Join us in celebrating with our friends at Close-Up who have just opened their new independent cinema in Shoreditch. As other cinemas are converting to digital, Close-Up will continue to offer 16mm and 35mm reel-to-reel as well as digital projection, showcasing classic, contemporary, documentary, experimental and artists’ films. Plus, if you become a member, you can also enjoy 20% discount on cinema tickets for you and a guest, along with free unlimited access to their extensive Video Library and 10% discount in the cafe and bar.
Running from 8pm till late on Saturday 4 September 2015, there will be screenings of a selection of films throughout the night, while the door to the projection booth will be kept open so you can marvel at the two restored 35mm projectors in all their glory.
To mark the launch of the cinema Close-Up present six films by John Cassavetes during July, including Faces, Shadows, The Killing of a Chinese Bookie, A Woman under the Influence, Love Streams and, of course, Opening Night.
