Fight the power! Courtesy of the fine chaps over at fellow UK film blog Permanent Plastic Helmet, we have a pair of tickets to giveaway for a very special summer screening of Spike Lee’s incendiary 1989 classic Do The Right Thing at Clapham Picturehouse on Thursday 5 July (8:45pm). This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at facebook.com/CineVueUK or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.
It’s the hottest day of the year in Brooklyn’s Bed-Stuy district, and tensions are rising in the ghetto, where the only businesses are a Korean grocery and Sal’s Pizzeria. Mookie, Sal’s delivery boy (played be Lee), always manages to be at the centre of the action. Lee’s incendiary slice of contemporary New York street life was a sensation upon its release, with its dazzlingly confident visual style and razor-sharp observations of the contentious race relations in the ultimate American melting pot.
Don’t miss a rare opportunity to see this unforgettable blend of style, comedy, drama and music on the big screen, in glorious 35mm. Join Permanent Plastic Helmet for classic 80s hip-hop and soul in the bar beforehand, and a special prize giveaway.
