Brit gangster starring Bob Hoskins + Helen Mirren
Arrive early for the full experience. Doors open at 4pm for the Compulsion exhibition, where eight local artists present site-specific installations in the rooms of the former hospital. The screening of John Mackenzie's 1980 gangster classic The Long Good Friday starts at 7pm. Then from 9pm-midnight it's the after-party with Fat White Family performing live and a DJ set from Idle Fret. Screened as part of Shuffle Festival, curated by Danny Boyle. Your ticket includes access to the exhibition, indoor screening, and after-party. General admission.
"Filled with classic British gangster-movie iconography – hard London faces hung upside-down from meathooks, the stock-car pile-up – The Long Good Friday is also a grownup, despairing look at Britain on the edge of an economic and political precipice."
