So bad it’s good…

Nicko and Joe's Bad Film Club
returns by popular demand to Barbican Film with an extraordinary evening of interactive cinema combining comedy, bad film and cult comedian Trevor Lock.

Xanadu (PG)

The Music, The Film, A Place Where Dreams Come True!

Inspiring the creation of the Golden Raspberry Awards and subsequently skating off with an embarrassment of Razzies in 1981, including worst director, worst actor (Michael Beck) and worst actress (Olivia Newton-John).

Greenwald’s roller-disco dancefest disaster destroyed Newton-John’s solo career - she’d turned down a career-making leading role in Bad Film Club fave Can’t Stop The Music for it, and was the last film featuring Gene Kelly, who chose to appear because the film was shot close to his family home.

US 1980 Dir Robert Greenwald 93min.

'Way along the road to weird comedy… a show like no other. Trevor Lock with his own brand of self-indulgent humour makes you laugh, although the reason usually escapes you.' - **** The Scotsman

'Utterly improbable, absolutely entertaining' - The Independent (on Trevor Lock)
