A song from Cilla Black and some flashing lights from a French bistro summon a little dreamy 1960s magic in this scene from “Last Night in Soho,” a thriller by the director Edgar Wright.

Thomasin McKenzie stars as a fashion student with ’60s obsessions who is, as Wright puts it, “supernaturally switched on.”
