Handel & Hendrix in London Team Up With Everyman Cinemas for Electric Church
We are delighted to announce our upcoming partnership with Everyman Cinemas as part of their 2019 Music Film Festival. For one night only, experience the best of Jimi Hendrix with a screening of critically-acclaimed documentary Electric Church, plus live music, DJs and a Q&A.
On Thursday 23rd May, come along to Everyman Baker Street to see Electric Church, a film which presents Hendrix’s 4th July concert at the 1970 Atlanta Pop Festival and sheds light on the turbulent times he lived in. Alongside the guitarist’s epic performance, the film explores the period of civil rights unrest in America, the toll of the Vietnam War and the boom of festival culture that brought thousands of young people together inspired by Woodstock. See the guitarist in his full element on stage in 16mm footage and colour, and experience the concert in its original performance sequence just as his audience would have done.
After the screening, be transported back to 1970 yourself as we, Handel & Hendrix in London, transform Everyman Baker Street into a psychedelic house party. Dance the night away as DJs play sets inspired by Jimi’s record collection on vinyl, and lounge in a pop-up version of his very own bedroom at Brook Street. Buy memorabilia usually only available at the museum and enjoy drink from the bar all night long. With introductions from Dr Christian Lloyd, author of Hendrix at Home, and a Q&A with Doug Kaye, who knew Jimi during his time living in London, it’s sure to be an event that you will never forget!
