Battle of Soho (15)

Battle of Soho

Sat 24 Feb

20:00

In November 2014, the iconic London club Madame Jojo's closed its doors.

This event was interpreted by many as the death knell of Soho, London's bohemian heart. The gentrification of Soho affects not only the LGBT community and its drag queen subculture, but the cabaret atmosphere of the entire neighborhood in enormous ways. The active pursuit to destroy such a bubbling and vibrant part of the city's heart is viewed by many as an atrocity akin to turning the lights off on Broadway.


An active movement to bring a halt to this disaster has begun to unfold with one organization after another emerging to fight for Soho. Passionate groups made up of citizens and celebrities have sprung up to combat this onslaught. Will they win this battle and save Soho?


This thought-provoking documentary is a must-see, and we're very proud to be presenting a one night only screening here at The Flavel.
