Film, and then some

DVDBANG

Monday 24th March, 2014

Custard Factory - Lakeside | 08:00

From South Korea's city streets, DVDBANG is a new format for the UK. Half rental shop, half cinema, DVD-bangs are an icon of Korean entertainment culture. In 24 hour districts, the streets hum with neon signs for spaces to pass cold days and nights with friends or strangers, to bond over a shot of soju, instant noodles and a film.

From South Korea's city streets, DVDBANG is a new format for the UK. Half rental shop, half cinema, DVD-bangs are an icon of Korean entertainment culture. In 24 hour districts, the streets hum with neon signs for spaces to pass cold days and nights with friends or strangers, to bond over a shot of soju, instant noodles and a film.

Designed by a London-based collective of ex-expats, designers and builders, DVDBANG is a not-for-profit cinema installation screening South Korea's finest and wildest imports in a reimagined 24hr private movie room. 8ft HD projection for a maximum of 8 people at a time, DVDBANG is Flatpack's smallest cinema, screening what you want, when you want. In a glowing foyer, choose from more than 30 South Korean titles or a programme of Korean shorts from film and arts collective Brain Wash, try local snacks and drinks, and get comfy amongst the neon.

Featuring: revenge, comedy, romance, chocolate sticks, beer, dried squid, barley tea, kimchi, sofas, blackout, freebies, dawn discounts and surprise screenings in a cinema like no other.

The screening room is a privately booked space and films range from U to 18. All ages welcome but ID may be required for certain film choices. DVDBANG is supported by the BFI. With special thanks to Terracotta, Third Window and The Lost Picture Show. Image by Sheryll Donerson.
