Film Night at the Museum: 11th April

Come and join us after hours this Easter for Film Night at the Museum where we will be showing the cult classic The Blues Brothers.

After his release from prison, Jake (John Belushi) reunites with his brother, Elwood (Dan Aykroyd), collectively known as the "Blues Brothers." Jake's first task is to save the orphanage the brothers grew up in from closing, by raising $5,000 to pay back taxes. The two are convinced they can earn the money by getting their old band back together. However, after playing several gigs and making a few enemies, including the police, the brothers face daunting odds to deliver the money on time.

Our Star Café will be serving cinema style snacks and drinks (including alcoholic beverages).
