BOMBAY MIX: JAILHOUSE ROCK / LUCKNOW CENTRAL

  • Rio Cinema 107 Kingsland High St, London E8 2PB United Kingdom (map)

Join the Rio in welcoming SUPAKINO to our legendary weekend Double Bill program, with a truly unique line-up of films we like to call BOMBAY MIX. Indian cinema meets the rest of the world in a mix of movies that share themes, stories and genres.

Double Bill: 12:00 & 13:50 Tickets no longer available.

We kick things off with a musical incarceration double feature. First up, Elvis Presley's iconic role in JAILHOUSE ROCK (1957).

"After serving time for manslaughter, young Vince Everett (Elvis the Pelvis) becomes a teenage rock star."

Then we jump a few decades and a continent or two to modern day India, with Ranjit Tiwari's LUCKNOW CENTRAL (2017).

"When an innocent man aspiring to be a musician is framed for committing a murder, he decides to form a band with his fellow inmates to win a competition, but winning a jailhouse battle of the bands may not be his only goal."

You can see where we are going with this right?
