After the death of David Bowie on 10th January, tributes have been paid across the borough to the legendary performer. Now, locals will have the opportunity to watch one if his most memorable on-screen performances through a charity screening of the film Labyrinth.
Labyrinth was directed and co-written by Jim Henson, who was the creator of The Muppets. The family fantasy film incorporates a mixture of puppetry and live action to bring the story to life.
Bowie had a leading role in the classic film from the 1980s and also performed music on the soundtrack.
The story revolves around a teenage girl called Sarah, played by Jennifer Connelly, who wishes that her baby brother Toby will disappear. Toby is then kidnapped by goblins under the command of Jareth the Goblin King, played by Bowie, and Sarah has 13 hours in which to navigate a fantastical labyrinth and rescue him.
The Odeon Cinema on Beckenham High Street is putting on a special charity screening this Thursday. The film starts at 8:15pm, and all the proceeds from tickets will go to charity.
Advance ticket sales for the film have been going so well that the cinema has had to open up a second screen. This will give fans the opportunity to celebrate his achievements and bring the film to a whole new audience.
Tickets for the special performance are available online through the Odeon website or at the box office.
Will you be going to see Labyrinth? Are there any other Bowie performances that you would like to see put on to celebrate his life?
