Spike Lee ‘Do The Right Thing’ 25th Anniversary Celebration @ Rio Cinema
Jun 21 @ 1:15 pm – Jun 22 @ 1:00 am
Spike Lee 'Do The Right Thing' 25th Anniversary Celebration @ Rio Cinema | London | United Kingdom

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the classic Spike Lee film, Thenublk and We Are Parable have joined forces to present an event that will take you back to Bed-Stuy on the hottest day of the year in 1989!

The screening, taking place on the 21st June at 1.15pm at the Rio in Dalston, will be accompanied with an exclusive block party that will recreate the iconic block where the film’s action takes place, complete with dancers, pizza and chalk murals.

With DJs from Amplifed providing old school beats from 4pm in Shoreditch’s Shutterbug, we’ll be celebrating the film until the early hours.

Prizes will be given to the best dressed individual who captures the spirit of ‘Do The Right Thing’ as well as an exclusive dance off to the iconic “Fight The Power” by Public Enemy.

Bring up to 3 items of quality clothing you no longer wear and swap them for someone else’s unwanted garments.

You’ll be given tokens on the night for your items. If you really want an extra garment, you can always buy additional tokens.

Only bring clothes you are proud to pass on please; we want everyone to get back what they give at our events.

We are also asking people to refrain from bringing underwear and jewellery for obvious reasons.

If you bring shoes, we’re going for average sizes 4-7 and please only bring 1 pair out of your 3 items, just so it’s not a shoefest!

Lets put some conscience into our closets!
