Hannibal: Eat The Rude at Electric Cinema, 10th June

Hannibal Stag Head
Horror programmers Shock & Gore and acclaimed food artist Annabel de Vetten team up this June for a one-of-a-kind event inspired by the twisted Sky Living series Hannibal.

Marking the launch of the third series of Hannibal this June the event will feature a screening of the very first two episodes of the first season of Hannibal (episodes Apéritif and Amuse-Bouche), accompanied by a “cornucopia of twisted culinary delights” from acclaimed food artist Annabel de Vetten.

Inspired by the perverse imagery of Bryan Fuller’s critically acclaimed series, audience members will be given the chance to pick and choose from a grand banquet of edible treats in the shape of stag antlers, raven feathers and other unlikely foodstuffs, some served on edible taxidermy.

Hannibal: Eat The Rude takes place on Wednesday 10th June at 8pm and tickets are priced between £19.50 and £24.90.

Tickets are available here.

Russian standard vodka film festival competition

The Electric Cinema has teamed up with Empire magazine and Russian Standard Vodka to bring classic films to their screens, but with a twist of vodka. The Electric will be hosting the film festival w/c 4th October. Voting has been taking place to find out which films should be shown and the top five so far are: It’s a Wonderful Life, The Usual Suspects, Shawshank Redemption, Four Weddings and a Funeral and the classic The Godfather. There are many other films to vote for so you can make your very own movie night in the retro surroundings of The Electric.

The film festival will be reintroducing cinema experiences from yester-year including an intermission half way through the film. Various vodka cocktails will be available throughout the evenings for you to sip during the film.

Russian Standard have had success with previous events such as gigs with The Noisettes and hope to recreate the same success with their own film festival.
Russian Standard Vodka is making people an offer they can’t refuse by inviting those that have brought a bottle to go to their website and register their details for a chance to win tickets to the film festival.
