Below you can see our programming of a collection of films that reaches further than the usual mediocre selection often associated with summer screening events... whether it's a brand new bit of brilliant but overlooked modern cinema, a 1950s Oscar winning classic, a cult 80s horror favourite, a gritty 70s drama, or a surprising piece of international cinema, we have hand picked all our films to make sure every Socially Distanced Summer Screen event is a worthwhile, unique and memorable experience. Events are still being added and the list below will continue to go on sale / be updated and grow over the following hours, weeks and days until events are listed all the way up to September 6th so keep checking back!

Doors open early for every screening so you can enjoy a socially distanced drink in our garden before either heading into the auditorium for your film or settling down outside for cinema al fresco! We are running every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday all the way until September 6th, so lots more films will be added yet. Tickets for each screening are not only VERY LIMITED (so we can keep our capacity low for social distancing purposes) but tickets are also very cheap at only £5, £6 or £7.50 per person depending on the event, so we suggest grabbing yours now!

THE ROOM

Quite simply the best/worst film ever made, it's astonishing how something so bad can be so deeply entertaining. The result of one man's misguided dream, this ill conceived passion project of writer / actor / director (we use those terms loosely) Tommy Wiseau is so bizarrely entertaining The Room will make you will make you question the very nature of entertainment itself. Now the subject of an award winning Hollywood feature film by James Franco, and the subject of endless memes, seeing the original uncut film with an audience is a can't miss experience.

ROPE

 

More than six decades before movies like Birdman and 1917 were showing us the wonder of the "single take movie", the master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock was already using the technique to astonishing effect in his legendary cinematic experiment Rope. A deliciously dark and devious tale of two Harvard graduates who believe they have planned the perfect murder, Hitchcock's Rope is as much a technical marvel as it is a fantastically fun macabre game of cat and mouse. Enhanced by cracking performances from it's stars (including Jimmy Stewart) and it's daring homo-erotic subtext, it's a rare chance to see this overlooked masterpiece on the big screen.

9PM SUNDAY JULY 26TH

MISTRESS AMERICA

 

Co-written by it's star Greta Gerwig (director of Ladybird & Little Women), and the films director Noah Baumbach (director of Frances Ha & Marriage Story) Mistress America is another gem of a collaboration between Hollywood's indie movie power couple. Naive young college freshman Tracy Fishman arrives in New York and seeks out her somewhat devil may care soon-to-be stepsister Brooke (Gerwig). Gerwig's performance solidifies her as one of this generations best comedic actresses (hailed as a modern day Diane Keaton) as Baumbauch's dark wit and Gerwig's charm combine to make the perfect cocktail for this offbeat, casually profound female neo-screwball comedy.
