Stanley’s Film Club brings a flavour of sun-drenched Havana to South Norwood this summer with a screening of Wim Wender’s much-loved documentary, Buena Vista Social Club on Saturday, July 30.
Cinema-goers can make an evening of it, with Cuban-themed food and drink, too, live music and dancing, and all for an entry fee of less than a tenner.
Presented in partnership with the Rhythm and Views Film Festival, sip a mojito and soak up the true story of a group of legendary Cuban musicians, all but forgotten in Castro’s Cuba, reunited to play together once more. The result is a melting pot of incredible music, breathtaking performances and the happiest ending ever.
The film will be followed by dancing, and live Cuban music from Kandela Mi Son. With tropical beats courtesy of Shut the Front Door DJs, hand-crafted rum cocktails from Syrup Junkie and street food in the yard, Stanley’s Summer Fiesta is set to be a vibrant celebration of one nation’s music, culture and individuality.
Food, drink and box office from 6pm. Film programme 7pm.
