Cigarette Burns Presents Pieces @ The Rio

On 21st April 2012, come witness a special experiment in disaster – PIECES at the Rio Cinema…

Cigarette Buren Presents Pieces @ The RioBilled with the tagline “It’s exactly what you think it is”, this may be the most flagrant example of false advertising since “The Neverending Story”.

Ostensibly a slasher flick, PIECES is in fact a huge, cheesy slice of WTF – a parade of baffling non-sequiturs that will confuse and amuse you in equal measure.

Despite a mind-boggling degree of technical ineptitude and acting that would make Tommy Wiseau cringe, PIECES is incredible fun and has charm to spare: this rare 35mm screening is not to be missed for any fan of the weird and the wonderful.

What you will witness is truly unbelievable – for a sneak peek of what’s in store, check out the exclusive Cigarette Burns trailer below:

PIECES is a perfect film for a Cigarette Burns night at the Rio – experienced with a midnight audience, this could be the most fun you’ll have in a cinema all year.

Also Psychotronic will be on hand with loads of DVDs and related goodies for your perusal and purchase, and we’ll have DJ’s spinning tunes before and after the movie in the Rio bar.

A bar stock full of £2.50 Tenafly Viper made with Kraken Rum will remain open throughout the film and after. Tickets are £8.

The film starts around 23.30, with the bar staying open throughout the film until 2.30AM. The Rio has great transport links and is easy to get to:


67, 76/N76, 149 (24-hr), 243 (24-hr), & 488 stop right outside the Rio


The Rio is 5 minutes from both Dalston Junction and Dalston Kingsland stations (both London Overground)

See you there!

We’ll also be showing Dan O’Bannon’s zombie classic RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD at the Rio Cinema on the 19th May, followed by an exclusive preview of Ti West’s (HOUSE OF THE DEVIL) acclaimed new horror THE INNKEEPERS, at the Prince Charles Cinema on May 23rd – be sure to join us then too!

Over the past year we’ve enjoyed highly successful screenings of Lizard in A Woman’s Skin, Gothic, Profondo Rosso, Robocop, Street Trash, Daughters of Darkness, MS. 45, Who can Kill a Child?, the Female Convict Scorpion trilogy, Videodrome, The
