Special Barking screening for Bo66y movie

Last night The Broadway Theatre in Barking paid tribute to West Ham United and England legend Bobby Moore with a special screening of Bo66y Moore – The Movie.

The new biopic, which celebrates 50 years since England won the World Cup, premiered at Wembley Stadium last week, and has received widespread praise.

All proceeds from the special screening have gone to The Moore Family Foundation, which strives to provide life-changing opportunities for some 16,000 students in the local boroughs.

Roberta Moore, Bobby’s daughter attended the screening, as did the film’s producer Matthew Lorenzo.

Speaking ahead of the event, Leader of Barking and Dagenham Council, Cllr Darren Rodwell, said: “Bobby was a Barking boy as well as an England and West Ham legend.  This screening kick starts our celebrations of the 50th anniversary of England’s world cup win.

“Just as Hammers’ fans can claim West Ham won the world cup – Barking and Dagenham can say we helped raise the Jules Rimet trophy too!”
