Mini-episode, part 5 of 9 'Popcorn'
To accompany the Buñuel season, Lorenzo has prepared some surrealist tapas.
This is a tiny taster of our Cinema-set sitcom "Fleapit" written by Abigail Dooley and Emma Edwards, featuring Spymonkey and directed by Chris Curtis.
The Scala is a failing art-house cinema, managed by pretentious film buff Kenneth Forbes. The cinema has recently been bought out by the cinema chain, Cinegiant, who have sent Deborah Reynolds, their Interim Transitional Co-ordinator, to implement changes.
The staff struggle to adapt their quirky world to Cinegiant's corporate vision. Film pastiches which are woven in to the narrative reflect the characters' fears, fantasies and failings. The cast (Spymonkey) play all the characters.
