Iconic documentary and classic film
This week we reach the end of our classics season with the ultimate bodybuilding documentary PUMPING IRON with the psychological game play of Ken Weller as he steals the prize at the Mr Olympia from under the nose of Mike Katz. While also reflecting on the contrasting personalities of Arnold Schwarzenegger the arrogant, brash over confident titleholder looking for one last hoorah and the shy reserved Lou Ferrigno. You can’t help but get behind the quiet man this is a captivating watch whether you’re into the body aesthetic or into documentary film it’s a must. Followed by THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN what looks like a classic bit of 50’s sci-fi is bathed in political undertones with everything from environmental mismanagement to corporate competence. This week is defiantly one for the film fans with the usual free popcorn and rum.
