We've talked before about the so-called "black and chrome" version of Mad Max: Fury Road, but for those unfamilar, here's a quick primer.
George Miller, when he was editing Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior in 1981, made a black-and-white edit of the film for scoring music to. Miller remarked that he actually preferred that version of the film to the one that was released and, had Warner Bros. not insisted otherwise, he would have released Mad Max: Fury Road in black and white.
The "black and chrome" version became something of a fable among fans of Mad Max, and Miller promised that it would make its way onto the home release of the film. While that's all well and good, the film was meant to be seen in a darkened cinema with a proper sound system.
That's where the Lighthouse Cinema comes in. On Bank Holiday Sunday, April 30th at 8.30PM, the black and chrome version of Mad Max: Fury Road will be screened for the first time in an Irish cinema.
Tickets are on sale now for €10.00 and the event is expected to sell out - so get on it if you want to see the version of Mad Max: Fury Road that George Miller wanted audiences to see.
