The Blues Brothers (film)

The Blues Brothers, directed by John Landis, is an iconic musical comedy film from 1980 that has an ongoing afterlife in a 2000 sequel, tours of the Blues Brothers Band and any number of tribute shows and acts. The original tells the story of Jake and Elwood’s mission from God to re-form their band and save a Catholic orphanage from closure, but is best remembered as the excuse for explosive car chases and the best of blues and soul from the likes of Aretha Franklin, Cab Calloway, Ray Charles, John Lee Hooker and James Brown, not to mention the amazing Blues Brothers Band fronted by Jake (John Belushi) and Elwood (Dan Aykroyd).

The Blues Brothers shows at Vue, StarCity at 9:30pm on Saturday 6th. Usual admission rates apply.
