Crispin Hellion Glover's Big Slide Show

Crispin Glover, known for creating many memorable and quirky characters onscreen, does not disappoint fans of his offbeat sensibilities and eccentric taste as a director and filmmaker. He has appeared in over 30 films, including River's Edge, Charlie's Angels, Back to the Future, Wild at Heart and Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.

‘Crispin Hellion Glover's Big Slide Show’ is a one-hour dramatic narration of his profusely illustrated books, performed before a screening of What is It?.

What is It? is part one of the IT trilogy and premiered at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival to critical acclaim. The film is a bewildering, unnerving, surreal, blackly comic film that tells the inner and outer struggles of a young man facing villains and demons on multiple planes.

The film will be followed by a Q&A and a book signing.

When: Tuesday 06 May, 8.00pm – c.12.00am.

Where: Tyneside Cinema (Electra), 10 Pilgrim Street, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, NE1 6QG.

Tickets: £18. Available from Box Office, by phone on 0845 217 9909 or online
