It's a well-known fact that Bugsy Malone is one of the best films ever made. And now Future Cinemas is putting on a live cinema event with all the trimmings (including showgirls and custard pies) at the Art Deco Troxy cinema for several nights over the next few weeks.
I really hope I can get myself into gear and go along, even though my thesis is due in only FOUR WEEKS. Eep! My sister and I used to bounce and dance and run and sing our way around our living room as kids, acting this film out. I used to dream of having one of those pedal-powered cars and being part of a world like Bugsy's. So this is pretty much as close as I think I'll ever get to a childhood dream come true.
If you're in London, go along! If you're not, grab a few friends and watch it at home, getting up to dance around if you feel so inclined.
