Maitland arthouse cinema Enzian Theater and downtown Orlando's Ace Cafe are teaming up for a screening of post-apocalyptic thriller – or if Trump wins: handy instructional video – Mad Max: Fury Road next week.

The film screening will be indoors at Ace, with the cafe's full menu on offer. The Friday-night event is a fundraiser for the Enzian.

And there couldn't be a better place see this movie (or movie to see in this place), given that "the original Ace Cafe opened in 1938 as a transport cafe for truck and lorry drivers, but quickly became a place where motorbike riders gathered." Two properties joined by a reverence for the internal combustion engine!

Back in 2015, Orlando Weekly gave the Charlize Theron- and Tom Hardy-starring Mad Max remake a full five stars and raved that it was "beautiful mayhem." How can that not entice you?

Mad Max hits the Ace Cafe in downtown Orlando on Friday, Nov. 6, at 6:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased here.
