Time 20:45
Date 16/12/21
Price £15

An exclusive screening of this years hit film and one of the greatest genre-busting music documentaries of the millennium. “One Of My All Time Favourite Rock Docs” Mark Kermode.

 

Comedian Stewart Lee and director Michael Cumming (Brass Eye, Toast Of London) investigate a missing piece of punk history. Robert Lloyd, best known for fronting cult Birmingham bands The Prefects and The Nightingales, has survived under the radar for over four decades. But how, if at all, does Robert want to be remembered? The anti-rockumentary King Rocker weaves the story of Birmingham’s undervalued underdog autodidact into that of the city’s forgotten public sculpture of King Kong, eschewing the celebrity interview and archive-raid approach for a free-associating bricolage of Indian food, bewildered chefs, vegetable gardening, prescription medicines, pop stardom and pop art. Join us for a very special celebration of one of 2021s break-out films.

The screening will be followed by a live onstage Q&A with Stewart Lee and Michael Cumming.
