Each night we transform Bardens Boudoir into our own midnight movie house and invite you to come and see. We'll be screening films from across the spectrum, be they avant-garde or slapstick comedy, transgressive, punk, experimental, documentary, romance or musical.
We accept all submissions and bring the best of them to our silver screen - shorts, features and anything in between. We also hand pick our own selection of new films from around the world that you just don't see anywhere else. This month, the UK premiere of a very highly anticipated documentary (details to follow very shortly). If you love films, you need to be here. If you make films, bring them along so we can show them next time. If you love popcorn, you're in luck, it's on the house.
Your night at The Pictures is capped off with bingo and performances in the intervals, then DJs and dancing til 2 at the end, plus drinks promos, free zines and posters and excellent company, all in the lavish surroundings of our boudoir cinema, with free entry. Bring a date.
