Regather Works Oddeon - Thursday 6th October - 7pm

The Regather Works Sheffield Oddeon showcases the best that terrible cinematic productions have to offer. It showcases the oddest creations to hit the big or small screen and celebrates their failures. This month the Oddeon will focus on the $65 million dollar flop, FoodFight! 

Regather works say "In December 2002, less than a year before the release of FoodFight! the hard drives containing all the production footage were stolen in such a large-scale act of industrial espionage that the US Secret Service were called into investigate. Nothing was recovered, and all assets had to be rebuild from scratch with no budget. 
Scrambling to stick to deadlines and cut all unnecessary costs, large swathes of the production were outsourced - often to companies with conflicting or false understanding of the film's direction and art style".

This film was never meant to see the light of day after the initial confusion but after it's purchase at action it saw commercial release in 2013. To grab tickets for this months oddity pop over to the Regather Works ticket page.
