Settle down for a barrel of laughs with the original 1980’s cult classic The Blues Brothers at Copeland Park on Thursday 9th of September.
In association with Peckham & Nunhead Free Film Festival, Peckham Festival and Electric Pedals, this isn’t any ordinary screening. Electric Pedals’ ingenious concept of pedal powered cinemas makes audience members take it in turns to keep it playing!
The Blues Brothers follows paroled convict Jake and his brother Elwood through a story of redemption to try and save their Catholic orphanage in which they were raised from closure. To do so they scheme to reform their R&B band and organise a performance to raise the funds to keep the orphanage going. However, Neo-Nazis, a mystery woman, a country and western band and the ever chasing police make this a little less simple.
There will be plenty of food and beverages available on the evening from food traders and even a pizza bus! After the film, head to the NINES for some real blues band action or to Rye Wax to continue the fun past midnight. This is an outdoor event so bring warm waterproof clothes.
Free event. No booking needed. Arrive early to secure a seat. Find out more about PNFF here http://www.freefilmfestivals.org/filmfestival/peckham-nunhead, and Electric Pedals at http://www.electricpedals.com/.
