Odeon cinemas to host tribute to David Bowie with charity Labyrinth screen


Story by Jack Foley

FANS wishing to celebrate the career of the legendary actor and singer David Bowie will have the chance at Odeon Cinemas across the UK, as a special one-off charity screening of the 1986 film Labyrinth will be held this coming Tuesday, January 19, 2016 at 8.15pm.

All of the box office proceedings from ticket sales will be donated to Cancer Research UK.

Tickets are on sale now, and can be booked via the ODEON website – with no booking fees.

Simon Soffe, Group Head of Communications at ODEON, commented: “David Bowie had a glittering career and gave us decades of entertainment. We are honoured to celebrate his work with these special charity screenings. We hope as many guests as possible will join us to enjoy Labyrinth and help raise money for a fantastic cause.”

Eight ODEON cinemas across the UK – including Birmingham Broadway Plaza, Cardiff, Kingston, Liverpool ONE, Manchester Printworks, Metrocentre, Norwich, and Southampton – will host a charity screening of the film that night, with fans expected to flock to the cinema to celebrate Bowie’s career and support a great cause.

The fantastical Labyrinth stars the late David Bowie as the Goblin King Jareth, with Jennifer Connelly as the teenager tasked with rescuing her baby half-brother from his clutches. In order to do so she must make it through the eponymous Labyrinth in thirteen hours, or the baby will become a goblin.

Adult tickets from £6.25.
