Post ‘SUAPTH’ Party @ Lighthouse Cinema

Left my phone down, forgot it was filming, and this is what it captured. While the after party and general atmosphere in the Lighthouse Cinema was pretty good, for the SUAPTH screening, we had a less than ideal experience.

Not only was the entire movie in screen 2 B&W (while all other screens enjoyed the joys of a full colour experience) the sound was so out of sync that people, including us, got up and left!

We chanced our arm and went in to another screen to watch the end of the movie but damage was done at that stage.

The Lighthouse kindly offered us complimentary tickets which did soften me out a the after-party was good i really do like the Lighthouse as a Cinema/Venue so...


"On April 2nd 2011, LCD Soundsystem played its final show at Madison Square Garden. LCD frontman James Murphy had made the conscious decision to disband one of the most celebrated and influential bands of its generation at the peak of its popularity, ensuring that the band would go out on top with the biggest and most ambitious concert of its career. The instantly sold out, near four-hour extravaganza did just that, moving the thousands in attendance to tears of joy and grief, with NEW YORK magazine calling the event "a marvel of pure craft" and TIME magazine lamenting "we may never dance again."  SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS is both a narrative film documenting this once in a life time performance and an intimate portrait of James Murphy as he navigates the lead-up to the show, the day after, and the personal and professional ramifications of his decision."
