Londonist is proud media partner to Underground Film Club.
David Bowie was just as extraordinary a figure on film as he was in his music: from an ice cool vampire in The Hunger to his alien adrift in The Man Who Fell To Earth (was he revealing his true self here?).
Underground Film Club is hosting a special screening of one of the Thin White Duke’s most idiosyncratic and iconic performances: as the Goblin King in classic 80s film Labyrinth. And to celebrate Bowie's advocacy of the LGBT community, all of the profits from the screening will go to Stonewall.
The screening takes place this Saturday, 16 January at 3pm in the highly suitable maze of tunnels underneath Waterloo train station known as The Vaults. And we encourage you to dress up as your favourite Bowie persona to better enjoy back-to-back songs by the Black Star himself before and after the screening in Smokey Joe’s Bar, which is also within the tunnels. Tickets to the screening are £15 and can be booked online here (but be quick, they are going fast).
Underground Film Club is at The Vaults, Launcelot Street, SE1 7AD (entrance via Launcelot Street, off Lower Marsh — nearest tube Waterloo).
