Capital Celluloid - Day 272: Saturday October 2

Midnight Movies and Reel Music present I Could Have Danced All-Nighter

Bugsy Malone (Parker, 1976); Rock N Roll High School (Arkush, 1979); Can't Stop The Music (Walker, 1980) and The Rocky Horror Picture Show (Sharman, 1975): Roxy Bar and Screen, 11pm

This is part of the Scala Forever season, a programme of 111 films and events at 26 venues through to October 2 that will celebrate the wonderful Scala cinema at King's Cross which closed in 1993. Here is an article I wrote in the Guardian on the history of the cinema and the season and here are the details of all the movies and special events on offer, via the Scala Forever website.

Here is the great trailer for the evening.

Here is the Scala Forever website introduction: Midnight Movies, experts in late-night cult film events, team up with Reel Music, London's No. 1 movie soundtrack club night, to present an all-night dancing special. Costumes and sensible shoes are essential as we expect you to take to the floor and throw some shapes. With a pre-screening party, themed cocktails, prizes for the best dressed/best movers and special audio-visual interludes and much more, this is one night you need to stay awake for!  

You don't need reviews. You need songs:

Here is Speak Easy from Bugsy Malone

Here is Rock N Roll High School by The Ramones from the film of the same name

Here is the trailer for Can't Stop The Music

Here is Time Warp from The Rocky Horror Picture Show
