Only Lovers Left Alive Live
ATP and Cinema Paradiso have announced a must-attend special event in London on February 6th to launch the new Jim Jarmusch film ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ in the UK, starring Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston.
Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister. Can these wise but fragile outsiders continue to survive as the modern world collapses around them?
With an all-star cast including Oscar-winner TILDA SWINTON, TOM HIDDLESTON, MIA WASIKOWSKA, ANTON YELCHIN and JOHN HURT, ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE is the apotheosis of American Independent film and underground music combined, from acclaimed director JIM JARMUSCH.
Beginning with a screening of the film in ODEON Leicester Square at 6:45 for a 7:15pm start, followed by a live show at Heaven, where musicians from the soundtrack such as White Hills, Jozef Van Wissem, Yasmine Hamdan, and Jim Jarmusch’s band SQÜRL – will all play live. It is also the first time writer/director Jim Jarmusch’s band SQÜRL has ever performed in the UK. This is a special advance screening of the film ahead of its general release in the UK on February 21st, so tickets are expected to go fast.
Tickets including film screening and live event are priced at £26.50 + bf, and are on sale now HERE. Please wear sunglasses and leather (or fake leather) gloves to the event
