Bird’s Eye View, whose mission is to celebrate the female contribution to film and The Extraordinary Travelling film Show, a pop-up cinema showing great films in unique places, have come together to launch a unique pop-up film club at The Workshop, Vauxhall.
Not only will this bring the ‘big screen’ to an area underserved in terms of a local cinema, but also each screening is to be followed by a lively Q&A with expert speakers hosted by BEV’s Mia Bays, a Vauxhall-based Oscar winning film producer and director of Birds Eye View film charity. Tickets include a complimentary mocktail and there will be cakes and snacks from a local baker and chef – all guaranteed to make the night special.
The Vauxhall Cinema Club launch with the following season of films:
All this Panic – Thursday 18th May. This entertaining feature-length documentary is like the TV series ‘Girls’ but for real. The film takes a close look at the interior lives of a group of teenage girls as they come of age in Brooklyn.
A United Kingdom – Wednesday 14th June. Starring David Oyelowo and Rosamund Pike, this is a moving true story set in Botswana and London in 1947. The film is written and directed by Amma Assante who grew up in South London nearby, so a perfect film to show in Vauxhall.
Postcards from the Edge – Wednesday 5th July. The season ends with the hilarious and outrageous cult comedy based on the even more outrageous memoirs of Carrie Fisher. It’s shown during Pride in London; a great film to help celebrate this festival.
To make these events truly special, the screenings will be held at The Workshop, a temporary community and events space in the heart of Lambeth created and managed by regeneration specialist U+I. The 2000sqm space was once the fire engine workshops of the London Fire Brigade and is now home to charities, social and start-up enterprises and artists. It’s a unique part of Vauxhall industrial history.
Time: 7pm doors open, 8pm film starts
Address: The Workshop, 26 Lambeth High Street, Vauxhall, London, SE1 7AG
Tickets: £10 (+ booking fee) including complimentary mocktail. There is also a concession price for local residents, at £5.
