British Film Institute Honours Elvis

On August 16th, the British Film Institute (BFI) will pay tribute to Elvis at the BFI South bank in London with an Elvis themed evening, featuring a screening of Jailhouse Rock, proceeded by an illustrated (and animated) lecture by Adrian Wooton,  CEO of Film London, Elvis aficionado, and the man responsible for bringing Sam Phillips to the UK for the first time.

In his stellar 22-year career, Elvis Presley was regarded as the King of Rock'n'Roll, and the most popular singer
the world had ever seen. But now, 30 years after his death, it is easy to forget how important to that career his 30-
plus movies were.

In this commemorative talk, liberally illustrated with clips from the King's best flicks, Adrian Wootton (Elvis aficionado and adviser to Turner Classic Movies on their current Elvis film season) will recount the history of Elvis's extensive career on the silver screen.


Elvis is mean and moody in this rags-to-riches story of an ex-con turned pop star. Made at the height of his 50s fame, Jailhouse Rock was am attempt by MGM to assimilate Presley's rock'n'roll persona into the more conventional trappings of a Hollywood musical. It has a great soundtrack, featuring some classic Leiber and Stoller songs; the title track provides one of the most famous set pieces in rock'n'roll film history.

Joint ticket available for �12.50, conc �9.25 (BFI Members pay �1 less) For NFT tickets, book online at:
