A glamorous night coming up at the Ivy House on Saturday December 4th, with Brockley Jack Film Club taking a holiday from their usual venue to bring a touch of 1920s Soho to Nunhead.

They will be showing the 1929 silent movie Piccadilly, starring Anna May Wong as a Chinese dancer in the West End. I've seen this film before and there's some great nightclub footage from the Cafe de Paris. To add to the atmosphere on the night there will be an evocative improvised score performed by acclaimed Russian accordionist Igor Outkine (who himself has appeared in Cronenberg's film Eastern Promises). There will also be classic cocktails at the bar.
