Back in the late 1990s, British comedy ‘The Full Monty’ was famous for its scenes of unemployed male Sheffield steelworkers getting their kit off during a dance routine. Now, 17 years later, and on the eve of a new play based on the film, some of the cast and crew will gather in London for a special one-off reunion screening to tell the story behind the making of the film.
Joining cast members Hugo Speer and Emily Woff on Tuesday March 18 will be writer Simon Beaufoy (who went on to write the Oscar-winning ‘Slumdog Millionaire’), director Peter Cattaneo and several others who helped to make this British film such a hit. The event is being moderated by Time Out’s film editor Dave Calhoun and has been organised as a fundraiser for the London Film School ahead of its exciting move from Covent Garden to the Barbican. Audience members will be permitted to keep their clothes firmly on.
‘The Full Monty’ plus Q&A is at 6.30pm on Tuesday February 18 at the Ciné Lumière, find out more here.
