Flim Nite’s Titanic at 3MT
Flim Nite is one of the city’s best spoken word night’s, taking place in the Affleck’s Palace microtheatre 3MT. The twist of Flim Nite is that each event is based around a particular film, with all the contributing performers putting their own spin on a popular film. This time the Oscar-hungry Titanic gets the Flim treatment. Get down and see what they make of this classic slice of 90s cinema.
