Starting this May, the Vauxhall Cinema Club will be bringing the world to Vauxhall through a unique pop-up cinema experience.
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 in 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, supported by funding from Film London, is showing:
A United Kingdom
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. Show will be followed by a discussion by Mia Bays.
To make this event 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.
Tickets are £10 in advance, £12 on the door, £5 for locals (+ booking fee) for film and complimentary mocktail.
The Workshop, 26 Lambeth High Street SE1
