Film Preview: Who Killed Nancy?, 22 February, Cameo Cinema, Edinburgh

16 Feb

Edinburgh’s Cameo cinema will screening Who Killed Nancy? on Sunday 22 February at 3.30 pm,  followed by a Q&A with the Director Alan G Parker.

On October 12th 1978 Nancy Spungeon, an ex-prostitute, sometimes stripper and heroin addict, was found dead in a bathroom at the Chelsea Hotel in New York.

Nancy also happened to be the girlfriend of the Sex Pistols’ bassist Sid Vicious, who was quickly accused of her murder. Less than 6 months later, he died of a heroin overdose and the case was closed.

The death of Sid and Nancy has passed into rock legend and has only added to the controversial and notorious image of the Sex Pistols and punk music.

At the request of Sid’s mother, who committed suicide in 1996, rock author and punk expert Alan Parker has devoted himself to discovering WHO KILLED NANCY? By interviewing 182 people and re-examining NYPD evidence, he reveals what really happened that night in room 100.

    I saw it last night at a special screening in Glasgow. It was a fantastic piece of work, really thought provoking. Alan Parker is passionate, committed and obviously very talented indeed.
