"Paranoid? I'm not paranoid. All my fears are real.”

Bill has always felt like he didn’t fit in. Is his family part of some kind of elite secret society? Or is it something entirely more sinister?

The rich have always sucked off the poor, and it was never taken more literally than in the hilarious and slimy '80s capitalist satire Society. This is not a film for the fainthearted. From the producer of Reanimator, and with special effects from Screaming Mad George, Society is a film experience you will never forget.

With introduction from film historian, Dr Adrian Smith

About The Cult Film Club  EXTREME

The brainchild of film historian Dr Adrian Smith, The Cult Film Club was established in Eastbourne in 2018 following a screening of Evil Dead II at the Royal Hippodrome Theatre. A season of highly entertaining films followed, including such classics as The Warriors, The Man With Two Brains and Enter the Dragon before the club relocated to the Towner Cinema where fans gathered for The Thing, Labyrinth, Heathers and The Dead, before lockdown intervened.

This new EXTREME version of the club will see us bringing a mix of films to the Electric Palace that are shocking, controversial, or just extremely silly. With an emphasis on crowd-pleasing, a good time is guaranteed for all brave enough to join us.
