'The most imaginative [way cinema is surviving the pandemic] ... brilliant... a really good idea' - Sunday Brunch, Channel 4.
We all need entertainment, and human interaction, especially at times like these. In normal circumstances White Wall Cinema would bring you both in the form of big screen movie gatherings in pop up locations all around Brighton as part of our mission (since 2015) to bring people together and keep non blockbuster cinema alive in the city. But with things being as they are, that is no longer possible, and our events have (necessarily) disappeared completely. This has left us with no income, and you with nothing to do but sit at home and ride out the pandemic on the sofa. As the only year round independent provider of cinema screenings in Brighton, we think it's important there is something other than just chain owned cinemas left in the city once this is all over, so we got to thinking, and came up with White Wall Cinema Home Service!
Scrolling through streaming services trying to find something to watch is miserable. As is not being able to have a good old chat about movies. So our new Home Service solves both problems by delivering a little White Wall Cinema magic right into your living room. Give us a donation to help us survive these trying times, and in return we will craft a fully personalised, bespoke evening of movie entertainment just for you and your family / flatmates.
After chatting with you about your favourite movies, we will hand pick a very special mystery movie from our archive that exactly suits your taste (we are famous for our accuracy on this). We will send it to you (for you to keep) with some gourmet popcorn and create a personalised online video to give the movie a special introduction. Not forgetting the best bit... a personal online get together (via video chat) to have one of those great fun post film discussions we all love so much, so we can hear your thoughts, fill you in on the movies history, and bring you fascinating info and insights into the film's production and meaning.
Take the misery out of lockdown, and put some movie mystery fun in it's place and ensure an alternative to big commercial movie houses still exists after Covid-19.
STEP 1: Make A Donation.
Make a donation to White Wall Cinema via our ticketing partner We Got Tickets and the 'Event That Never Happened' scheme (links below), that has been set up to help events promoters such as ourselves who have lost all their income overnight. It's just as easy as buying a ticket during normal times, just pick the level you can afford and what level of package you want - what you get for each level is listed below.
PLEASE NOTE: You only need to buy one "ticket" per event which is valid for everyone who lives in your household. You can buy multiples of any ticket level in order to increase your donation or to buy the Home Service experience for those in another household. If for some reason you don't want to take part in Home Service, but still want help us out, there is also straight £10 donate option).
STEP 2: Get In Touch.
Simply drop us an e-mail at email@example.com to let us know you have made a donation.
PLEASE NOTE: if you don't contact us directly via this e-mail we will not be able to start the Home Service process.
STEP 3: Personal Movie Chat.
Via an easily accessible and free video chat website (or via e-mail if you prefer), we will say hello (providing a welcome break from that lockdown isolation) and talk to you (and your partner / others in your house if they are joining in) about your favourite movies. No need to try and seem cool or clever though, we want your honest favourites! Based on a series of fun and easy questions about what you like in a movie, and perhaps what you don't, we will determine the perfect little gem of a film (that hopefully you haven't seen) that will become an instant favourite for you. In the grand tradition of White Wall Cinema's Secret Movie Club however, the choice of movie will remain a secret until it's time to watch.
STEP 4: Home Delivery.
We will deliver straight to your home (anywhere in the UK, relevant Covid-19 precautions taken) a parcel containing the mystery DVD or Blu Ray hand picked from our archive that is for you to keep and add to your collection, alongside a special packet of gourmet pop corn!
PLEASE NOTE: DVDs and Blu Rays are from our extensive archive so may be either brand new or pre-owned but will always be in good condition and ready to view. *If you don't have a Blu Ray or DVD player we can work with content from your streaming services.*
STEP 5: Custom Introduction
We'll send you a personalised link (and password) that lets you access a custom made intro video for the movie that (depending on the movie) includes amusing trailers and ads appropriate to the film you are about to watch, all centred on a personalised intro presented by us. This non spoiler introduction to the film, will provide some fun context about the movie, things to look out for while watching, and generally get you primed for your evening's entertainment.
STEP 6: Enjoy The Movie
Grab the packet of gourmet popcorn we sent you, kick back on your sofa and enjoy the mystery classic, cult, unusual, interesting or overlooked movie we sent to you.
STEP 7: Post Film Chat
And finally, the best bit... straight after the film we will schedule in a live video chat just for you (and your those in your household that watched), so we can discuss the movie, chat over all those little bits we couldn't before you had seen it, and find out what you thought about it. We will fill you in with titbits from the film's production, discuss the legacy of the film, and generally have a good old natter with you about the film's meaning, and it's place in cinema history.
