Props to The Rooftop Film Club for a blinding forthcoming June programme…


They’ve only gone and done it again…

Those Rooftop FIlm Clubbers. They’re so cocky with their know-how and their retro film collection. I was convinced they couldn’t possibly pull another alluring line-up out of the bag for Summer 2013. However, their June screenings are so enticing, I feel like I’ve been seduced to the point of quitting my job and spending the rest of my days eating popcorn on the roof of The Queen of Hoxton, slowly fading away in a heady cloud of 80’s classics and popped kernels. What a way to die that’d be.

I’m delighted that they’ve resumed their cine-residency at The Queen of Hoxton’s rooftop haven and I urge you to take a look at the run-down of screenings below, pick your favourite, grab a mate and go check it out. There’s also a film review below of the time I went to see Top Gun with the Clubbers. Watching a film about potentially watching films -that’s just how we roll.

Here is the programme according to the Rooftoppers themselves:

Yes, returning to the rooftop once again for your viewing pleasure are everyone’s favourite adventurers ‘The Goonies’, David and ‘The Package’ in ‘Labyrinth’, the legend that is ‘Senna’, a naughty Benjamin and Mrs R in ‘The Graduate’, troll-maggedon(!) in ‘Trollhunter’, employees to the rescue in ‘Empire Records’, high times in ‘Dazed and Confused’, those bad boy vampires in ‘The Lost Boys’ and some serious volume (all the way up to 11!) in ‘This is Spinal Tap’. We like to call them rooftop classic classics!

We also have some brilliant new additions to our rooftop family with that big hunk of love Ryan Gosling (settle down ladies!) in ‘Blue Valentine’, the multi award winning ‘Argo’, everyone’s favourite furry troublemaker ‘Ted’, the fantastical and magical ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’, and the hilarious ‘Old School’. Frank the Tank! Frank the Tank!
