This charming adaptation of Truman Capote's novel, set in an idealised early-1960s New York, was nominated for several Oscars.
Audrey Hepburn stars as Manhattan good-time girl Holly Golightly, who spends her time at exclusive parties and on high-class dates. The carefree Holly – who remains uncommitted and aloof towards the wealthy men who shower her with gifts – strikes up a fragile relationship with her neighbour, the aspiring writer Paul Varjak (Peppard). He is suffering from writers’ block while being kept by a wealthy woman (Patricia Neal).
But just as Holly and Paul’s romance begins to grow, Doc (Buddy Ebsen) appears on the scene and complicates matters, revealing the truth about Holly's past.
John Waters' gloriously grotesque, unavailable-for-decades second feature comes to theatres at long last, replete with all manner of depravity, from robbery to murder to one of cinema's most memorably blasphemous moments.
Made on a shoestring budget in Baltimore, with Waters taking on nearly every technical task, this gleeful mockery of the peace-and-love ethos of its era features the Cavalcade of Perversion, a travelling show put on by a troupe of misfits whose shocking proclivities are topped only by those of their leader: the glammer-than-glam, larger-than-life Divine, who's out for blood after discovering her lover's affair.
Directed by pioneering rock film-maker D.A. Pennebaker, this documentary and concert film captures Bowie and his band, The Spiders From Mars, performing at London’s Hammersmith Odeon on July 3, 1973. It was at this now-infamous concert that Bowie made a sudden announcement, shocking fans and media alike by stating “it’s the last show we’ll ever do”. Rather than marking his withdrawal from music, his declaration signalled the retirement of the Ziggy Stardust persona, and the end of a hugely influential chapter in Bowie’s own story.
In addition to the concert movie, the evening will include a new film produced by MOJO magazine exclusively for these screenings. This film will feature MOJO’s Editor-In-Chief Phil Alexander in conversation with The Spiders From Mars drummer Woody Woodmansey, whose own acclaimed memoir, My Life With Bowie: Spider From Mars, has just been published by Sidgwick & Jackson. As well as re-living that fateful night in 1973, Woody will provide further insight into what he describes as “the adventure of a lifetime.”
CinEvents are working with MOJO magazine – Britain’s biggest-selling music magazine, which Bowie guest edited in 2002 – to further enhance the cinema-going experience. Every attendee will receive a copy of the magazine which will fully document the Ziggy-era, and which will also feature an exclusive David Bowie/Spiders From Mars Collectors’ Cover. This special souvenir cover will not be available in the shops, and is destined to become one of the rarest covers ever produced by the award-winning MOJO team with a retail value of £7.99.
