For any comic and film buff, what could possibly be better than binging on DC films? Only doing the same in a room filled with DC fans. So, here's your chance to have that wish come true. In fact, it might well be a New Year wish come true. Bandra-based venue Adagio that hosts The Screening Experience every Wednesday to get lovers of the medium under one roof, is putting together a thematic festival this time.

Speaking about the motive behind this exercise, manager Demetrius Lancelot Newton tells us, "We believe in promoting gems that have been forgotten. We decided to host these films because they truly are works of art that should be enjoyed by people in groups." Fans of the films and the genre at large are sure to agree. However, their selection process may bring out the sceptics, as online reviews were their chosen method. "We did focus on movies that were forgotten, though," assures Newton.

The format is fairly simple; the screenings are preceded by the excitement in the room and followed by a discussion. This is where you get to debate the working of Gotham City and gain insight into the newer interpretations of other fans. On an average, 20 to 30 people make it for these screenings and that's the turnout the venue is expecting for the festival too. There is no age limit and anyone can land up at the shows.

While film screenings may be common, this is also where you get to start your year with Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 2 with fellow enthusiasts. Now, whether it is a hangover you are nursing after that New Year's Eve party or just looking to spend a lazy day kicking back with a film, this one is for you.

On January 1 onwards, every Wednesday, 8.30 pm
