Sun-Up Rooftop Cinema Club: Iris (2015)
Be a daybreaker – a summer series of free Lipton Ice Tea morning events across London
Not a morning person? That's about to change. Our mates over at Lipton Ice Tea are hosting a refreshingly awesome early morning movie screening as part of Daybreakers, so you can start your day off with a spring in your step. Head up to the Queen Of Hoxton Rooftop for a screening of Iris by the late legendary documentarian Albert Maysles, 4 weeks before the UK cinematic release date. The film follows Iris Apfel – the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old who's had an outsized presence on the New York fashion scene for decades. It's more than a fashion film – rather, the documentary is a story about how a soaring free spirit continues to inspire. 96% on Rotten Tomatoes. "The film exists as a document both of a witty, good-natured society fixture and of a very particular moment in history." – Time Magazine "Maysles endearingly reveals Apfel's blend of blind passion and keen practicality, her unflagging enthusiasm for transmitting her knowledge to young people, and her synoptic view of fashion as living history." – New Yorker Valid ID required. Runtime: 1 hour 20 minutes. Tap to get on the waiting list and we'll notify you when tickets become available. For full terms and conditions, please visit beadaybreaker.co.uk
"There are few better ways right now to spend 80 movie minutes than to see Iris."
