Hidden City: Drive in Deco
£ 10 - 25
Part Exchange Co invites you to a HIDDEN CITY event - DRIVE IN DECO
A Drive-in with a Difference!
Part Exchange Co, the team behind Hidden City Festival 2008, invites you to a unique drive-in performance, combining film, theatre, live music, radio broadcast and popcorn.
The Building is the Star!
Representative of the International Guild of City Tenders, Mr Smith, will use his latest technology to reawaken a forgotten art deco car showroom, and guide you through the fascinating life story of this wonderful old star of the West End whose forecourt will be transformed into a 1930s drive-in cinema.
Enjoy all the excitement of a drive-in at this world premiere, where you will be greeted in your car by bellhops and usherettes, enjoy refreshments, and watch dancers perform to big-band hits of the 30s & 40s. As night falls, you will be invited to tune in and sit back for the main feature.
Music by Alexis Kirke and script by Anita Sullivan developed from texts by Cathy McCabe in collaboration with the company.
From an original idea by Cathy MaCabe and Alexis Kirke
