Cigarette Burns Cinema’s second instalment of the Scala Forever season, this time with Special Guest Host, Jasper Sharp.
Back in the late 60s the Japanese film studios targeted the growing teenage audience by combining Pinky or soft porn films with the violent Yakuza and Samurai genres, thus was born: Pinky Violence. Top of the list is the hugely influential FEMALE CONVICT SCORPION series. We follow Sasori as she is double crossed and set up by her high ranking detective lover. A powerful performance by Meiko Kaji (LADY SNOWBLOOD) creates one of cinema’s most unforgettable women. Imprisoned, defiant and bent on revenge, they call her Scorpion for a reason.
Dee Dee is busy stocking her Vault of Vintage and the ever present Graham Murphy of Flashback Records will be spinning sexy tunes into the wee hours.Of course the bar will remain open throughout the film and after. All for a measly £15.
Getting home will NOT be a problem, we aim to be finished in time for you to be able to catch the first trains homes, with no standing around time.The Rio Cinema is stupid easy to get to and from-Buses, 38, 56, 67, 76, 243, 242, 149, plus East London Line to Dalston Junction and the Overground to Dalston Kingsland all drop you off at the Rio’s doorstep and plenty of night buses back.
