Indie comedy darling Hundreds of Beavers to screen at the Cube for one night only

Posted on: 03 Jun 2024

Hundreds of Beavers, an idiosyncratic indie comedy that has taken the internet by storm, is screening for one night only this July at the Cube Microplex.


In this 19th century, supernatural winter epic, a drunken applejack salesman must go from zero to hero and become North America’s greatest fur trapper by defeating hundreds of beavers.


Taking five-and-a-half years to make, with only a total budget of $150,000 (for comparison, that’s 0.08% of Furiosa’s budget), Hundreds of Beavers is an indie gem, and a clear labour of love and effort – effort that’s paid off in the critical and audience response.



Jean Kayak (Ryland Brickson Cole Tews) finds himself stranded in a surreal winter landscape with nothing but his dim wits to guide him. Against a backdrop of ruthless elements and sinister creatures (all played by actors in full-sized mascot costumes) develops increasingly complex traps in order to win the hand of a mischievous lover.


Since releasing, Hundreds of Beavers has won awards at multiple major Film Festivals, including Best Narrative Film and Best Director (for director Mike Cheslik) – as well as receiving critical acclaim across the board, with the film being hailed as a modern masterpiece of black-and-white slapstick film.



Now, Bristolian audiences will get their chance to catch Hundreds of Beavers on the big screen; the film is coming to our very own Cube Microplex for a screening later this summer, at the start of July. You can catch Hundreds of Beavers at the Cube on Tuesday 9 July.


With tickets only £5 to see a film you’re unlikely to see on a cinema screen in the UK for some time, it’s a no-brainer to get in on this – especially if you’re a film fan. For more information on the film screening, and to score your tickets to Hundreds of Beavers, head to the Cube’s website.
