Exclusive Film Premiere - Convenience

Thu 24 September, 5:00pm

Venue: Cope Auditorium


One night. Two men. Three hostages. No crisps.

With 12 hours left until clocking off time and desperately bored, Levi is sitting and chewing gum in a quiet petrol station convenience store when Ajay and Shaan burst in to conduct a robbery. Two hapless friends who have inadvertently go themselves into debt with Russian gangsters, the pair take the staff hostage only to discover that the safe won't open until 6am. To avoid anyone raising the alarm, the would-be robbers are forced to work the night shift until they can get their hands on the money, all the time dealing with the feisty Levi and a host of bizarre customers including a suicidal businessman and a dwarf cowboy. Can they escape arrest by police and violent retribution by the Russians?

Described as Clerks meets A Dog Day Afternoon, this eagerly anticipated independent British film won a BAFTA Cymru for 'Best Breakthrough' and boasts an impressive cast including Verne Troyer (Austin Powers), Anthony Head (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), BAFTA Winner Vicky McClure (Line of Duty, This is England), BAFTA Nominee Adeel Akhtar (Four Lions, Utopia, Pan), and Bafta Breakthrough Brit Ray Panthaki (Ali G, 28 Days Later, Kidulthood).
