What would 'Die Hard' look like distorted by poets, comedians, and musicians?
With guests including Rosie Garland

FLIM NITE is a monthly performance event based at Three Minute Theatre in Manchester's Northern Quarter. At no point do we show the film in question!

Each of our performers has been given a chunk of 'Die Hard' to turn into something new. Come and watch as our acts transform an action-packed vest-wearing blockbuster into something unrecognisable for your viewing pleasure.

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

There are a limited number of open mic slots available! Email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for a slot. Remember it's flim as in FLIM and nite as in NITE. Got it? Slots are three minutes long and material must be 'Die Hard'-related.
