Perfectly polished crime
The Roxy Bar and Screen is perhaps one of London's best-kept secrets. Tucked away behind thick red curtains, the screening room has something of a speakeasy feel about it – expect comfy couches, cosy armchairs, leather sofas, tables and barstool all set in front of the big screen. Your ticket also includes any main dish from the Roxy menu before you tuck into the main event. Tonight’s offering is 2015’s crime comedy drama Focus, staring Will Smith and Margot Robbie. Crime films come and go, but a good con film is a little different. Focus follows veteran con-man Nicky (Will Smith) through sleek hotel bars and polished urban landscapes. However, during his latest scheme, a woman from his past (Margot Robbie) shows up and things fall apart. But one question remains, will they pull off the enormous (and, admittedly, ludicrous) con? "Star power, actor chemistry, and caper movie twists." – ReelViews "Focus is nothing if not sleek and luxurious; it's a fantasy portrait of the upside of a sort of criminality that's portrayed as relatively benign, that is, without victims of physical harm." – The Hollywood Reporter Over 18s only. Certificate: 15. Valid ID required. Runtime: 1 hour 45 minutes. Dress code: smart casual.
