In the wake of Recoil’s recent premiere at the famous Tuschinski theatre, which proved to be such a special evening, we can now tell you about two further screenings planned for early 2013 in Amsterdam. ‘A STRANGE HOUR IN BUDAPEST‘ will be presented twice at the prestigious and stylish Melkweg Cinema who focus on music films. The Recoil HD concert movie will be shown on Saturday February 2nd and then again the following Saturday, February 9th.

Anybody who came along to Tuschinski can re-live the concert once more in this state-of-the-art facility at Melkweg, with full 5.1 surround sound. The cinema features the latest in digital projection and supports DTS-HD MA audio. So If you missed the last event, here are two perfect opportunities to put that right! Tickets are only €8 so get along on either of those February weekends to catch a screening.

These events accompany Recoil’s Blu-ray release of the film directed by Attila Herkó. We hope to have some deluxe Blu-rays on sale at the cinema – this could be the last chance to grab this exclusive format as they are nearly all gone now.

Founded in 1970, the Melkweg is one of the most well-known cultural centres within the Netherlands, and is unique for uniting five artistic disciplines under one roof: Concerts, theatrical & dance productions, films, media art presentations and photo exhibitions are staged in five halls and several smaller rooms.

A non-profit organisation, the now famous venue was born when a Dutch theatre group discovered a deserted dairy factory in the centre of Amsterdam. Hard work, ambition and NLG 25,000 (about EUR 11,000) enabled the group to transform the factory into a meeting place, initially during the summer only. During the 1970s, the Melkweg became a household name and started developing more in terms of content, offering room for experiments relating to music, theatre, dance and film. The ground floor of the building now houses The Max (capacity 1,500) and the Oude Zaal (capacity 700), which are used primarily for concerts and events. The Photo Gallery and the Café-Restaurant are located on the Marnixstraat side, while the upper floor is occupied by the Cinema (90 seats), the Theaterzaal (112 seats), the Mediaroom. a foyer and the Tearoom. In May 2009, Melkweg opened a new, state-of-the-art theatre hall, together with neighbours Stadsschouwburg Amsterdam (City Theatre) and Toneelgroep Amsterdam.

Also at the Recoil Official Store :
This item has now completely sold out and, at this time, will not be re-stocked. We had intended to produce more but now that the contents of the stick are in the public domain, predictably enough, the inevitable copying and sharing of files via illegal sites has begun. This is what every artist has to contend with these days. We urge every music fan to stop for a moment and just think each time you share a music file which has not been purchased through official channels.
