Quadrophenia screening in aid of Cooke's Pie & Mash

Quadrophenia: Goldhawk Road
Franc Roddam, the Director of 1970s cult classing Quadrophenia, will introduce a special screening of the film next Saturday, the 28th, in aid of Cooke's Pie & Mash shop, still under threat from our Council who appear determined to allow a property developer to demolish the historic Goldhawk Road row of shops next to the Market - despite their actions having been ruled unlawful at the High Court.

It comes after numerous expressions of support from the community in W12 and from further afield for their fight for survival, with a horde of Mods descending on the Bush earlier this year.

Mod Bush: support for the Bush's heritage
The organiers of the event, Portobello pop-up cinema, invite you to:
"come and enjoy when Britain ran riot to the sound of the Kinks, the Mods are on the march, bring your scooters, a top night out".
The event takes place under the arches of the Westway, entrance from Portobello Road. The nearest Underground is Ladbroke Grove (3 mins). Buses: 7, 23, 52, 70, 452.

Tickets are £4, and obtainable at the door on the night. Film starts at 8pm. Full programme available here.
