Regent Street Cinema Presents: Backstreet Boys Show 'Em What You're Made Of
Great doc' in a slick cinema? We want it that way…
Take a step into British cinematic history at the Regent Street Cinema. Britain's oldest cinema, it was the first place in the country to ever show moving pictures. It kickstarted British cinema with a screening of Cinematographe in 1986. Now, you can catch a special screening of the Backstreet Boys doc, Show 'Em What You're Made Of, with a Q+A with the director after the screening. This film is about a band, of course, but it’s more universal a story than that – it is about five friends, it is about sacrifice and redemption, it is about a reckoning with a past and a path forward into a new kind of freedom. It is about home and family, and how many different ways we define those things. Having lived exceptional lives in a glaring spotlight, having lost a youth to the demands of fame, home and family can be many things. We see that boys still struggle to become men, forging their paths both in private, in the public eye, and together, through their music. This is a great watch and not just for fans of the band. "Fans will eat this up." – Empire Magazine "The result is rather more interesting than you might expect." – The Times Certificate: 15. Runtime: 1 hour 49 minutes.
"Its tale of broken friendships, rickety knees, backstabbing managers and independently funded, acoustic-lead latterday albums should act as a warning to any up-and-coming boyband."
