Various see details
To mark the BFI’s Gross Indecency season this summer we’ve put together a fantastic goody bag. Contents include:
A pair of tickets to the screening of **** Up Your Ears followed by a Q&A with director Stephen Frears on Friday 4 August. **** Up Your Ears still feels as daring and fresh as it did on its release 30 years ago. Gary Oldman plays the charming Orton, who was the toast of the London stage in the mid-1960s, delighting and shocking audiences with his biting satires: Loot, What the Butler Saw and Entertaining Mr Sloane.
A copy of Queer City by Peter Ackroyd, “the greatest living chronicler of London” (The Independent), courtesy of Vintage Books. In Queer City Ackroyd looks at the metropolis in a whole new way – through the history and experiences of its gay population. He takes us into the hidden city, celebrating its diversity, thrills and energy on the one hand, but reminding us of its very real terrors, dangers and risks on the other. In a city of superlatives, it’s perhaps this endless sexual fluidity and resilience that epitomises the real triumph of London.
A pair of film-themed gin cocktails! Nothing says summer on Southbank like a refreshing gin cocktail at BFI Riverfront. Check out our menu to choose from five speciality gin-infused cocktails.
And finally a copy of the new film poster for Victim courtesy of our friends at Park Circus. Screening at the BFI from 21 July don’t miss the chance to enjoy Dirk Bogarde’s trailblazing performance in this landmark gay classic.
