We don’t really want to publicise this as it’s getting ever-busier and we do require that sofa-for-two at the back, but you know us; we simply can’t help ourselves. And so here’s a quick missive to alert readers to the last two FREE screenings at the Zabludowicz’s ace pop-up cinema.
This season it’s all about American cult movies: a week or two back we thoroughly enjoyed Ang Lee’s 90s classic drama ‘The Ice Storm’, and on Sunday we swung by for Miranda July’s ‘Me and You And Everyone I Know’. The film itself was a little too twee for us (thanks for asking), but the hipster-heavy crowd clearly disagreed, with their hearty round of applause at the end. ‘You can see that a certain famous art college has just moved down the road,’ observed Mrs Kentishtowner wryly, as she tried to rustle up a high pony.
Wine is a snip at £2 a glass, popcorn a studentous 50p a pop (although, kids, be warned that the more mature members of the audience were getting irked at those brown paper bags rustling) – and tap water, served in a stylish jug by a stylish employee, is nada. Now that’s what we call philanthropy.
Last two screenings are both fabulous:
Sunday 4 December, 4pm
PARIS, TEXAS (1984)
Dir. Wim Wenders
Sunday 11 December, 4pm
THE LAST PICTURE SHOW (1971)
Dir. Peter Bogdanovich
