ABBA: THE MOVIE has been chosen as our latest THEME NIGHT.   6pm for a 7pm start.  The ticket price includes drinks and nibbles before the movie.  Come in your favourite ABBA costume.  There will be PRIZES!

They broke up in 1982, after a decade of existence and a staggering eight-year run of hits, and have not recorded new material in over 35 years – but if you’ve been to the movies in the last quarter of a century, ABBA has never really gone away. The revival is still going strong; whole generations of fans have discovered Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Agnetha Fältskog via their chart-topping hits gracing big-screen comedies and tearjerkers -  Mamma Mia!, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, not to mention The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert and Muriel’s Wedding.

ABBA: The Movie, follows an Australian country and western DJ named Ashley (Robert Hughes) in 1977 as he tries in vain to interview the group while on tour, it’s the flimsiest possible narrative on which to hang a mix of concert footage, music videos, “candid” backstage footage (filmed months later at a Stockholm hotel) and man-on-the-street interviews. It captures the feel of a country in the grip of ABBA-mania, and Ashley begins the film as an skeptic, told by his boss to get the scoop on “the hottest property on the pop scene.” He ends it as a man who literally dreams about the group.

This docu/mocku/rockumentary doubles as a time capsule, ABBA became a worldwide phenomenon.
