TIME AND PLACE:

Always open

@ Trafalgar Square, Westminster, London WC1N 5DS

Free to view

www.london.gov.uk

Over the past seven years the Fourth Plinth in the northwest corner of Trafalgar Square has become home to some of the world’s most innovative artworks.

The plinth was originally designed by Sir Charles Barry in 1841 to display an equestrian statue, however due to insufficient funds the statue was never completed. In 1998 – over one hundred and fifty years later – the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) commissioned three contemporary sculptures by Mark Wallinger, Bill Woodrow and Rachel Whiteread to be displayed temporarily on the plinth.

Slackers presents SINGLES @ The Prince Charles Cinema / Thursday 25th July 2013

TIME AND PLACE

Free beer & pizza available from 8.20pm
Screening 8.45pm

The Prince Charles Cinema,
7 Leicester Place, WC2H 7BY 

Tickets £11 / £8.50 members

All tickets include a FREE BEER & SLICE OF PIZZA

The Prince Charles Cinema has a new SLACKERS party night, and to set the tone perfectly their first screening is SINGLES: the not-that-well-known-but-should-be 90s rom-com that inspired Friends.

In classic PCC style this is not only a film screening: they’re throwing open their doors and letting the 90’s in. There will be a selection of music videos with lyrics on the screen for you to sing along to before the film, and every ticket-holder gets a free slice of pizza & a free beer – in a red party cup!

SINGLES is a love letter to the “Seattle sound” from director Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous, Vanilla Sky), and follows a group of friends in an apartment block learning lessons about life and love, soundtracked with an amazing original playlist of 90s grunge from Pearl Jam to Paul Westerberg, and starring a young Bridget Fonda and Matt Dillon.

So get your old plaid shirt from out of the bottom of your wardrobe, throw on those ripped jeans and celebrate everything to love about the 90s – as recommended by the director Cameron Crowe himself!
