QUADROPHENIA (Franc Raddam, 1979, Cert 18)

Saturday 18th May
Stow Film Lounge @ Mirth, Marvel & Maud, 186 Hoe St, Walthamstow, London E17 9HQ at 6.45pm (Doors)

Stow Film Lounge is absolutely delighted to be back at the former Granada Cinema on Hoe Street to bring you our 40th anniversary screening, and celebration of The Who playing this iconic building, of this classic youth culture rock opera.

Two rival youth cults emerge – the mods and the rockers – with explosive consequences. For Jimmy (Phil Daniels) and his sharp-suited, pill-popping, scooter-riding mates, being a mod is a way of life, it’s their generation. Together they head off to Brighton for and orgy of drugs, thrills and headline-making, violent clashes with the rockers.

Set to the music of The Who’s seminal rock opera, Quadrophenia is still one of the most definitive films of its time, vividly capturing the youth culture of Britain in the 1960s.

The Mirth bar will be open as usual. We will also be serving freshly made popcorn and ice-creams.
