The Duke is homeless! Yes sadly we found out today that our beloved home, The Cross Kings, is closing next Friday. Which puts us without a venue, we're currently looking for a new place, but if anyone knows of a decent pub, club, room, anywhere in central'ish London do let us know! Got to be FREE as well...

Hi everyone, we have a new venue! Still in Kings Cross we're now at the Kings Cross Soical Club and on Tuesday nights. Full details below, along with all the info about our next night!

The Duke Mitchell Film Club presents:

80s Action Night

TUESDAY 27th July 2010

Doors Open 7PM - Films Start 8PM

Some important housekeeping:- The Duke has moved - our new home for the time being is:

The King's Cross Social Club

The address is:

2 Brittannia Street
Kings Cross
WC1X 9JE

Google Maps: http://bit.ly/du0E3l

Our new venue is less than 5 minutes away from Kings Cross station and is in the shadow of the legendary Scala Cinema!

Now on with our planned programme:

As the August release date of the brilliant-looking ‘The Expendables’ draws near, The Duke dedicates July to celebrate the brilliance of 80’s action films.

The over-the-top excesses of the decade are brought to life in the brilliant but sadly forgotten Gary Busey classic ‘EYE OF THE TIGER’ Trust us when we say that this film sums up 80’s perfectly and is one crazy throwback to the days when action films knew how to push all the right buttons! Plus it really does feature that tune!

Other than Gary Busey and his vendetta, The Duke will also feature a brilliant quiz testing your knowledge of all things 80’s action, a hair-raising soundtrack featuring the entire raise your fists anthems of the genre, an amazing poster galley as well as an amazing short.

So come on down to The Duke’s new home on TUESDAY 27th July 2010 and experience a night like no other!

FREE ENTRY! FREE ENTRY! FREE ENTRY! FREE ENTRY! FREE ENTRY! FREE ENTRY!

Sounds like a night of cheesy fun, and now it's on Tuesday's (my day off work. Isn't fate a beautiful thing). I'll be there. Looking forward to meeting some fellow festers there, but be gentle it will be my first time.
Don't cry, it's such a waste of good suffering

It’s August and August can only mean one thing in Duke-land: The Birthday Party!

This year, The Duke Mitchell Film Club 3rd Birthday Party guarantees you to take you the edge...and beyond:

We’ll be presenting you with not one but two editions of our mind-blowing trailers trash, pit Alex and Evrim against each in mortal combat, unleash a quiz with more deviant questions than ever before with prizes to match, our surprising annual awards ceremony as well as a highly secret but simply astounding ‘How To’ montage which may end up teaching you a thing or two about crime! Of course all our usual slots of music, still and the rest of the thrills will be there to make this evening as fun and off-beat as possible.

So if you think you’ve seen it all, done it all and celebrated it all – make sure you make your way down to The Duke on the 24th August because this is going to be one hip-swinging, rule-book tearing, go-go dancing, White-Russian drinking, martini-loving, flick blade threatening birthday party you will never forget!

Doors open at 7.00 p.m. – the FUN starts at 8.00. Night ends at 11PM

FREE - FREE- FREE - FREE - FREE -FREE - FREE - FREE -FREE - FREE - FREE
