A Whole New Meaning To Batwing Sleeves...

Posted on


Future Cinema, the creators of Secret Cinema, in partnership with California Tourism, presents CALIFORNIA CLASSICS, bringing 80s wonders The Lost Boys and Top Gun to life as Canary Wharf is transformed into the sun-soaked

boardwalks and amusement parks of California this weekend.

8000 honorary Californians will be recruited into the gangs of vampire-spooked Santa Cruz (The Lost Boys, 3rd September) or enlisted into training at naval aviation school in San Diego (Top Gun, 4th September).

Audiences will treat their taste buds to authentic all-American foods, participate in water sports and taxidermy art workshops and dress the part in 80s style. And of course Rokit will be celebrating all things gothic grunge and preppy naval with its pop-up store on the boardwalk offering authentic vintage attire with bite.

"Your ego's writing cheques your body can't cash!" ...but your body looks mighty fine in these Top Gun inspired threads, L-R 60s flight jacket, £175; high waisted jeans, £35; US Air Force shirt, £15

"You'd better get yourself a garlic t-shirt buddy, or it's your funeral!" Or better yet look suitably vamp-ish in these Lost Boys-esque beauties, L-R graffiti leather jacket, £180; 80s style sunglasses, £15; black lace sweetheart dress, £55

WIN a pair of tickets to the day of your choice, worth £50! Simply visit our Lost Boys and Top Gun collections at www.rokit.co.uk and like your favourite collection on our facebook page. Winner will be selected at random from these entrants. Closing date is September 2nd at midday. No cash alternative.
