RAD Screenings are back with another alternative Valentine's Day double bill full of heartbreaking & heartwarming moments in equal measure!
This year we’re kicking off the evening in Seattle during the peak of the 90's Grunge era with Cameron Crowe’s SINGLES a film about six of Seattle's twenty-somethings, who live in the same apartment building and whose lives revolve around the city's ever-expanding music scene. The inter-related stories about each character's progress through the singles scene are intriguing, hilarious, and heartwarming. The soundtrack is a grunge fanatic's dream, with the likes of Soundgarden, Pearl Jam and Mudhoney; with cameos & performances from some of the most iconic figures in the music scene.
Second up is Kevin Smith’s first foray into slightly more mature themes; CHASING AMY! This Ben Affleck starrer follows a pair of comic book authors named Holden McNeil and Banky Edwards, who live in New Jersey and have been best friends for 20 years. They spend their time working in their studio, and in the evenings going out. But their friendship is about to be disputed for the first time in their life, when a lesbian woman named Alyssa Jones enters their life and Holden falls in love with her. Now Holden has to deal with Banky's jealousy along with Alyssa’s sexuality and feeling threatened by her expansive sexual history.
This Valentines Day invite your Jay or Silent Bob on the ultimate RAD date, featuring alternative romance movies plus the best cocktails, food and retro romantic vibes in Manchester!
