Upcoming: QA with Jamie Foreman & screening of East End '80's classic Empire State

Empire StateBefore Guy Ritchie, before Danny Dyer the Long Good Friday met Mona Lisa in the highly stylised and critically acclaimed eighties clubland thriller Empire State (18) and to commemorate it's launch on Blu-ray and DVD there will be a special screening at the Genesis Cinema (Mile End) that will pack a punch. Director Ron Peck and actor Jamie Foreman (Layer Cake, Ironclad) will appear for an exclusive QA after the screening screening. They will also be signing Blu-ray/DVDs available for purchase on the night.

A British Screen Film Finance/Film Four production from cult British director Ron Peck (Night Hawks/Fighters), Empire State is a perfect mix of gangster action and the high camp of the eighties East End club scene at The Empire State nightclub in London’s newly developed Docklands, a place where disparate lives intersect. Illusory, dangerous and glamorous, it is both the playground of the rich, and an escape from the poverty and squalor of the toughest reaches of the city. The Empire State is also the arena for a fierce struggle between the hard men who for decades ran the East End, and the new breed of racketeers. They’re prepared to do anything to get control, and the fight for power will end with one of the most brutal orgies of violence the East End has ever seen…

Against the backdrop of gathering menace, Chuck, an American with £3 billion to spend, toys with potential investments, while a young boy, Pete, comes to London to find his friend, who has disappeared in the entrails of the Empire State…

With inspired casting including Ray McAnally, a young Jamie Foreman, Martin Landau, Cathryn Harrison, Perry Fenwick plus an early screen appearance from Sadie Frost, you can relive the mayhem of eighties East End London in all its dirty glory, with a glorious soundtrack featuring music from New Order, Jimmy Somerville and Yello.
