Summer holidays are here (or a nearing) and….well, we’re spending it indoors. Bloody rain. But I guess there’s a silver lining: Gate Cinema is offering us broke students shelter and a free movie!
Electrick Children follows the tale of mormon virgin Rachel who finds herself pregnant after listening to a forbidden tape recording of The Nerves’ Hanging On the Telephone. Rachel flees to Las Vegas after she is unable to confront the shame and forced marriage and goes off on a search to find the man behind the song.
To get yourself a free ticket as well as an E4 Slacker’s Card pop down to Gate Cinema at any time with a NUS card or college/university ID. With your new clubcard, you can visit any Picturehouse cinema to watch the month’s free feature films – in this case, it is Electrick Children. You would have to be…well, not a student to miss it. That or you have bottomless funds. Or a job.
For more information and additional viewing times and dates of Electrick Children, visit the Gate Cinema website.
The Slacker’s Club is a collaborative scheme by E4 & Picturehouse Cinemas to showcase the latest independent/ alternative film.
