Battle of Soho (2016) Full Movie Plot Summary:

In November 2014 the Iconic club Madame Jojos closed its doors. This event being interpreted by many as the death knell of Soho. The closure of this historic venue which premiered some of Londons most bizarre, daring and offbeat nightlife for more than half a century is seen by many as an unprecedented cultural catastrophe. In a draconian move by Westminster Madame Jojos liquor license had been taken away under the excuse of a violent incident which had occurred there. Over 12 gay and straight venues have been closed in recent years. Not the least of which include South Londons celebrated Royal Vauxhall Tavern (which was sold in 2014), and what remain are now at risk. There have also been closures in other cities such as Brighton and Manchester, two major artistic hubs; but it is in London where the issue has become most serious.

The gentrification of Soho affects the LGBT community and its Drag Queen sub-culture, but the cabaret atmosphere of the entire neighborhood in enormous ways. This active pursuit to destroy a bubbling and vibrant part of the citys heart is viewed by many as an atrocity akin to turning the lights off on Broadway. An active movement to bring a halt to this disaster has begun to unfold with one organization after another emerging to fight for Soho. Organizations made up of citizens and celebrities have sprung up to combat this onslaught. Will they win this battle and save Soho?

THE BATTLE OF SOHO seeks to document and explore the history, events, and people that make up the elements of this ongoing cultural catastrophe.
