Sub-Cinema: Sorcerer @ DADA
Albeit one of the more overlooked works by William Friedkin, ‘Sorcerer’ won critical acclaim for the sound editing and the score by Tangerine Dream.
“A group of outcasts from different backgrounds/nationalities are forced by misfortune to work in a remote oil drilling operation in South America. When fire breaks out of control, four of the outcasts are given the opportunity to earn enough money to get out by transporting six crates of unstable dynamite through miles of jungle in two ancient trucks. Will they succeed and regain their honor and citizenship, or get blown up for their efforts?” (IMDb)
Free // Doors at 8pm, movie at 9pm // Dada // No. 115 Xingfu Lu, near Fahuazhen Lu (幸福路115号, 近法华镇路)
6 Degrees @ Zeal
Networking and charity event for professionals at Zeal, based on the “six degrees of separation theory”. What industry or professionals the event aims at remains in the dark for us, so we assume everybody is welcome. The door cover will go to Morning Tears charity for children. Drink specials till 8pm and canapées will help you to mix and mingle with the others. If you’re not tired after 10:30pm, you can continue with partying at the regular ladies night.
50RMB // 6pm // Zeal // 6/F, 22 Zhongshan Dong Er Lu, near Xin Yongan Lu (中山东二路22号
Merry Unbirthday @ Virgo
Celebrate your Merry Unbirthday in the tradition of Humpty Dumpty, that weird egg-shaped fuck from Wonderland. Applicable conditions: You’re not born on February 28, and you’re a lady. So what we have here is the usual ladies night in disguise, probably with some pieces of Unbirthday cake to round it up.
Free // 9:30pm // Virgo // Laomatou Bldg 11, 505 Zhongshan Nan Lu, near Fuxing Dong Lu (老码头, 中山南路505号11栋, 近复兴东路)
