About the {{offerTypeLabel(offer)}}

The Bristol Bad Film Club are hosting a 12 hour ACTION B-MOVIE MARATHON packed full of explosions, fist fights, ninjas, Nazis and car chases!

Not just that, but the films star some of the greatest action stars of the 80s: Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Carl Weathers, Michael Dudikoff, Brandon Lee and the late, great Sir Roger Moore!

Supported by 88 Films and Arrow Video, GENREGEDDON: ACTION aims to be the first of many B-movie marathons, each one showcasing movies from a different genre each time.


- Is this the first Genre-geddon?

It's the first 12hr Genre-geddon, but on the 29 July, we're hosting Arnie-geddon: A Schwarzenegger Triple Bill celebrating the Austrian Oak’s 70th birthday. Tickets are available at www.getawriggleon.com/events/bristol

- Where will the events be held?

Currently, all planned events will be at The Winston Theatre – the state-of-the-art (and comfortable) theatre at Bristol University’s Student Union

- Why….?

Genre movie marathons are frequent occurrences in the United States, but not so much in the UK. We're aiming to change that.

Movie marathon events have always been fun for film fans and they happen all the time in America (B-Fest in Chicago, Butt Numb-A-Thon in Texas, Alamo Drafthouse’s numerous events like the yearly Nicholas Cage marathon Caged) – so why not in Bristol?

- Can I leave and come back during the 12hr marathon?

Absolutely. Your ticket allows to you and go any time you want over the 12hr period, but honestly - why would you want to?

- What films are being screened?

Bloodsport (1988), River of Death (1989 - sponsored by 88 Films), Megaforce (1982), North Sea Hijack (1979), Action Jackson (1988), Hired To Kill (1990 - sponsored by Arrow Films), Showdown In Little Tokyo (1991).

About Bristol Bad Film Club @ The Winston Theatre

Bristol Bad Film Club is where movie fans can behold some of the most unique and notorious films ever put to celluloid. Created by film fanatic Ti Singh, the club was formed in 2014 and has built up a cult-following - with tickets flying out the door. After all, in the words of Pauline Kael: “We all love good movies, but a true cinephile is someone who totally digs talking about the worst movies they’ve seen.”
