Join us for a special screening of Dance Craze. 

This legendary concert film captures the best of 2 Tone Records, the iconic label that emerged from Coventry in 1979 to release the best of the British ska revival. 

Featuring: Bad Manners, The Beat, The Bodysnatchers, Madness, The Selecter and The Specials. Director Joe Massot (‘The Song Remains the Same’) and acclaimed cinematographer Joe Dunton filmed 2 Tone bands at various venues over the course of 1980, resulting in an incredible document of the sheer force and energy of the musicians and fans from one of the most exhilarating post punk scenes. Dance Craze has now been newly restored to 4K from 70mm materials with a brand new Dolby Atmos sound mix by the British Film Institute in collaboration with Chrysalis Records. 


Relive this electrifying movement at our film screening at Oxford House.
