Capital Celluloid - Day 249: Thursday September 8

The Flesh Eaters (Curtis, 1964): Roxy Bar and Screen, 7pm

This is part of the Scala Forever season, a programme of 111 films and events at 26 venues through to October 2 that will celebrate the wonderful Scala cinema at King's Cross which closed in 1993. Here is an article I wrote in the Guardian on the history of the cinema and the season and here are the details of all the movies and special events on offer, via the Scala Forever website.

The Duke Mitchell Film Club makes their Roxy debut with a tribute to the Scala cinema, playing the groundbreaking sci-fi horror B-movie, THE FLESH EATERS, one of the earliest gore movies ever filmed. Along with the Duke’s regular features including a special Scala-themed Trailer Trash, short films, a quiz and some great music. 

Here is a review from website

Here is the trailer.
