Queer musical classic Cabaret is back on the big screen with sickening live performances throughout the night, reinterpretations of classic songs from the film, decadence, dancing, singing and audience participation all in a club setting.
Trans showgirl and Make A Scene hostess Grace Oni Smith stars as Sally Bowles with Darren Pritchard as EmCee.
An iconic, incredibly stylish study of the hedonism and sexual ambiguity of pre-war Berlin, Cabaret was a huge, multi Oscar-winning hit for choreographer and director Bob Fosse in 1972 and made Liza Minnelli (who won Best Actress) a star.
Join us in the QFT Bar after the film for the glorious return of Musical-eoke! A huge hit when we first hosted it back in November, this is a “musical-only” karaoke and lip sync night hosted by cabaret legend Cherrie Ontop. Everyone can be a star for the night, regardless of their vocal ability!
CABARET from 8.30pm to 11.00pm
MUSICAL-EOKE from 11.00pm to 1.00am
Presented in partnership with Live Cinema UK and Make A Scene.
Screening as part of BFI Musicals! The Greatest Show on Screen, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery, BFI Film Audience Network and ICO. bfimusicals.co.uk
