International Premiere

Sunset Strip. The name alone conjures up images of decadence and excess, of drinking, partying, gambling, drug taking and illicit sex. Immortalised on both screen and vinyl, Slash ran away at six years old to The Strip; Bugsy Siegel, John Wayne, Elizabeth Taylor, and Hugh Hefner all lived there, while Kelly Osbourne lost her virginity and John Belushi and River Phoenix their lives there. It was the street of sins. And people loved it.

From humble beginnings as a dusty little road, capitalized on by a Frenchman who knew that prohibition was about to be repealed the strip climbed to the heady but chic glory days of the 40s and 50s, dripping with movie stars, strippers, gangsters, hustlers and nightclub owners From there it turned to the sex and drugs and rock n roll lifestyles of the myriad of musicians, like The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, and Led Zeppelin, who exploded into town in the 1960s.

Here a host of famous names – including Johnny Depp, Mickey Rourke, Keanu Reeves, Ozzy & Sharon Osbourne – line-up to revere and extol the magic, nostalgia and mythology of the one and a half neon-lit mile that links Hollywood to Beverly Hills. This is a vibrant, quick moving and eclectic piece of art, oozing with stories and to be enjoyed as a sumptuous, sensory guilty pleasure. Just like The Strip itself.
