Belleville Rendezvous live cinema event headed to Roxy Bar & Screen
Preview by Jack Foley
SHEFFIELD band and masters of the film re-score Animat are revisiting their classic Belleville Rendezvous live cinema event with a special preview at Roxy Bar & Screen in London on July 21, 2013, prior to a national tour in August and September as part of Scalarama.
Sylvain Chomet’s hugely-original, Oscar-nominated film is the animated tale of a grandmother trying to rescue her cycling champion grandson from the French mafia, aided by her dog and aging song-and-dance trio.
For the live event, Animat blend original sounds and music from the original film with a range of live instrumentation and samples to create a unique, magical experience.
The event starts 8pm on Sunday, July 21 at Roxy Bar & Screen, 128 Borough High Street, SE1 1LB
Tickets are £8 and available in advance here
This September, the team behind Scala Forever and Scala Beyond are back with a new season and new format – Scalarama!
Continuing to celebrate all forms of cinema, this year a core programme – a curated selection of new digital restorations, live rescores and rare archive prints – will play in key cities across the UK alongside all the weird and wonderful range of Scala-season events.
Screenings will take place up and down the country in cinemas, film clubs, festivals, pop-ups, schools, in fields, under motorways, on boats… and even in your home!
From the beginning of August, the revamped Scalarama website www.scalarama.com will guide you through the 300+ film screenings expected to take place during a month of cinema frenzy, and help you discover new films, venues, film clubs, bringing together audiences to rediscover, enjoy and celebrate the independent, communal film viewing experience.
If you are a cinema, film club, society or arts venue, you can now book a title from the core programme, whilst the rest of the programme is open to event submissions from all programmers, whether big or small, inner city or rural, cult or pop, experienced or completely novice – everyone can join in and create the UK’s widest and most inclusive celebration of cinema.
