Cinema While-U-Shop!

Posted on

This double whammy of Bank Holiday weekends courtesy of Easter (thanks Jesus) and the Royal Wedding (thanks Kills - the new Brangelina style mash-up of Kate & Wills) may prove to be a whole lot of fun BUT by the time you start to sober up on Monday you may find yourself wandering the East End in a scene not far removed from The Walking Dead, populated by hipster zombies with hangovers the size of Westminster Abbey...

So why not wind down from all that overindulgence with some celluloid for the soul in the shape of Movie Mayday, which celebrates 10 years of the East End Film Festival!

Head to Rokit's Brick Lane store for cinema while you shop! We will be showing World Cinema Shorts all day, as one of 88 East End venues taking part in the event, which is a massive celebration of all things cinema, with hundreds of FREE screenings, cinema trails, projections, live music, quizzes, filmmaking competitions, and site-specific events in every nook and cranny of London's East End (we think we're a cranny but we're not entirely sure...)And to whet your appetite for all things silver screen we've picked our top cinema inspired wares available online...

Run Forrest Run... to the Rokit website where you can pick up this awesome table tennis set (£20). Who knows where you may end up: the Olympics, 'Nam, the world's your oyster (or shrimp fishing boat)

Get Carter! No wait, get this pop art inspired canvas print (£100) featuring one of cinema's most iconic images, as interpreted by Mark Lomas of Rokit Designer's Guild.

Or how about a starry eyed surprise in the form of this rare original 1977 Star Wars t-shirt (£65)?

Make ours a White Russian... And we'll be drinking it in Big Lebowski style wearing this classic bowling shirt in a fetching shade of salmon pink (£35).

Embrace the teen dreams of yesteryear with this 80s Dirty Dancing fabric poster (£20) featuring the dreamy Mr Swayze in some oh-so-casually undone dungarees!

The East End Film Festival runs in venues across East London from 27th April - 2nd May.
