Can you form the ultimate film quiz team? Or do you already have one? If so: attention please. On October 16th New Empress Magazine will be holding its first ever event in association with Double Crossed Films and Shortwave Cinema in Bermondsey, London. Together we’re bringing you the geekiest film quiz event in the world, possibly the universe actually, and it’s held in one of the city’s coolest cinemas. The quiz itself will be a game of two halves involving trivia from the silent era onwards, picture rounds and, for the dramatically inclined, scene reenactments from film classics. There’ll be fabulous film prizes to be won and the night will be hosted by our hilarious Comedy Central writer and compere: Adrian Mackinder.
Of course, it wouldn’t seem right to lure you into a cinema without showing you a film or two. Consequently the first 50 people to book their tickets will receive a free screening, prior to the quiz, courtesy of the Empress. Double Crossed Films have put together a unique programme of short films for your viewing pleasure from some of the best budding producers in the biz. The full programme will be announced shortly but for now, we’re allowed to tell you, that the beautifully shot Girl in Motion will kick off all the film fun.
Tickets for the quiz are limited to 100 places and as it costs a paltry £3 per person we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
