Every few months InFormed London wait eagerly for the return of REEL MUSIC – and they STRIKE BACK this month with the tagline: May the 4th be with you! Ok, yes,  it’s obvious this is a movie-themed club night, and for film fans it’s an uninhibited haven in an underground bowling alley. Here’s what you can expect:

FANCY DRESS is highly encouraged! Come as your favourite film character. Plus… OSCARS awarded to the best dressed. AMERICAN DINER for a Pulp Fiction style snack. POOL if you fancy yourself the Hustler, get your game on! ARCADE GAMES for some old skool arcade action and TEN PIN BOWLING if you want to be ‘the Dude’ and play a few frames as the soundtracks spin. Lanes are pre-bookable (or available on the night) at an additional fee, as are KARAOKE ROOMS, if you want to provide your own musical entertainment. Too much Dirty Dancing?! Take a seat in the CINEMA area where classic movie scores await you! Finally, the PAPARAZZI – snapper to the stars – will be on hand to capture the memories.

We’ve already got our costumes ready, what about you?

“Dancing, Drinking, Bowling, Karaoke, Cinema, Popcorn, Soundtracks… REEL MUSIC, a ‘5 Star’ night out for film fans!”

www.bl.uk

A thrilling investigation of crime fiction from the early 1800s to the present day, featuring many of Britain’s best known sleuths.

Crime fiction is not about the squalid details of a murder or the bungling incompetence of a police detective; it is about society, and what happens to it when order breaks down.

Britain, it is safe to say, has had a healthy fascination with this genre of fiction for over 200 years, and this exhibition at the British Library presents an A-Z of crime novels, from the gas-lit horrors of the Victorian era to the pulp paper backs of the 1930s. Locked rooms, monkeys, speckled bands and dark strangers from foreign lands, the peculiar world of the murder mystery is here in all its disquieting glory for the amateur criminologist to enjoy.
