Capital Celluloid 2013 - Day 271: Sat Sep 28

Scalarama Closing Night - Kamikaze 1989 (Gremm, 1982): Gate, Notting Hill 9.45pm

You can keep up with the latest information and all the details of venue and time via the Scalarama website here.

Here is the Sacalarama introduction: As the Scalarama season draws to a close, it’s time for one last sojourn into the dark as we celebrate the 25th anniversary of MOVIEDROME: the BBC’s showcase for cult films that introduced a generation of late-night telly addicts to a world of savage and serene cinema. 

Originally presented by Alex Cox and then by Mark Cousins, MOVIEDROME has been resuscitated by filmmakers Shezad Dawood and Ben Rivers, who tonight will unleash a mindbending programme of dystopian proportions. But this is not the end… The campaign to bring back MOVIEDROME to our screens begins here!

Above (and here) is the first episode of the original Moviedrome on BBC2 as Alex Cox introduces The Wicker Man.
