Wednesday, a back to the Future Cinema invasion

David Hemmings and Veruschka von Lehndorff in Blow-Up

London in the ’60s was one of those places and brief moments in time that we think almost compares to modern-day Brooklyn when it comes to ‘cool’. It was a swingin’, mod-wearing time—an era so many of us would have loved to live through. And this Wednesday, we might get a pretty good taste. Future Cinema, the British event company behind feats of live, immersive, multimedia cinema, has crossed the pond for the first time (straight to Brooklyn) with one of its extravagant creations: Antonioni’s iconic 1966 classic Blow-Up, tomorrow night, Jun. 30, at Shangri-La Studio in Greenpoint.

What’s in store at this thing? Only a re-created English pub, screaming girls, fashion shoots, live music and, of course, the film.The 8 p.m. screening is free, but register on EventBrite. And remember to dress in your 60s-best and practice your accent for the after-film 60s-fashion scene-inspired-party.

Shangri-La Studio, 100 Sutton St. between Nassau and Norman Aves., Greenpoint.
