Come on down for Get On Up
Backyard Cinema have teamed up with Camden Market to bring you their very own outdoor summer film festival set across two screens. Sink into giant beanbags and lounge on deckchairs as you enjoy a selection of films, all served with fresh burgers, craft beer, cocktails and a decent helping of live DJs. Adventure through the alleys of Camden Market to find the intimate courtyard hosting the Cuban Screen stage. Here, you will find a more unusual range of indie flicks, moving documentaries and foreign language films. Tonight’s offering is Get On Up. Based on the incredible life story of James Brown, the film offers a fearless look inside the music, moves and moods of the godfather of soul - warts and all. Chadwick Boseman is charismatic as Brown, taking audiences on the journey from his impoverished childhood to his evolution into one of the most influential figures of the 20th century. "One funk-tastic musical biopic." – New York Post "The godfather of soul is an untameable force of nature in this stirring story of his life." – The Guardian Certificate: 12. Runtime: 2 hours 19 minutes. Please note that your email address will be passed to the event organiser as these details act as proof of purchase and are required to gain entry.
