After getting inside, we were in huge part of Hackney Downs park, cordoned off and turned into a recreation of Kellerman's Resort. The Staff Quarters, Johnny's cabin, the grand ballroom, bandstands, pitches for sports and, of course, a large area in front of a giant screen.

There was so much to see and do. I went with the beauties Jeni and Bethan and we messed about in beach huts, ate tasty food and drank Kellerman's cocktails while the sun slowly went down. It was lovely.

We all went as Penny in one of the earlier scenes, where she's wearing a cute gypsy top and some high waisted trousers. We couldn't quite face the 80s does 60s hair though!
In this photo you can marvel at the difference in colour between my arm and my midriff ;)
As with all Future Cinema adventures, there were roaming actors playing all the parts throughout the evening. After we settled in to watch, there were a few more surprises. There was Baby's sister singing Hula Hana and the terrible 'stand-up comedian'.
During the movie, key scenes were also played out in real life....
The scene at Johnny's chalet
And of course... the lift! This is a second lift, I didn't manage to capture the first!
Thank you as ever to Future Cinema for having me, it was truly delightful. Nobody puts The Vintage Mafia in a corner!
