Technical Information

The first thing you should know about Warwick Student Cinema is that we do not show DVDs, Blu-rays or any other home cinema format media to our audience. Only industry standard equipment is used; this means either showing either real film – both 35mm and 70mm – or DCI compliant digitally-projected movies.

Our society is lucky enough to have installed the first 4K RGB laser projector in Coventry and Warwickshire, in February 2020. Unlike traditional cinema projectors (both digital and film), its light source comprises red, green and blue laser modules instead of a xenon arc lamp. This cutting-edge illumination technology facilitates superior black levels as well as a wider colour gamut to provide the best picture possible. The 4K resolution provides a four-fold increase in picture detail compared to standard 2K systems.

Description

I'm going to break the first rule of David Fincher's 1999 cult classic Fight Club and talk about it.

The Narrator (Edward Norton) takes us through his life as a jaded insomniac who's looking for a little bit of adventure. He finds this adventure in Tyler Durden (Brad Pitt), a reckless soap manufacturer, and together they create an underground fight club for bored businessmen. Their fight club is just the beginning; the Narrator becomes surrounded by a cast of strange and dissolute people, who all look to him for direction. Soon, fight clubs begin popping up in other towns and members start to channel their anger together as a sort of revolution which spirals out of control.

David Fincher has a reputation for creating dark thrillers that can be sickly comical, and Fight Club is just that. With the combination of the striking cinematography, a powerful soundtrack and outstanding performances, Fight Club takes you right into the subconscious of the Narrator and his world. Much more than an action flick, it explores everything from consumerism and mentality to how to start a fight with a stranger. You'll meet the Narrator at a very strange time in his life and it's definitely worth taking the journey with him.
