This June, we're excited to be part of ReVive Festival - a city-wide celebration of Mods, the birth of subcultures and the 1960s! Our film season takes in the angry young men of the '50s, how their rebellion against the shackles of their parents' lives saw the start of the Mod movement, and ends in swinging London in the 1960s. Kicking everything off, we have the classic QUADROPHENIA! Scooters vs. Harleys! Trench Coats vs. Leathers! It’s Mods vs. Rockers in Franc Roddam’s Quadrophenia.England, 1965 and Jimmy hates his advertising firm job but loves the rebellious Mod lifestyle; taking drugs, riding scooters and listening to music.Then the infamous August bank holiday of 65’ happens and the clash of two cultures causes chaos when the Mods and Rockers collide at Brighton Beach.
