Ever wanted to visit one of Soho’s private member clubs? Well here is your excuse. West End Film Club will be returning to the luxurious surroundings of Century Club on Monday 19 August for a screening of THE LOOK OF LOVE, starring Steve Coogan as Paul Raymond.
The story of Paul Raymond goes like this: After starting his show business career as a mind-reader in a cabaret act, Paul Raymond went on to become Britain’s richest man and a modern King Midas. With an entrepreneurial eye and a realisation that sex sells, he began building his empire of gentleman’s clubs, porn magazines and nude theatre – provoking outrage and titillation in equal measure.
Raymond’s personal life was as colourful as his revue shows. His marriage to Jean, a nude dancer and choreographer, ended in a difficult divorce when he met Fiona – a glamour model who became the famous pin-up star of his magazines and shows. His daughter Debbie was the true love of his life, his business partner and heir to his empire – until her tragic and untimely death aged 36. Three weeks later Raymond was named Britain’s richest man and his fortune put at 1.5billion.
Century has just completed a major refurbishment, complete with a brand new screening room! Guests will have direct access to a private rooftop bar, so guests can enjoy drinks before or after the film with stunning views across London!
