The Catford Film Club team write:

Catford will be joining the ranks of unlikely cinema locations this month with the Catford Broadway Pop Up Cinema Night.

On Saturday 20 September the newly pedestrianised broadway will host the free showing of the 1980’s sci-fi classic Flash Gordon.

The night starts at 7pm with the film starting at 7.30pm sharp.  There’ll be street food from local chefs Route 66 serving up the fresh Mexican flavours of Southern California, as well as a pop up bar by local pub the Constitution Club.

The audience are encouraged to bring a cushion, blankets or their own seating to avoid numb bum by sitting on the concrete floor. The guideline being ‘if you can carry it, then you can bring it’.

The night has been organised by Deck Social, who delivered the Catford Broadway Supper Club, the Catford Canteen, the Deptford Brunch Club, and the newly Catford Society.

Director, Deborah Efemini said: ‘It’s great to be doing something in Catford again. We’re local so were happy to volunteer our time to support this great project and work with the Catford Society and local businesses.

The Catford Broadway Pop Up Cinema is a taster event for the Catford Free Film Festival launching in March 2015 which aims to bring people together from across the community to enjoy free films. It’s also part of the Mayor of London’s Summer of High Streets celebrations, with free events across London.
