Rudeboy: The Story of Trojan Records


Friday 29 March 2019 - Saturday 30 March 2019

Coming Soon

PBS and Thornbury Picture House presents the Melbourne cinema premier of Rudeboy: The Story of Trojan Records, a superb visual and musical account of the iconic reggae label and the subculture it created.

Thornbury Picture House is putting on two special screenings, both with a pre-show DJ set & film introduction from Blue Juice’s Mohair Slim - an expert on Jamaican music culture. It’s a film about the love affair between Jamaican and British youth culture told through the prism of one of the most iconic labels in the history of black music, Trojan Records.

Combining archive footage, interview and drama, Rudeboy tells the story of the label by placing it at the heart of a cultural revolution that unfolded in the council estates and dance floors of late 60s and early 70s Britain, as immigration and innovation transformed popular music and culture. A cast of legendary artists including Lee “Scratch” Perry, Toots Hibbert, Ken Boothe, Neville Staple, Marcia Griffiths, Dave Barker, Dandy Livingstone, Lloyd Coxsone, Pauline Black, Derrick Morgan and more bring the sounds, stars and stories to life.

With limited screenings, don’t miss your chance to see this uplifting & award-winning documentary in the intimate surrounds of the Thornbury Picture House.

Proudly presented by PBS 106.7fm.
