MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY at The Cube Microplex Sat 4 May 2019 from 2pm to 11pm


Arcadia, Dead Horse Disco, Slag Heap, Hawksmoor, Don Mandarin, Blakk Metal, DJs Ian Green and Fat Paul and exhibition from Occult Bristol

The universal distress call collides head on with this eclectic celebration of May Day… where a fine bunch of live musical artists, wild Acid Folk DJ's, the awesome Arcadia feature film and art happenings are brewed with archaic and improvised May Day ritualistic practises to concoct a rich and fertile place for new growth and THINGS.

We welcome in summer and explore all aspects of this important day in our annual calendar from the pagan to the political, from punk to folk, from the ordinary to the extraordinary. Climaxing with Paul Wright's mind blowing ARCADIA film which explores British folk customs and the eccentricities of the British people as they mark the passing of the year.

Also being served to the hungry is a fine selection of C/R/A/P/…. (cheese, rolls and pickle) to compliment the Cube's fine selection of tea's, ales, wines and soft brews….

Bristol has strong sense of social responsibility. From the protests rallied against Tesco, to the community boosting Peoples Republic of Stokes Croft. The Cube cinema is another excellent example. In 1998 a group of Artists who at the time ran “underground mobile cinema events” took it over and turned it into what it is today. It stands equally as both a cinema and an arts venue. Inside it has a raised stage and tiered seating, in the old theatre style, which can hold just over 100 people.

Driven by a strong set of ethics it refuses to serve Nescafe and even goes as far as to make its own brand of cola called (funnily enough) Cube Cola.

The cinematic screenings it puts on are always more interesting than what will be on at your local Odeon and it shows a lot of world cinema which we may never come across without it. The same goes for the live music events. The gigs are varied and include art and dance performances, live concerts, discussions and theatre.

Please note, The Cube Microplex is an independent cinema and requires membership to attend events, this will cost you just one pound on your first visit and lasts a life time.
