We're on hiatus and going through a period of transition. We really enjoyed putting on the regular screenings at the Adelphi but they were financially unsustainable so had to knock them on the head. Working hard on new projects and should be exciting times ahead if everything comes to fruition...

I was back home in Scunthorpe last weekend, and I thought it had been hit by the zombie apocalypse.

But then I remembered they always look like that.

It's a bit difficult to tell with everyone's dull lifeless eyes around here. Human flesh, or just a kebab with chilli sauce?

Well, whatever you're doing, you've got to make use of those chairs, they were a sound investment!

We went and had a look around the venue. It's an amazing space and we'd love to get something on there but it would need to be the right thing (which is in the pipeline)...but everything needs to wait whilst we get what we're attempting finalised

We had some really good films on the go, with some top-draw artists...and we will release them as soon enough. Sorry that we've been quiet though...it will be worth it

They've done some really great events, the last one sounded like a bit of mess though. Would be great to do something like that

£3 a ticket is nice Rimmer ...but not really realistic in this day and age?

Putting 50 bums on seats which is hard nowadays = £150 ....a sustainable business? ...don't think so

It's the age old vanity V sanity argument , we can all fill our business's with punters if we cut out all the important things , like wanting to earn a living wage at the end of the week .

Looking forward to seeing what you have coming up. Let's show our American cousins what we're made of :twisted:
