KOKO, LONDON, SATURDAY 28TH JANUARY 2017

 

Way too late to be saying Happy New Year, but way too early to stop celebrating – Guilty Pleasures is back for 2017!

grrrls-end-night-2-660
Welcome to Guilty Pleasures – a club like no other.

It’s a space where the spirit of Umbrella-era Rihanna downs shots with Madonna, while Taylor Swift doesn’t stop moving to the funky funky beat with S Club 7, and Katy Perry loses her mind over the fact that Backstreet’s back, all right? Not actually, but you know what we mean. Guys, we’re all in this together.

Throw your hands in the air like you just don’t care and let that pop music course through your veins well into the night.

Desperately Seeking DISCO

So as you know, we’re having a party next week. Not just any old party with some people you didn’t really want to see, a plate of soggy sausage rolls and some pound shop balloons. HELL NO. More a cinematic spectacular full of glitz, glamma, razzle-dazzle and MADONNA on Saturday 25th August at London’s glorious Troxy!

It’s the very first cinema party from GP and we are rolling out the red carpet to salute the star of the party: Desperately Seeking Susan.

The film takes centre stage as performers, djs, dancers and more take the stage in turn to dazzle, wow and excite you until you simply cannot take it any more and unleash yourself on the dancefloor and disco dance yourself daft until morning.

So what to expect? Well for those that haven’t seen the film, you’re in for a treat. It’s Madonna’s debut on the silver screen and she doesn’t disappoint. She doesn’t exactly act either, but we don’t expect that. We want her to be sassy, wear brilliant outfits, be a bit cocky, dance a bit and just be MADONNA please.


That’s good. Keep doing that.

Besides, there’s a stand out support cast of acting excellence around her. None more so than from her co-support, Rosanna Arquette as Roberta. She goes from comfortable-but bored surburban housewife married to Gary Glass, a hot tub salesman.


Roberta and Gary in happier times.

Then after an obsession with the personal ads featuring a romance between Madonna’s Susan and her boyfriend, she goes to track down Susan in New York, but after spying her going into a shop to buy some boots, she winds up with Susan’s jacket, getting a knock on the head and then winds up thinking she is Susan.


Don’t look at the boots Roberta! That way lies head-knack and amnesia!


Oh too late. But we must say you do look better.

From then on a great big mess of jewel theifery, attempted murder, mega confusion, amateur detective play, terrible stints at being a magician’s assistant and DANCING. Just a regular Saturday night then.

So how will we be bringing this to life? In an all out multi sensory extravganza! We have food! We have drinks! We have visual delight! We have dressing up! We have it ALL!


We’ve got much tastier food on offer so you don’t need to just eat Cheez Doodles. Although they are nice

Before the film, you will be invited to take your seats (email groupbookings@guiltypleasures.co.uk to find out how to reserve a table for your group) for the pre show warm up. A bit like the Superbowl show you get in America. Like Madonna did this year. Oh WHAT a coincidence!

Said pre-film show will be a somewhat uproarious, but ultimately AMAZING show featuring some of London’s premier cabaret stars dressed as multi Madonna’s, in a catwalking, musical celebration Madonna OFF where the winning Madonna will be crowned the Queen of Madonna’s for the night. But which one will take the top prize?

Will it be Like a Virgin Madonna?

Pointy-knockered Blonde Ambition Madonna?

Gothic, spiritual Madonna?

Leotard-clad, flicky hair disco Madonna?

Or raunchy, sauce-pot Madonna?

We’ll find out on the night. But one thing’s for sure, it won’t be this one:


Boring U rated Madonna

You can dress yourself up in (my love) the 80s dressing up trash box and get that New York 1985 vibe by wearing all your clothes at once as long as they’re made of lace, net, or are stretchy, puffy, flouncy and your hair is backcombed and dried-out from over dye.

If it’s all getting too much and you need to turn to God – not unlike the good lady herself – then fear not for Father Oates will be on hand to take your confession, send you back on the road to spiritual salvation via his wise words and penance of Holy Vodka. Just don’t try and mount him a la Madge. He is a man of the cloth and should not be lead into temptation!


No humping in the booth! Jesus is watching!

Then watch the Troxy transform into Danceteria as djs Sean Rowley and Anna Greenwood play out the party in a mega discotheque of brilliance of all your favourite GP hits with an NYC 80s vibe.

So what are you waiting for? Get your tickets and get Into The Groove!

L-U-V MADONNA!

We do. Oh we really do.

So much so that on Saturday 25th August Guilty Pleasures is bringing its biggest, most ambitious and ridiculously exciting party EVER for the Guilty Pleasures Cinema Party at London’s decadent Troxy Cinema!

BUY TICKETS HERE

The party will be everything you expect from GP – razzle-dazzle djs, dancers, performers, hedonistic pop splendor and a truckload of FUN – but with the dazzling magic of the movies with a screening of Madonna’s debut acting role in the 80’s classic DESPERATELY SEEKING SUSAN.

Starring Patricia Arquette as a bored housewife obsessed with the personal ads (a Guilty Pleasure perhaps…?) her life takes a bonkers twist when she buys Madonna’s character Susan’s old jacket, suffers a nasty bump on the head and forgets who she is. We’ve all been there. From there on, she tries to piece together her life, all the time accidentally pretending to be Susan. Something some of us also may have done.


That damn jacket!

The tale takes twists and turns and presents us with a glorious fashion show in every scene and the sheer excellence Madonna. Yeah, she’s no Judy Dench, but she can’t half rock a quilted bootie and a lace shirt.


See, rocking…

After the film we get to dance the night away in the NYC discotheque to the GP cast of entertaining stars, marvel (and possibly scream) at the Many Madonnas bad look-a-likes, rummage and dress you up in the “Face it: she’s Madonna” dressing up boxes, knock back hard liquor at the bars, be amazed by the magic show and generally hang out in a Battery Park hipster style circa 1985. Or now if you live in Hackney!

Sounds good doesn’t it? No, it sounds AMAZING.

An all-out Madonna FEST where we’ll be diving in to the crazily fantastic, multi-colourful, disco-popping world of the musical icon who without, the world would be a dreadfully dull and exceptionally less brilliant place.

So join us on the red carpet as we make cinematic history this August!
