Further to the recent fast sell-out for the screening of ‘A STRANGE HOUR IN BUDAPEST’ in Stockholm at Bio Rio on November 11th, we have good news!  After much wheeling & dealing, we have managed to set up two further screenings on the same evening in Salong 4 - a specifically designed VIP screening lounge with bar. The film will be presented in Salong 4 at 5pm and at 8pm. This is a unique alternative option to view Recoil’s film at the ONLY lounge of its type in Sweden.

Located in the Bistro Barbros right next door to Bio Rio, the Salon is a cross between your living room and a cinema – a fully equipped screening facility with 5.1 surround sound catering for 35 people. The venue

offers three options for seating : Floor chairs, Sofa or Bar table. Each seat gives you access to a refrigerated mini-bar for the duration (before leaving the salon, you check out and pay your bar bill). Seating is unnumbered – select yours when you arrive – so we recommend getting there early. 

Tickets are strictly limited due to the capacity. If you were smart enough to have left your details on our waiting list, we have already contacted you offering the first opportunity to snap these tickets up!  They will disappear in no time so be quick. 

Full details for the evening are below. Here is the link to purchase right now : http://fhp.nu/recoil

if you want to combine your cinema experience with a drink in the BIOBAR or a meal in the BISTRO BARBRO, check out :   www.bar-bro.se/boka-bord/ 


The full evening will feature Q & A sessions & discussions hosted by Alan about the ‘Selected Events’ tour and film project, plus two Meet & Greet sessions. 

The 35 people who attend Salong 4’s VIP screening 1 will receive their own personal Q & A with Alan immediately after the screening – a very intimate affair! Be assured, despite the extra simultaneous screenings, there will be time for everyone to get items signed, get a photo and so on – and for sale at the cinema, we have a very limited amount of deluxe tour editions of the Blu-ray up for grabs!  See www.store.recoil.co.uk for full product details.

Says Alan “The interest in Scandinavia has frankly gone through the roof, and we are only too happy to add these additional screenings so that everyone can get a chance to see the film. Thank you Sweden for your phenomenal support.”

These events accompany Recoil’s Blu-ray release of the full concert film, directed by Attila Herkó. The Scandinavian Recoil presentations are being produced in conjunction with music and home theatre electronics chain Hi-Fi Klubben (Look out for exclusive competitions from them which includes free tickets).

 Recoil Screening
Recoil Screening Stockholm

Rio is one of Stockholm’s only surviving single screen cinemas from the 1940s. The cinema was uniquely preserved after a grant was received in 2009 in order to restore and rebuild much of the old environment. Full praise must go to the cultural organisation FHP (Folkets Hus och Parker) for stepping in and reviving the venue. Renovation, installation of digital projectors with the option for 3D film and live link ups to New York’s Metropolitan Opera, plus a bursting film programme aimed directly at increased audience engagement all ensued.Coupled with a wonderful cafe, a salon with bar, sofa and screens, luminous ceiling, gold curtain and beautiful lighting throughout, Rio’s classic ’40’s style offers us a glimmer of hope for the way things should be. A real palace for cinema, and not just another multiplex supermarket.
