The Rack Pack at The Luxe Cinema

Thursday 15th September, 5:30PM


Comedy drama exploring the glory days of the Seventies and Eighties snooker scene, when huge characters became household names and Snooker Loopy troubled the pop charts.
The story tells of the rivalry between Alex ‘Hurricane’ Higgins (Luke Treadaway), whose natural talent and showmanship transformed the image of the traditional game and captivated audiences across the country, and Steve ‘The Nugget’ Davis (Will Merrick). This rip roaring romp through the snooker scene of Eighties Britain is a celebration of the huge personalities of the time and an affectionate look at a gloriously nostalgic period of this very British sport.
In 1985, the climax of the world snooker final broadcast on the BBC in the early hours of a Monday morning was watched by 18.5 million people in the UK, which remains a record for a post-midnight audience for any channel in the country.
This year is the 30th anniversary of that final and The Rack Pack celebrates.
Mandy Fisher, the 1981 ladies world champions finalist, will be introducing the film, discussing it at the end and also talking about her snooker career.
