FLIM NITE presents The Matrix (Sheffield)
06/04/2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
What would ‘The Matrix’ (1999) look like chewed up and spat out by comedians, theatremakers, writers and musicians?
We’ve stuck action sci-fi Wachowskis film ‘The Matrix’ and our artists into a simulation of a simulation of a simulation to try and find their way out. Come and see the results of their philosophical and literal struggle!
Watch as our acts distort a dystopian simulated reality film into something silly, beautiful or unrecognisable for your viewing pleasure. We have entrusted each one of them with a chunk of the film to re-enact, riff around, mash up or explode. There’s no way of telling what will happen.
Cult hit FLIM NITE comes to Sheffield for the second time to spread its unique brand of mischief after three years of sowing highly-acclaimed chaos in Manchester.
We will not be showing a movie. We will be making a FLIM.

“The group take a hammer to well-known films and smash them into something completely different – think a smorgasbord of musical interludes, a dab of poetry and an added bit of standup comedy. Trust us, it’s unlike any other night around!” – The Skinny
