FLIM NITE presents Con air

Please note this is an 18+ event

What would ‘Con Air’ look like chewed up and spat out by comedians, theatremakers, writers and musicians?

We’ve stuck our artists on a high security prison airplane with some of America’s most dangerous criminals and tasked them with toughing out the ride, then performing a creative response about their experience. Come and see the glorious results!

Watch as our acts distort a Nicolas Cage-starring action crime film into something ridiculous, beautiful or unrecognisable for your viewing pleasure. We have entrusted each one of them with a chunk of the film to re-enact, riff around, mash up or explode. There’s no way of telling what will happen!

FLIM NITE is a monthly experimental performance night based in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. We were founded at the legendary Three Minute Theatre and will move to the upstairs of Gullivers for our November show!

We will not be showing a movie. We will be making a FLIM.

***Please note that Gullivers is not wheelchair-accessible and is up a fairly steep flight of stairs. We are looking into other options for future shows. Please message us with suggestions or if you have any queries!***


There are THREE open mic slots available! Email us at flimnitemanchester@gmail.com for a slot. Slots are three minutes long and material must be ‘Con Air’-related. Remember it’s flim as in FLIM and nite as in NITE. Got it?

“The group take a hammer to well-known films and smash them into something completely different – think a smorgasbord of musical interludes, a dab of poetry and an added bit of standup comedy. Trust us, it’s unlike any other night around!” – The Skinny

“With all the ramshackle pop-anarchism of Never Mind The Buzzcocks and the warmth, variety and bonhomie of a fringe arts night, FLIM NITE is going from strength to strength and is not to be missed.” – NARC

“Fast becoming one of the city’s best events. If you’ve never been to FLIM NITE, GO!” – Manchester Wire
