Sid & Nancy extended run (Rio cinema, From Fri Aug 5 to Thur Aug 11)


 Fri 5 Aug to Mon 8 Aug at Rio Cinema.

A chance to catch a re-issue of Alex Cox's seminal biopic SID AND NANCY, which features the eerily brilliant Gary Oldman as Sid Vicious, bass guitarist of the Sex Pistols, with Chloe Webb as his girlfriend Nancy Spungen. 1978. Sid is arrested at the Chelsea Hotel in Manhattan following Nancy's death. Dragged to a police station and questioned, he flashes back to how he first met her, an eager American groupie who came to London determined to seduce one of the band...Full of sound and fury, this is a barnstorming portrait of the punk generation and its music but also a touching love story, elevated by Oldman and Webb's outstanding performances.
