Friends of the Picture House present
Mods and rockers alike are invited to January's Friends of the Picture House ouse screening of The Who's 1979 film Quadrophenia.
Although not a musical like Ken Russel's earlier film of Tommy, Quadrophenia is loosely based on the 1973 album of the same name and captures the London-Brighton milieu of the band's youth. Lambrettas, drugs, all-night discos, loose morals and, of course, massive punch-ups with Kinks fans pepper the film which is pretty much a sacred text of mod life.
The huge cast features Phil Daniels, Leslie Ash, Timothy Spall, Sting, Toyah Wilcox and Ray Winstone.
Saturday January 12th, 4:30pm (Doors 4pm)
