20th Century Cube Presents King Of Kong: A Fistful Of Quarters

(Seth Gordon / USA / 2007 / 79 minutes / cert PG)
Set in the hermetic world of competitive retro gaming, this American documentary is quickly gaining modern classic status. It has it all: a good guy, a bad guy, a whole lot of Donkey Kong and a climax that puts most Hollywood fiction to shame. Essential viewing for the uninitiated and, as anyone who's already seen it will testify, always worth another watch.
As it's the opening night of the Cube after summer recess, expect extra entertainments to be laid on, including retro gaming opportunities and music and, uh... dancing? Yes. By God, there'll be dancing.
