Don’t know about you guys, but I dread the pressure of coming up with my own birthday celebrations, especially for the typically significant ages. In the past I’ve gotten away with it – my friends threw me a surprise party for my 18th, and my parents took me to New York for my 21st.
So I was freakin’ ecstatic when I received an email from Future Cinema, announcing the spectacular event that was to happen on my 25th birthday weekend. They turned Canary Wharf into Santa Carla for an epic screening of The Lost Boys. Two things I love – California and Secret Cinema. Perfect!
Depending on surnames, everyone dressed up as a Lost Boy (vampire), Frog Brother (vampire hunter), surfer or hippie/acidhead. In 1980s California, man. Sweet.
The crowd looked incredible. They screened The Lost Boys on Saturday and Top Gun on Sunday, and both days were completely sold out (that’s 8,000 people!)
Oh and what was I? …a Frog Brother ”fighting for truth, justice and the American way!” Those vampires didn’t stand a chance.
I shot a video when we were singing along to the opening credits ‘Cry Little Sister’. We sound terrible, but we were having so much fun!
