brought to you by the awesome folks at WSC. And if you didn’t make it this time, there’s still time to get in training for Spring 07, when you get another chance. Yes, we do it all again! As for what and when …. Watch this space!

    Films

    Superman ReturnsSuperman Returns pic

    Starting five or so years after the events chronicled in Superman II, Lex Luthor is out of jail and eager to pickup on a real estate scheme similar to his plan in the original Superman. His plan, however, is of planetary proportions. As a result, director Singer wisely moves away from bringing in a comic book-inspired super-baddie to rough up our hero and instead focuses on Luthor's hatred of a "god in blue tights". If Brandon Routh in a tight blue outfit cannot tempt you to see this film then maybe something else can: Marlon Brando, risen from the dead in some archive footage as Superman’s father. This surely stretches the boundaries and possibilities of film. Not to be missed!


    You Me and DupreeYou Me and Dupree pic Dupree (Wilson) flies to Hawaii to watch his old buddy Carl (Matt Dillon) marry his lovely girlfriend Molly (Kate Hudson). As soon as he steps into the picture the honeymoon is over. But Carl, being the generous/foolishly naive guy that he is, invites his newly fired, homeless best man to crash at their house for a few days. Within one week he clogs every toilet, orders HBO without permission, and botches an interview by proudly admitting he is not much of a workhorse. It looks like the third wheel has no intention of rolling away anytime soon. For a good laugh this is definitely recommended. Come and find your “ness.” (There’s only one way you can find out what that means…) Owen Wilson die-hards will love it.


    MementoMemento pic Leonard has lost his short term memory and lives amidst total confusion. To keep track of what he gleams through the day he takes Polaroid snaps of anyone he comes into contact with and even uses himself as a human jotting pad, writing reminders all over his body. One of those messages is terrifying. Written backwards so he can read it only in the mirror, it details the rape and murder of his wife. Not knowing who he can trust or whether he has asked questions for the first or the millionth time, he desperately struggles to discover what happened, why it happened and who caused it. A film worth remembering again and again and again…


    The Mystery Film The most anticipated film in WSC's programme. A secret guarded so closely that only one person in the whole of Warwick University knows what it's going to be! It could be a recent blockbuster, or a preview of a film that hasn't been released in the cinemas! The only way to find out is to be there on the night!


    CarsCars Populated by adorable anthropomorphic automobiles alone, the world of Cars certainly makes for an idyllic setting: no drivers, no pollution, just cars. At the heart of this paradise we have Radiator Springs, the home of a wacky community of red-neck automobiles with madcap voices and cute small town values. This is where our hero Lightning McQueen, voiced by Owen Wilson, finds himself marooned whilst trying to get to race in the all-important Piston Cup. In true boy-racer style this arrogant yet super snazzy racing car thinks he knows it all, and it’s up to the residents of Radiator Springs to teach him some valuable lessons. Cars is such a luxurious and professionally engineered piece of entertainment, living up to Pixar’s immense reputation undoubtedly.

    The AllNighter

    REVIEW

    Oh yes, it was the night all of us silver screen addicts were waiting for, the time to push our film fortitude to the limits. Armed with pillows and a good supply of snacks for a long camp out in L3, last Friday (Week 8) the WSC hosted the highly anticipated All Nighter, this term with an extra special nineties twist.

    There were five cinematic greats in store that evening, kicking off with the highly emotional Shawshank Redemption, which follows the poignant goings on of an unfortunate US prisoner who is wrongly convicted of his wife's murder. Also on the programme to lighten the mood was the popular comedy The Wedding Singer, as well as the sophisticated thriller The Usual Suspects. As if this wasn't enough, what followed was the firm sci-fi favourite, The Matrix.

    However, the All Nighter wouldn't be the All Nighter without its mystery film. After three movies of action and excitement the secret was finally let out - it was the teen comedy American Pie, the epitome of the nineties theme. This certainly sparked up the agenda after the thought provoking Usual Suspects.

    Friday was also a particularly momentous day, for the All-90s night marked the end of last year's Exec, who handed over the reigns at around midnight to the new team, which is now headed by president James Emmott.

    Also to break up the fantastic feast of film the evening's events, there was a brilliant raffle, as well as a challenging quiz to keep everyone on their toes. Big congratulations to the winners of those! And of course a huge well done to everyone who managed to last the whole night!

    The AllNighter

    American PieAnd the mystery was......American Pie, providing a worthy companion to the Wedding Singer helping even out the genres of our well-supported All-90s night. Thank you to everyone who attended and helped make the event such a success. To those who stayed awake - I salute you!

    Of course we couldn't have done it without the dedicated crew working both behind the scenes and at front of house. So a big thank you to all involved.

    Last but by no means least, thank you very much to the old exec, whose term officially came to conclusion between the Wedding Singer and the Usual Suspects. We wish them well in their next adventures.

    The AllNighter

    FRIDAY WEEK 8 (24th February) - doors open 7.30pm

    The AllNighter is WSC's flagship event, and one not to be missed. It's a night of great films and interval entertainment, creating an atmosphere second to none!

    Films

    The Shawshank Redemption In 1947, Andy Dufresne is sent to Shawshank prison to serve out two life sentences for the murders of his wife and her lover. He strikes up a friendship with Red, a convicted murderer, and one of the few inmates to actually confess to his guilt. When Andy asks Red to get him a small rock hammer so he can carve a chess set out of rocks, no-one could possibly imagine the consequences.


    The Wedding Singer Robby is a wedding singer who prides himself on his romantic nature, Julia is a waitress engaged to Glenn who will not set a date. When they meet at a wedding they strike up a friendship. Everybody but themselves see the obvious: they are perfect for each other. What follows is a race for these two oblivious lovers to see the light before Julia ties the knot with Glenn.


    The Usual Suspects Five Criminals. One Line Up. No Coincidence. This is a crime thriller of epic proportions, truly one of the best films ever made. A tangled story unfolds from the mouth of Verbal Kint, beginning with five criminals being hauled into a line up together and culminating in a burning freighter with $91 million missing, 27 dead bodies on board and only two survivors. Throw in Keyser Soze, a terrifying figure of legend and you have the mother of all plots.


    The Mystery Film The most anticipated film in WSC's programme. A secret guarded so closely that only one person in the whole of Warwick University knows what it's going to be! It could be a recent blockbuster, or a preview of a film that hasn't been released in the cinemas! The only way to find out is to be there on the night!


    The Matrix Thomas Anderson leads a double life, computer programmer by day; Neo by night, providing programmes for mescaline-soaked hackers. After a disturbing message leads him to an encounter with Trinity in a nightclub, he finds out that what he thinks is reality is actually a computer-generated fantasy. And so begins his involvement with the few rebels struggling to free humanity from the Matrix. Absolute 90s classic.

    Plus exciting interval entertainment including quiz, raffle and much more 90s fun!

    Prices

    Ticket Price

    Another Awesome AllNighter!! (old)

    Autumn Term AllNighter 2005

    Well the AllNighter has turned out to be another success, and the Mystery Film has been revealed; this term we have gone for another classic choice - The Goonies

    The Goonies Every kid has imagined what it would be like to go on great and glorious adventures. Pirate ships, police chases, treasure chests full of gold, and surrounded by human skeletons with patches over the eyes; the inherent excitement in the possibility of a cavernous wonder world beneath the very streets where they live. The Goonies is about a group of kids who have grown up together and are about to be torn apart because their parents are being forced to sell their homes. In the attic of one of their houses (Mikey, played by Sean Astin), they find an endless supply of fascinating things - treasure maps, paintings, cryptic writings in strange languages. They find a map that sounds promising, and decide to see if it has any value, hoping to be able to find enough treasure to prevent their parents from losing their homes.

    The Bad Guys The sense of adventure and hope that are presented in The Goonies is very uplifting and inspiring. The lovable characters are perfectly developed and endlessly entertaining. Many of them, particularly Sean Astin and Corey Feldman, delivered the best performances of their future careers right here in this early adventure film. This movie can be enjoyed by virtually anyone, and was well recieved, unlike the rendition of The Teletubbies which preceded it at our AllNighter!

    Thanks to everyone who made the evening a success. The Front of House team, the Projectionists, and the rest of the Exec all put in a lot of work to make this event happen!

    We now all eagerly await next terms AllNighter, as well as all the other films in between of course!

    Autumn Term AllNighter 2005

    FRIDAY WEEK 7 (11TH NOVEMBER) - doors open 7.30pm

    The AllNighter is WSC's flagship event, and one not to be missed. It's a night of great films and interval entertainment, creating an atmosphere second to none!

    Films

    The 40 year-Old Virgin

    The 40 Year-Old Virgin Andy Stitzer lives quite happily in the comfort zone of his regimented life, but when he confesses his sexual status at a poker game it becomes apparent that painful miscues have led to a prolonged virginity. Consequently, his new-found friends become obsessed with getting him laid. Following a sequence of disastrous attempts to find Andy a woman, possible redemption arrives in the shape of Trish. Hollywood has here created a warm, intelligent, hilarious comedy that has a thing or two to say about the human condition.


    Die Hard

    Die Hard New York cop John McClane (Bruce Willis) is visiting his estranged wife at Nakatomi Plaza skyscraper during their Christmas party. Events take a dramatic turn when terrorists, led by Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman), take over the building. Our hero manages to evade the intruders but receives little help from the powerless local police department and the inept FBI. This leaves him no option but attempt to singlehandedly thwart the terrorists' plans and save the day. Die Hard was one of the most successful films of the 80s and defined a genre. The chance to see this on the big screen cannot be missed.


    Kung Fu Hustle

    Kung Fu Hustle Welcome to a kitchen sink gangster film set in 1940s Shanghai; a Scary Movie style homage to its genre, jam-packed with gags and violence. All-singing and all-dancing, Kung Fu Hustle is a thoroughly silly CGI-laden affair that follows Sing, a waster who desperately wants to join the notorious top hat-wearing Axe Gang as they subdue the final unconquered area of the city: Pig Sty Alley. A great nod to action and slapstick comedy, with some inventive use of special effects, its surreal but good fun.


    The Mystery Film The most anticipated film in WSC's programme. A secret guarded so closely that only one person in the whole of Warwick University knows what it's going to be! It could be a recent blockbuster, or a preview of a film that hasn't been released in the cinemas! The only way to find out is to be there on the night!


    Spirited Away

    Spirited Away Like Alice in Wonderland if written by Salvador Dali, this animation tells the story of a young girl, Chihiro, who accidentally enters into a world that is both fantastic and terrifying, where the Queen of Hearts is the ruthless witch Yubaba and her empire is a huge bathhouse which services the Gods of Japan. With her parents turned into pigs and fattened up for a feast, Chihiro attempts to find her place in this harsh new world, guided by the mysterious Haku. An incredibly magical story created by beautiful visuals and unsurpassed imagination.


    Monty Python's Life of Brian

    Monty Python's Life of Brian In this classic Monty Python film, it's Christmas Day in Judea about 2000 years ago and two miracles have occurred. Jesus has been born. So has Brian Cohen. Hailed by three not-sowise men, Brian's life starts in the way it shall go on: he is mistaken as the Messiah. Life of Brian has stood the test of time, both as a cinematic masterpiece and ground-breaking satirical comedy. Still hilarious and provocative, it remains one the few comedies that went where no one else dared to tread.

    Thanks!! (old)

    I'd just like to say a big thank you on behalf of the exec to all the associates for all their help and support over the last academic year.

    There are several key members who are leaving us for the scary 'real world' and they will all be missed. These people range form ex exec members including the former WSC President Phil Lurie to newer members who despite their short involvment have contributed greatly!

    I hope that everyone who is leaving Warwick will keep in touch and stay involved wherever possible.

    Thank you once again!!!

    The AllNighter success (old)

    Well another successful AllNighter is over. We hope everyone had a great time and especially enjoyed our much anticipated Mystery Film. This term we chose to show a well loved 'classic' movie - Back to the Future.

    [ Back To The Future ]

    Michael J. Fox stars as Marty McFly, a typical American teenager of the Eighties accidentally sent back to 1955 in a plutonium-powered DeLorean "time machine" invented by slightly mad scientist Christopher Lloyd. During his often hysterical, always amazing trip back in time, Marty must make certain his teenage parents-to-be, Crispin Glover and Lea Thompson, meet and fall in love -- so he can get back to the future.

    A big congratulations to all of our prize winners on the night who won a selection of prizes including an iPod, limited edition film cells, film passes and more.

    Finally a big thank you to everyone for coming. Also thank you to Deloitte for working with us to make this event possible and free to all! And last but not least a big thank you on behalf of the WSC Exec to all our Associate members who made tonight possible.

    We cannot operate without willing volunteers and it is all good fun. So if you want to be involved in the next AllNighter and lots more fun then please get in touch. Thank you again.

Only one of each major prize is available - in the event of a tie a winner will be chosen at random. Warwick Student Cinema's decision is final. Entry in the giveaways implies acceptance of terms and conditions.

    [ Sahara ]

    We start the night off with Sahara. Searching for a treasure on the River Niger,  Dirk Pitt thwarts the attempted assassination of a beautiful U.N. scientist investigating a disease that is driving thousands of North Africans to death. The suspected cause of the raging epidemic is vast pollution that threatens to extinguish all life in the world's seas. Racing to save the world from environmental catastrophe, Pitt and his team run a gauntlet between a billionaire French industrialist and a bloodthirsty West African tyrant. Now amidst the blazing, shifting sands of the Sahara, Dirk Pitt will make a desperate stand - in a battle the world cannot afford to lose! (Running time 124 mins)

    [ Constantine ]

    Following this, the second film, Constantine. John Constantine (Reeves) a man cursed with various psychic gifts, who lives a life haunted by demons that he exorcises from the possessed, and sends back to Hell. HIs days are infinitely gloomy and he walks alone until he meets Angela (Weisz), a police officer investigating the death of Isabel, her twin sister. Allegedly, Isabel killed herself by jumping off the roof of the mental institution her family placed her in, but security footage shows her whispering the name Constantine before she falls... (Running time 120 mins)

    [ Melinda and Melinda ]

    The third film of the AllNighter will be Melinda and Melinda. Over dinner Sy (Wallace Shawn), a playwright proposes an intellectual exercise to fellow playwright Max (Larry Pine) and dinner guests. Is life typically tragic or comic? To illustrate his point he begins to tell a story which he invites the others to embellish. The story starts as follows: A young Manhattan couple, throw a dinner party when their long-lost friend Melinda appears at their door, bedraggled and woebegone. The story continues in two versions; firstly the tragic - where Melinda is a disturbed woman who leaves her husband, but then falls into suicidal depression when he takes the children away. Secondly, Melinda the comic - where she is the childless and carefree neighbour of the dinner hosts. Back and forth the stories go, contrasting the destinies of the two Melindas. (Running time 100 mins)

    [ Mystery Film ]

    The fourth film will be our anticipated Mystery Film. Over the years the WSC AllNighters have had a wide variety of different and exciting mystery films, including E.T. 20th Anniversary, Plunkett & Macleane, Kiss of the Dragon, Thirteen Days and not forgetting the remarkable House of Flying Daggers! Over the years the Films and Admin Officers have used every possible technique to secure a fantastic AllNighter film for you, and this time is no exception!

    [ Shrek ]

    For those who have made it this far, sit back and enjoy the penultimate film of the night: Dreamworks' animated treat, Shrek. Shrek is a big green ogre who lives alone in the woods, feared by all the people in the land of Duloc. When Lord Farquaad, the ruler of Duloc, exiles all the fairytale beings in the woods, Shrek looses his peaceful life and his home becomes a camp for the banished beings. So, he sets off to find Lord Farquaad and convince him to take the fairytale beings back. Lord Farquaad accepts, under one condition. Shrek must first go and find the beautiful young princess Fiona, who will become Farquaad's bride. So, the big Ogre begins his quest, along with his newfound and very adorable donkey friend... (Running time 90 mins)

    [ The Interpreter ]

    For the finale of the night we will show The Interpreter. Escalating events begin when U.N. translator Silvia Broome alleges that she has overheard a death threat against an African head of state, spoken in a rare dialect few people other than Silvia can understand. In an instant, Silvia's life is turned upside down as she becomes a hunted target of the killers. Placed under the protection of federal agent Tobin Keller, Silvia's world only grows more nightmarish. As Keller digs deeper into his eyewitness' past and her secretive world of global connections, the more suspicious he becomes that she herself might be involved in the conspiracy. With every step of the way, he finds more reasons to mistrust her. Is Sylvia a victim? A suspect? Or something else entirely? And can Tobin, coping with his own personal heartache, keep her safe? (Running time 128 mins)

    All Nighter (old)

    Friday 18th February, L3 staged our spring term All Nighter event, which was a great success. With six fantastic films, an Oscar-themed quiz, a raffle, the exec handover, a student film and much more besides, this made for a special evening. Congratulations to the many people who were lucky enough to win prizes in either the quiz or the raffle. For those of you not in attendance, they ranged from DVDs through movie posters to inflatable Shark Tale characters.

    For anyone wondering what the mystery film was, it was Bubba Ho-Tep, which can best be described as JFK and Elvis do battle with an Ancient Egyptian Mummy in order to save the souls of their fellow residents at the nursing home where they are currently seeing out their days. It came as a complete surprise to most and seemed to go down fairly well.

    Finally, I just wanted to thank everyone who attended and made this such a great night, whilst wishing all of the new Exec good luck over the coming year.

    The Allnighter

    It's that time of the term again - The All Nighter is upon us! Tonight, L3 will stage Warwick Student Cinema's most prestigious night, and with six fantastic films on show, there's absolutely no excuse not to be there.

    Tickets will be on sale from 18:30 (6:30 pm) onwards, so please arrive early to avoid disappointment. Pricing is £6 for members of the society, £9 for all other students at the University of Warwick and £10 for external guests. Doors open 19:30 (7:30 pm) with the first film starting around 20:00 (8pm).

    [ Blade Trinity ]

    We kick off the night with Blade Trinity - the third and final blockbuster in the Blade Trilogy. Wesley Snipes returns as the half-vampire Blade to face his most deadly enemy yet, whilst trying to avoid the unwanted attention of the FBI. Luckily for him, he gets some help this time around in the form of the Nightstalkers, a group of fellow vampire slayers, including the iPod-toting Jessica Biel. With a host of characters both new and returning, this big budget action extravaganza contains some incredible action, unexpected plot twists and more than its fair share of laughs.

    [ Almost Famous ]

    Following this, the second film is director Cameron Crowe's semi-autobiographical comedy, Almost Famous. William Miller is just a 15 year old boy but that doesn't stop him getting hired by Rolling Stone magazine to tour with and write about Stillwater, a rock band based loosely on the bands Crowe worked with himself. This humorous drama follows William as he is forced to confront rockers, groupies and everything else that it entails. It is quite simply the embodiment of everything rock and roll.

    [ Cube ]

    The third film, Cube, is a cult classic with one of the most imaginative concepts in movie history. When seven complete strangers awaken to find themselves trapped inside a giant cube, they must utilise all of their skills to in an effort to escape their prison and the many deadly traps that lurk inside. What follows is an intelligent tale of suspense, paranoia and suspicion, as they and you never know quite what to expect next. You will not be falling asleep during this one.

    [ Mystery Film ]

    The fourth film will be our anticipated Mystery Film. Over the years the WSC AllNighter has had a wide variety of different and exciting mystery films, including E.T. 20th Anniversary, Plunkett & Macleane, Kiss of the Dragon, Thirteen Days and not forgetting the remarkable House of Flying Daggers! Over the years the Films and Admin Officers have used every possible technique to secure a fantastic AllNighter film for you, and this time is no exception!

    [ A Bug's Life ]

    For those who have made it this far, sit back and enjoy the penultimate film of the night: Pixar's animated treat, A Bug's Life. Let misfit-ant Flik take you on a rollercoaster ride of a journey to recruit brave and noble warriors to save his colony from an invasion of deadly grasshoppers. However when those whom he recruits turn out to be something different altogether, the fate of the colony itself is left hanging in the balance. From the people who brought you The Incredibles, Monster's Inc and Toy Story, expect witty dialog, great characters and animation that will leave you breathless.

    For the final film of the night - and give yourself a pat on the back for making it this far - WSC present one of the greatest movies of all time, Quentin Tarantino's superb second picture, Pulp Fiction. The script is a work of art, intertwining multiple plotlines, punctured by some absolutely chilling twists, with a hefty dose of his trademark dialogue and black humour, which together with brilliant performances from an A-list cast (Travolta, Jackson, Thurman, Willis, etc) and truly innovative direction, make this a film that promises to keep you awake right until the morning.

    The atmosphere in L3 is something special - you have to be there to experience it! For the latest All Nighter news and detailed information visit the All Nighter page.

    External guests allowed with any Warwick student or member of staff (old)

    A ticket

    WSC has decided that from now on any member of the University will be allowed to bring one external guest into a screening for a rate of £3.80 for the external guest. Previously only WSC members were permitted to bring in external guests which we felt caused unecessary confusion and was not needed and so our ticketing policy is being updated to reflect this. A WSC member ticket with an external guest ticket will be £1.80+£3.80=£5.60 and a non-member ticket with an external guest ticket will be £2.80+£3.80=£6.60.

    Want Free Films For Yourself And A Guest? Get Involved! (old)

    Yes, that's right! Get involved with Warwick Student Cinema and you and a guest can come to as many of our standard screenings as you want for free, whilst you continue to be involved.

    'What's the catch then?' There is obviously a minimum commitment required but it isn't much: a review every term or stewarding twice in every three week period for example. Beyond that, there are plenty of additional opportunities available if you're interested but it is really up to you.

    'What can I do then?' Well, that's entirely up to you but we like to think there is something for everyone, be it stewarding films, training as a projectionist, helping to design our new website or writing a review of one of next term's films to be included in our programming booklet. Have a browse around the Get Involved section of our website, send us an email at info@filmsoc.warwick.ac.uk or just say hello to one of the front of house staff before or after a screening to find out more about the different roles.

    'Why should I do it? Persuade me!' The simple answer is that we need you. The society cannot function without the volunteers who help keep everything running smoothly, so the rest of our members can come and see the film in the knowledge that they will have a great time.

    'But, what's in it for me?' Aside from the free films, you will be part of a society that will help develop your transferable skills as well as increasing your attractiveness to employers. And that's not forgetting our regular socials.

    'So, what do I do next?' Your best bet is send an email to info@filmsoc.warwick.ac.uk or just say hello before a screening and we'll tell you how best to proceed from there.

    Spring Term Schedule (old)

    Hello everyone, the Spring Term schedule is finally confirmed. As you probably know, the schedule has been through various changes, so hopefully this is one that everyone is happy with. With blockbusters like The Bourne Supremacy and The Incredibles, documentaries like The Corporation and Super Size Me, older favourites like The Hunt For Red October and Pleasantville, arthouse films such as Garden State and Coffee And Cigarettes, foreign language films such as The Return and House Of Flying Daggers, there's bound to be a film that you'd like to watch next term.

    Other things to look out for: films in association with One World Week such as Run Lola Run and Hero; 15 (a semi-documentary about Singaporean gangster youths, in association with the Singaporean Soc); a Romantic Week of films in conjunction with Valentine's starting with Wimbledon and ending with Jeux D'Enfants; and A Beautiful Mind (in association with the Economics Summit, an event in which the great John Nash himself will come to Warwick to give a talk).

    In short, next term is going to be mighty exciting.

    Be sure to check out the full scedule in advance by clicking here.

    AllNighter Success (old)

    The AllNighter (Friday, Wk 6) was, and I'm sure everyone agrees, a complete success. It was a sell-out and the atmosphere was fantastic. A big THANK YOU to everyone who worked throughout the night, and of course, to all the people who attended. And well done to those who made it to the end.

    The mystery film was, in fact, a mystery preview - 'House of Flying Daggers', not released until the 24th of December. Follow this link to The Allnighter to see the rest of the films.

    One of the events during the intervals was a film quiz. Congratulations to Lauren Hassett, Jason Thomas, Laura Magee, Shong Way Vern and Gareth Temlett, who each win a DVD and poster. Come along before the start of any film this week to claim your prizes. The questions and answers will be in the weekly e-mail (note - the overall answer we were looking for was 2705).

    I hope everyone had as much fun as we did, and I hope to see you at the AllNighter next term. If you think of films that would work well at the next AllNighter, why not suggest them on the website.

    Passion Of The Christ - Important Information (old)

    Dear Members,

    You may be aware that this Sunday Warwick Student Cinema (WSC) will be screening two showings of Mel Gibsons' 'Passion Of The Christ'. (19.30, 22.30) Since the release, much controversy has surrounded this film; being labelled as anti-semitic and inciting bad feelings between religious communities.

    We would like to clarify WSC's neutral position towards this and all films. WSC, along with the Union, believe strongly in non-censorship and allowing viewers to make their own minds up on the content of a film. WSC believes it an integral part of an independent cinema to show films for their cinematic value and allow the viewers to judge the content. We would hope all who view it to do so with a critical mind and not just be a passive viewer. Censorship would destroy the nature of our cinema; we would no more ban this film than we would ban 'American History X' or 'Schindler's List'.

    There will be discussion groups arranged later in the week by religious societies. Information will be available outside L3 before and after the screenings. There will also be a neutral speaker to introduce the film. If you would like more information about WSC's stance on non-censorship or would like to discuss anything else related to the cinema please feel free to contact me at:

    Improvements Over The Summer (old)

    [ screen installation ]

    WSC are currently replacing the screen and the masking (the black curtains which shape the picture) in L3. Once complete, this should provide our audience with an even better viewing experience than before, as well as relieving us from the frequent maintenance which was becoming necessary on the ageing equipment.

    Also underway - acoustic paneling being installed by the University in collaboration with Warwick Student Cinema will provide improved audio clarity as well as better positioning of speech and the special effects which immerse the audience in the film. Pictures of the installation work can be found in the gallery.

    Watch this space for further details, and don't forget to submit your suggestions for films you want to see at the Autumn AllNighter...

    Proposed changes to ticketing policy for 2004/2005 academic year (old)

    A ticket

    Following an in-depth review of the WSC ticketing and membership policy, there are a number of proposed changes for the 2004-2005 academic year. These changes reflect the desire of the WSC exec to open up access to screenings and ensure a transparent and simple ticketing policy. Once the new policy is agreed by the Union then it shall come into effect for the new academic year.

    Until the exact details are confirmed WSC always appreciates feedback with your comments and suggestions.

    A summary of the proposed changes is:

    • In order to comply with our terms of license, the "standard" WSC membership base will consist of all members of the University of Warwick (students and staff).
    • The society will provide "society" membership at a rate of £2.50 for the year which will allow reduced entry price, greater promotion options and the ability to get involved with the society. Society membership of WSC will require membership of the Students' Union Societies Federation.
    • With the society being more easily accessible to all students on campus the ticket prices will be: £1.80 to WSC society members and £2.80 to standard university staff/student members.  Only WSC society members will be permitted to buy 5-film passes for £7.00, and they will be permitted one external guest per showing at £3.80.

    Warwick Student Cinema will be showing a free preview of The Girl Next Door on Tuesday 9th March in association with 'Get it 1st'.

    Staring Emile Hirsch, Elisha Cuthbert, Timothy Olyphant and James Remar.

    Synopsis:
    Eighteen-year-old Matthew Kidman (Emile Hirsch) is a straight-arrow over-achiever who has never really lived life, until he falls for his new neighbour, the beautiful and seemingly innocent Danielle (Elisha Cuthbert).
    When Matthew discovers this perfect "girl next door" is a one-time porn star, his sheltered existence begins to spin out of control. Ultimately, Danielle helps Matthew emerge from his shell and discover that sometimes you have to risk everything for the person you love -- as he helps her rediscover her innocence.

    'Get it 1st', the promotion running on packs of Mars, Snickers, Maltesers, Twix, Bounty and Skittles, has teamed up with Twentieth Century Fox to give YOU the chance to see The Girl Next Door. Don't miss this free and exclusive screening of this hilarious new comedy BEFORE it goes on general release! And if this isn't incentive enough, there will be plenty of 'Get it 1st' chocolates for everyone on the night of the screening, and lots of prizes to win too! Look out for the 'Get it 1st' crews on campus from 23 February who will be handing out invitations...

    Slow ticket selling (old)

    WSC would like to apologise for the slowness of the ticket selling operation before shows which has become especially aggrevated during the free 3-hole promotion period.

    We would like to assure members that we are in the process of implementing a number of improvements that should improve the speed with which we can serve everyone. We will endeavour to not start the feature until everyone has been let in, however it is not in our interests to repeatedly delay the start and so ask people to make sure they turn up promptly.

    New Website! (old)

    Welcome to the new Warwick Student Cinema website. Over the next few weeks more content will be added and problems resolved so that it's 100% working for the beginning of the Spring Term 2002!

    Please note that an 'X' by a link means it probably won't work yet - in the meantime, the old website is still available for additional functionality until this new site works properly.

    If you have any comments, please email me, the Webmaster, and I'll try and sort it out!

    Press Release re: Summer 2001 Schedule (old)

    Dear Members,

    As many of you are aware, our published schedule ends on the Friday of Week 5, with the critically acclaimed Wonder Boys. This is necessary as the University is shutting L3 for extensive building work. Since being informed that L3 was to close, WSC has worked hard to find an alternative venue for the last 5 weeks of term, deciding to host two films a week elsewhere on campus. Despite our best efforts our plans have had to change and we can no longer show any films after Week 5 due to unforeseen obstacles in obtaining an alternative venue. We are sorry for any disappointment that this may cause; we are certainly disappointed that we are unable to bring you a full term's program.

    We would like to take this opportunity to thank you, our members, for your continued support and wish you all the best of luck in your exams.
