1980s Comedy Double Bill: Caddyshack
Sunday 7 April, 6.00pm
We’ve definitely hit a hole in one with the opener of our 1980s comedy double-bill Caddyshack. Danny Noonan (Michael O’Keefe), a teen down on his luck, works as a caddy at the snob-infested Bushwood Country Club to raise money for his college education. In an attempt to gain votes for a college scholarship reserved for caddies, Noonan volunteers to caddy for a prominent and influential club member (Ted Knight). Meanwhile, Danny struggles to prepare for the high pressure Caddy Day golf tournament while absorbing New Age advice from wealthy golf guru Ty Webb (Chevy Chase).
You can book tickets for both Caddyshack and Airplane! for a bargain £8.

When the passengers and crew of a jet are incapacitated due to food poisoning, a rogue pilot with a drinking problem must cooperate with his ex-girlfriend turned stewardess to bring the plane to a safe landing.
Surely we can’t be serious with our 1980s comedy double-bill ticket offer? Well, we are serious…and don’t call us Shirley. You can book tickets for both Caddyshack and Airplane! for a bargain £8.

While wandering the English moors on vacation, college yanks David and Jack happen upon a quaint pub with a mysterious group of patrons who warn them not to leave the road when walking after dark.

The freshly deceased, and rapidly decomposing, Jack arrives soon after to deliver the grim news that, unless he commits suicide, David will become a werewolf when the moon is full.
