We are pleased to announce that following our risk assessment and putting into place some additional measures we will be hosting 2 member-only screenings during the Christmas holiday period. These are:

Monday 21 December – 2pm – Entrance by booking only

FILM: The Rhythm Section (2020)

Dir: Reed Morano  15, US / UK, Thriller, 109mins

A film that has already disappeared without a trace, despite only be-ing released earlier this year. We would ask you to consider why, as to our eyes this is a fascinating expansion of the film universe that the James Bond spy thrillers exist in. It features a powerfully physical performance from Blake Lively as Stephanie, a woman whose family has been killed in an airline crash. Having collapsed in to drug addiction and prostitution, she is visited by a journalist who claims the airline crash was an act of terrorism. Relating her recovery to unearthing the truth about her family Stephanie is animated by vengeance to find her family’s killers.

Wed 23 December – 2pm – Entrance by booking only

FILM: A different nativity: Tokyo Godfathers (2003)

 Dir: Satoshi Kon 15, Jap, Anime, 92mins
An Alternative Christmas Screening: Kon’s Christmas nativity portrays individuals at the edge of society being brought together in a touching adventure between three homeless people in Tokyo: estranged alcoholic Gin, bereft transwoman Hana and teenage runaway Miyuki, who together find an abandoned baby on Christmas Eve. In their attempts to find out the providence of the child and reunite it with its parents the three find themselves involved in a series of events that take them to the heart of Tokyo’s underworld. With Subtitles.
