Time Out says

Just how bad are these bad movies? Lido Cinemas is going to find out

You can keep your Oscars, your Golden Globes, your worthy French films. Give us a terrible movie that we can laugh at any day. 

And that's exactly what Lido Cinemas is doing, with a monthly screening of notoriously terrible movies on the first Friday of the month. Even better, the event is being hosted by Zachary Ruane, of side-splitting comedy troupe Aunty Donna. 

What are these films that are so bad they're good? They include (of course) The Room, the deeply bizarre Tommy Wiseau cult classic about... well, we're not really sure, but it's fantastically terrible. Also on the bill: Batman and Robin (featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Uma Thurman and George Clooney's rubber nipples); Troll 2 (which was clearly meant to be called 'Goblin' but was shoehorned into becoming a sequel for a movie it has nothing to do with); Birdemic (the "CGI" – and we use the term loosely – appears to have been done on MS Paint); and Road House (starring Patrick Swayze, and even though it has 37 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes, it's clearly a mistake in this list. Patrick. Swayze.).

They are a guaranteed good time (well, a good bad time, you know what we mean). We recommend you take advantage of Lido's alcohol licence and get ready for the best worst movies.
