Event News

Cigarette Burns Cinema presents a rare screening of Jeff Lieberman’s 1978 cult classic at London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts on Thursday 29th May, 2014.

“When several old school friends start losing their hair and becoming crazed homicidal maniacs, there must be a connection. But what?"

Writer-director Jeff Lieberman throws down a Cronenberg style mystery thriller, mixing in socio political elements in a post war suburban America, politicians with dark pasts, side dealing doctors, and a hero who repeatedly finds himself in rather awkward predicaments. Blue Sunshine is a trip, from the first scene to the climatic final mall-based disco-tastrophe.”

Presented in 35mm, and with an introduction from STARBURST scribe Jon Towlson, author of Subversive Horror Cinema: Countercultural Messages of Films from Frankenstein to the Present.

8.40pm, Institute of Contemporary Arts, The Mall, London, SW1Y 5AH

Tickets available now from the ICA website:
