We know how much you guys love free beer and film screenings. Almost as much as we do! So, when we got an email alerting us to an event combining both of these things, we felt duty bound to pass on the information.

With the imminent release of Rodriguez/Tarantino double-feature Grindhouse, Tiger Beer and Firecracker have teemed up to remind us of the joy and wonder that the double-feature brought to audiences in the Seventies - by screening two cult Asian films directed by Filipino Bobby A. Suarez back-to-back in Glasgow and (perhaps more relevantly) London. The films are the promisingly-titled One-Armed Executioner and They Call Her... Cleopatra Wong.

Suarez is a legend in the genre, bringing audiences B-movies filled with "excessive blood, guts and scantily clad women". Plus, there'll be interviews with the stars, a "film dub challenge", demonstrations of martial arts, and Asian food. Oh, and did we mention the free beer? I feel almost certain that we did.

Register for your tickets to the Tiger Beer/Firecracker Grindhouse at their website here. The London screening is at the SEOne Club on Weston Street on 31 May.
