Recently retro: Yes, the nineties are now vintage

A random fact to chill your bones: That ‘70s Show, Fox’s ‘period sitcom’ starring Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, first aired in 1998, 18 years after the Seventies ended. If an equivalent show were to air today, it would be called That ‘90s Show, as 18 years have passed since 1995.

Feel like an old fogey? Drown your sorrows at one of these tribute nights, celebrating decades so seemingly recent to TNT that we’re comforting ourselves with the word ‘retro’, as opposed to ‘fucking ages ago’.

    
Seventies: Carwash

Club Aquarium on Old Street churns out the Seventies cheese at Carwash every Saturday night, encouraging flamboyant fancy dress and cranking up the ‘wet and wild’ thanks to its in-club pool and Jacuzzi (so don’t forget to pack your swimsuits). 


Eighties: Reflex

This City bar is dedicated entirely to the era of truly terrifying haircuts, spinning decade-specific tunes ‘til 4am on Friday and Saturday nights. Dressing the part is appreciated and May 31 even sees a special ‘Hawaiian Shirt Party’. The house’s signature Cheeky Vimto Partini will probably make all of this seem like a good idea. 

 

Nineties: I Love The '90s

Head to the Barfly in Camden on May 26 for an epic ‘I Love The ‘90s vs Silent Disco’ night. There’s Nineties pop, rock, hip-hop and Britpop downstairs, and a silent disco upstairs if it all gets a bit much. Regular Nineties nights are at Camden’s The Jazz Cafe, with some drinks just £2.40. Fresh.

3 Reasons to see The Great Gatsby

The best 3D since Avatar:  Baz Luhrmann’s latest opus, wrapping in December 2011 and then undergoing reshoots and more than a year in production, opened to mixed reviews. But one thing the critics agreed on was the top-notch 3D, adding extra pop to the director’s signature lavish style. 

It's make or break for Baz Aussie Luhrmann has traded on his boldly cartoonish visuals ever since he blew up Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet into a sexy romp for the MTV set. But there are murmurs the director is becoming a one trick pony with this outing, sacrificing story for too much over-the-top pomp.     

Leonardo DiCaprio in his prime He still looks like a pubescent lesbian, but Leo impresses in every role, and there’s no reason to think his Gatsby will be any different. His character’s entrance alone has hogged column inches.
