Highlighting under the radar arts and culture in Birmingham, UK

Sunflower Special 60s film night

To ease you into the week, there is a great double-bill of  60s films on Tuesday at the Sunflower Lounge:

The Servant  (1963)

Harold Pinter’s film adaptation of the 1948 novel by Robin Maugham. A sinister drama that takes a sharp look at British class relations via a dramatic turning of the tables between a  Oxbridge bachelor and his contemptuous manservant.

Blow Up (1966)

Classic 60s film which tells of a photographer’s accidental involvement with a murder, inspired by Julio Cortázar’s 1959 short story, ‘Las babas del diablo’, and by the life of Swinging London photographer David Bailey.

The night starts at 7pm and there will be ‘massive yummy pizzas’ for sale. Nom.
