Interior of Everyman bar. Everyman and Spiritland are uniting

Everyman and Spiritland combine classic movies with after-parties

An artistic collision of films, bass and bevvies in N1C as two titans unite


till one of King’s Cross’s hidden secrets, the awesome newish Everyman cinema teams up with uber-cool music venue Spiritland to bring a special celebration of sound and screen every month. A music-focused flick is chosen from the archives, followed by a cocktail-fuelled afterparty until the wee hours at their new subterranean bar Supermax.

Expect old, new, classic and obscure; previous features include Babylon, the tale of racism, police violence and dub culture in South London and Bohemian Rhapsody, charting the spectacular rise of Queen.

Coming next is 1977 classic Saturday Night Fever, the story of nineteen-year-old Brooklynite and dancefloor king Tony Manero. After that? Purple Rain, tracing the path of the Minneapolis musician and his band the Revolution.

Then off to the bar for libations aplenty: don’t miss the likes of Night Moves, a punchy number made of sloe gin, and blackberry eau de vie (fruit brandy), lemon and honey – the water of life.


Saturday night Fever, 9th Nov, 9pm start, Purple Rain, 13th December, 8.30pm. Everyman 14-18 Handyside Street N1C. Tickets here.
