BRIT School pupils in a quick-step towards Hollywood

Stanley’s Film Club is teaming up with The BRIT School for a special night of dance and the movies, with an immersive screening of Damian Chazelle’s Oscar-winning La La Land.

The event takes place on July 1, from 7pm, in the grand setting of St John the Evangelist church in Upper Norwood.

Cinema-goers will be treated to a pre-show party, with live pop-up performances from Year 12 musical theatre students training at The BRIT School. There will be a licensed bar and American-style food.

Audience members are invited to dress for the occasion, and those arriving before 8pm will receive a free glass of bubbly or non-alcoholic punch.

Starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, La La Land is a story about a jazz pianist and an aspiring actress, both struggling to make ends meet in a city famous for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. The Hollywood hopefuls are drawn together by a hunger to succeed doing what they love, and so ensues a tale of passion, heartbreak and self discovery.

The film won Oscars including Best Director, Best Cinematography and Best Original Music Score.

The film is a homage to the classic Hollywood musical. In the same vein, this Stanley’s Film Club event will pay tribute to some of the classic musicals from the 20th Century, with well-known numbers being performed by the pupils.

Doors open – 7pm; Performances start – 8pm; Film – 9pm.

Tickets:- £20, or £15 for Stanley Film Club members. Includes a free glass of prosecco or non-alcoholic punch before 8pm.

Discounted tickets are available for BRIT School students and alumni.
