Movie Night: Pirate Radio

April 13th, 2011 by WLOY Staff

This Thursday April 14 WLOY is hosting another Movie Night in the Reading Room. This time, we’ll be showing the 2009 comedy, Pirate Radio. Directed and written by Richard Curtis, the film’s ensemble cast features Philip Seymour Hoffman, Bill Nighy, Rhys Ifan, Nick Frost, and Kenneth Branagh. Set in 1966, Pirate Radio follows the journey of one boat’s diverse crew that broadcasts rock and pop music to the United Kingdom under a pirate radio station called “Radio Rock.” British authorities will attempt to shut this illegal station down, but it takes a lot of effort to shut off the music for this rambunctious, seafaring company.

WLOY will also be giving away tickets to a series of upcoming shows at Ramshead Live, so make sure to stop by the Reading Room at 9PM!
