Capital Celluloid - Day 88: Wednesday Mar 30, 2011

Early April Fool's Night: The Duke Mitchell Film Club, King's Cross Social Club,
2 Britannia Street, London, WC1X 7pm

You have probably heard about The Room, the car-crash of a movie that sells out each month at the Prince Charles Cinema. The Duke Mitchell Film Club popularised that film among London's cinema cognoscenti. The news is they have found another - Ben and Arthur, the story of a recently married homosexual couple who face opposition from one of the partners' brothers, who plots to murder them after being ostracized by his church.

Evrim and Alex at the Duke Mitchell promise me this 2002 drama is worse than The Room. I have found these extracts on YouTube and you know what - they could be right. Here is the trailer.

You can see it this evening at the Duke Mitchell's early April Fool's night special, a compendium of the worst trailers, short films and music the Duke's crew could find in the last year. Doors open at 7pm with the film due to begin at 8pm. Here is the Duke Mitchell's Facebook page for more details.
