Future Cinema held a Valentines spectacular, showcasing Who Framed Roger Rabbit at the Troxy. The event opened on Valentines day and runs until February 23rd.
Just a few minutes walk away from Limehouse station you step in to an immersive cinema experience as soon as you join the que. Who framed Roger Rabbit is almost 30 years old and is a timeless film. I must’ve watched it half a dozen times when I was little and although remember iconic moments and characters such as Jessica Rabbit, there was a lot I had completely forgotten! This is where Future Cinema steps in and transports you back to 70s Brooklyn,capturing the feel of Who Framed Roger Rabbit perfectly.
As you wait to go into the Troxy, the weasels are there jumping in and out of the crowd making jokes. You are met at the entrance by someone who shakes your hand and acts as if they have known you for years but the stand out moment is when you enter the Troxy and pass through the red curtain and see that the Troxy has been transformed into the ink and paint club to perfection. White tablecloths cover over 100 round tables; there are several mini stages in places throughout the ground floor. At the front is a long narrow stage with a microphone for the performers whilst at the back is the cocktail bar serving cocktails such as the Jessica Rabbit which consists of vodka, raspberry puree, topped with Prosecco. Not forgetting the incredible food bar serving hot dawgs, pulled porker and beef in a bun.
