Event details

The beloved cinematic version of Sholem Aleichem’s ultimate shtetl experience is back for one merry screening in the former Jewish heartland of London – or more specifically, the Rio Cinema in Dalston. Expect singing with your fellow viewers (lyrics on screen), dancing in the aisles and fancy dressing (optional) as the story of poor milkman Tevye, who struggles to adapt to changing times, unfolds on the big screen. Winner of the Best Ever Jewish Film award at the 2018 UK Jewish Film Festival, Fiddler, like the Haggadah, is a story one can never tire of, so make sure you come to celebrate it with us. Jewish street food will be served during the interval.

Introduced by West End Actor Nathan Taylor and with Philip Sallon, style guru and New Romantic pioneer.

Screening as part of BFI Musicals! The Greatest Show on Screen, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery, BFI Film Audience Network and ICO. bfimusicals.co.uk
