A fundraising tribute to Bromley’s music legend David Bowie raised more than £2,000 last week.
More than 200 film goers attended the charity screening, which saw two screens at the Odeon Cinema in High Street, Beckenham, opened up to screen Bowie’s performance in the 1986 film hit.
The cinema’s general manager, Steve Humphrey’s said: “When you go down the high street and see all the tributes to him, I knew doing a special screening was right, we needed to do this.
“I’d like to thank Georgina Skinner, our cinema host, who was the inspiration for getting Labyrinth on screen at Odeon Beckenham, she also did a lot of local marketing to create awareness of the event, helping to bring in the guests.”
The screening was held on Thursday January 28, with all of the funds raised on the night donated to Cancer Research UK.
