Setamongst the rubble near the Olympic Park site lays an abandoned sign-writers workshop. The workshop is awaiting demolishment and in the meantime Sugarhouse Studios have sprung this into action by turning it into a home for late night movies, a Sunday cinema, supper club, events space with workshops for small scale making and design along with a cafe (with proper builders tea for 80p) and a bar, open seven days a week.
Kicking off this weekend is American Graffiti a nostalgic technicolour cruise through teenage rock and roll culture of the early 1960’s with a deep dark undercurrent, Saturday sees a Mario Cart Tournament (nice) and Sunday a Lebanese Supper Club.
On Thursday (10th May) you can catch film Radio On (1979) with a Q&A with director Chris Petit. Radio On is a rare example of a British road movie, shot in black and white and featuring music from a number of New Wave bands.
There are also many more food and film nights to come – check out their programme of what going on here.
4th May – 28th June Sugarhouse Studios, 107 High Street, Stratford, E15
