Presented by FLIM NITE

What would Matilda look like chewed up and spat out by theatremakers, writers, comedians and musicians?

Watch as our acts distort a Danny DeVito-directed fantasy comedy into something ridiculous, beautiful or unrecognisable for your viewing pleasure. We have entrusted each performer with a chunk of the film to re-enact, riff around, mash up or explode. There’s no way of telling what will happen.

We’ve baked Matilda into a large chocolate cake alongside some of our favourite performance artists. Come and have a taste of the glorious results!

“Trust us, it’s unlike any other night around!” – The Skinny

“With all the ramshackle pop-anarchism of Never Mind The Buzzcocks and the warmth, variety and bonhomie of a fringe arts night, FLIM NITE is going from strength to strength and is not to be missed.” – NARC

“If you’ve never been to FLIM NITE, GO!” – Manchester Wire
