‘Last Night In Soho’ To Open Academy Museum This Month

Edgar Wright’s latest horror feature will headline the red-carpet opening of the new Academy Museum in Los Angeles later this month.

Last Night in Soho–which launched at film festivals in Venice and Toronto last month–will be the first film to grace the museum Oct. 25, according to a report on Deadline. The psychological thriller will open exclusively in theaters on Halloween weekend, Oct. 29.

Wright is expected to attend the premiere, along with stars Thomasin McKenzie and Anya Taylor-Joy and co-screenwriter Krysty Wilson-Cairns. The film will be shown in the brand-new David Geffen Theater inside the museum, and an after-party is planned for the rooftop terrace.

The Focus Features film follows Eloise (McKenzie), an aspiring fashion designer, who is mysteriously able to slip back into 1966 London and into the body of her singing idol, Sandie (Taylor-Joy).

While in Sandie’s body, Eloise enters a romantic relationship, but finds that “the glamour of 1960s London is not what it appears to be–and the past and present fall apart with shady and horrifying consequences.”

Wright–who directed and co-wrote the feature–counts Shaun of the Dead (2004) and Baby Driver (2017) among his genre successes. The filmmaker said he has always been “fascinated by horror films and genre films.” These movies, he added, have always been “something I’ve wanted to watch and wanted to make.”
