A POP UP CINEMA IN CENTRAL BRIGHTON

 WINTER SEASON - ON SALE NOW 

As restrictions ease this December following the success of our Summer and Autumn season we are now proud to present our special Winter season line-up. As ever, we present a series of specially selected film screenings with a strictly limited number of audience members, socially distanced into their own 'bubbles' with carefully thought out hygiene measures so you can enjoy a custom created big screen cinema experience in a Covid safe environment throughout December and beyond.

For more on our safety measures regarding Covid-19 visit our information page here.

 

Our programming features a collection of films that reaches further than the usual mediocre selection often associated with pop up cinema 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 one of our socially distanced events is a worthwhile, unique and memorable experience.

Doors open early for every screening so you can safely get to your seats and purchase food and drink. KEEP CHECKING BACK FOR LISTINGS UPDATES FOR THE WINTER SEASON! Tickets for each screening are not only VERY LIMITED (so we can keep our capacity low for social distancing purposes) but tickets are also cheap starting as low as £6 per person (or sometimes £4 for students!), as such they will go fast, so we suggest grabbing yours ASAP!

RESCHEDULED DATE: 7.50PM FRIDAY DECEMBER 4TH

DAVE CHAPPELLE'S BLOCK PARTY

From the director of Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind, this unique film documents comedian Dave Chappelle taking a bus of people from his hometown of Ohio to a surprise block party in Brooklyn featuring some of the greatest black music artists of their generation including Kanye West, Mos Def, Jill Scott, Erykah Baduh, The Roots, Common, John Legend and more with an almost unthinkable re-uniting of Lauryn Hill & The Fugees. A funny, sonically thrilling and (typical of Michel Gondry) inventively and vibrantly shot freewheeling celebration of great music and the spirit of community.

7.30PM SUNDAY DECEMBER 6TH

MARRIAGE STORY

Noah Baumbach, director of The Squid and the Whale and Frances Ha, delivers this masterful relationship study about a couple enduring a coast to coast divorce. A brilliant performance from Scarlett Johansson and a shatteringly powerful turn by Adam Driver compliment the brutally honest, cleverly comedic, emotionally piercing script. Among it's six Oscar nominations, six Golden Globe nominations, and five Bafta nominations came wins at all three for Laura Dern for her blisteringly sharp  role alongside Ray Liotta (Goodfellas) and Alan Alda (M.A.S.H.) who make up the films wryly observed divorce lawyer triumvirate. Observed with a true sense of maturity and compassion, don't miss this rare chance to see the nuance of this finely balanced drama on the big screen where it belongs.

7.30PM MONDAY DECEMBER 7TH

 MYSTERY MOVIE MONDAYS 

SECRET MOVIE CLUB PRESENTS -

"THE FAST POOL"

Our "Secret Movie Club" project takes a movie you most likely haven't seen before (but will instantly love) and keeps the identity of the movie a secret, until the opening credits roll. Life in the fast lane? How about life in the fast pool? Take a gamble (one we can promise you won't regret) on this brilliant mystery movie classic that oozes movie making class from every pore even as it explores a world of being down on your luck whilst upping the stakes. A  cast of greats headed up by an icon of cinema who gives a career best performance. Beautifully heartfelt, brutally honest, thrilling and fascinating at every turn this classic has lost non of it's edge and comes highly, highly recommended.

7.30PM TUESDAY DECEMBER 8TH

DUNE

With delayed release of Denis Villeneuve's (Sicario, Arrival, Blade Runner 2049) new version of Dune starring Timothée Chalamet, we instead present a special treat, a rare screening of David Lynch's (Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks, Mullholland Drive) 1984 version. Widely maligned on it's original release, it's now a cult favourite for it's baroque grandeur and unbridled ambition in this gloriously bizarre vision of a distant universe where two nobles battle over the precious 'spice melange' found on the desert planet of Arrakis. Lynch is joined many faces from his other films like Twin Peaks and Blue Velvet alongside Patrick StewartSting, and Max von Sydow and more, plus a classic score from Brian Eno and Toto(!) making Dune the ultimate guilty pleasure/art house avant-noir curio from one of the most distinctive directors in cinema history.

7.25PM WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 9TH

THE MESSENGER: THE STORY OF JOAN OF ARC

 WOMEN IN HISTORY WEDNESDAYS 

Luc Besson director of Leon, The Fifth Element, La Femme Nikita etc, tells one of the definitive stories in French history of a teenage girl from a remote village who after a 'divine vision' embarks upon a journey to defeat the world's greatest army and liberate France. A history lesson that contains actual dialogue from real transcripts, Besson is also not afraid to push past the literal to create a highly cinematic film that encapsulates the enormity of this remarkable true story. Featuring a heavyweight cast inc.  John Malkovich, Faye Dunaway and Dustin Hoffman, and Milla Jovovich's supremely dedicated central performance that brings an astonishing intensity to the screen in this sadly overlooked career best.

8.30PM FRIDAY DECEMBER 11TH

THE WARRIORS

If there ever was a definitive cult classic, The Warriors is it. A reworking of ancient greek mythology transplanted to late 70s New York, The Warriors is a highly stylised urban odyssey of a street gang (back when feathered hair and brown leather vest could still impart menace) who after being falsely accused of killing a rival gang leader must battle their way back from The Bronx to their own territory of Coney Island. What follows is a visually iconic representation of New York and a whole host of cool comic book-esque gangs such The Baseball Furies (who dress in facepaint and baseball uniforms complete with baseball bats), The Lizzies (an all female gang from Union Square), The Boppers (a Harlem gang who sport fedoras and purple satin waistcoats) and more. One of the greatest and most fun cult films of all time. 

7.30PM SUNDAY FRIDAY DECEMBER 13TH

AT ETERNITY'S GATE

Acclaimed director Julian Schnabel (The Diving Bell & The Butterfly) creates a portrait of one of art's most enigmatic characters. Based on recent ideas and findings about Van Gogh's life the film is fresh perspective on the troubled artist played to perfection by the always brilliant Willem Dafoe. Nominated for an Oscar, a Golden Globe, and the critics choice award Dafoe walked away with the top prize for acting at the Venice Film Festival. Covering the late period of Van Gogh's life the film is a lyrical sometimes troubled look at the blossoming of the great artist's technique, his personal turmoil, including his fraught relationship with fellow master Gauguin (Oscar Issac), as well as the beauty of the world that inspired him during the Dutch painters self imposed exile to Arles and Auvers-Sur-Oise, France. A big screen must for art lovers.

8PM TUESDAY DECEMBER 15TH

HONEY BOY

The narrative debut of acclaimed Israeli director Alma Har'el, she joins Shia Lebouf in 'an egoless retelling' (Variety) of Lebouf's own childhood experiences in what critic Roger Ebert termed 'a cinematic act of courage'. Echoing Jonah Hill's Mid 90's it pulls no punches about it's subjects formative experiences as a child actor in L.A. with an absent mother and his alcoholic father, played by Lebouf himself in a performance that has been dubbed a 'revelation' (Film School Rejects). At the center is rising star Noah Jupe whose effort the BFI's Sight and Sound referred to as 'the most moving child performance in years'. Throw in a "raw and furious" (Entertainment Weekly) Lucas Hedges as the older Lebouf as well as the film debut of FKA Twigs and you have 'one of the most deeply personal and cathartic films that I've ever seen' (Slashfilm).
