Back Room Cinema Showing: We Need To Talk About Kevin Monday 27th Feb

Monday is going to be a great night. We will be showing one of Tilda Swinton’s career highlights. A thrilling and moving film We Need To Talk About Kevin is our indie tribute for all of you.

TimeOut said about it:  ‘We Need to Talk about Kevin’ is thought-provoking, confident and fearless. It’s experimental but never alienating and horrific in all the right ways. It’s great to have Ramsay back behind the camera after too long an absence. Bring on the next one‘ five stars.

Top Juice Cancelled

This is just a small reminder that tomorrow’s Top Juice has been cancelled but it will be back soon with great talents and amazing guests so we hope to see you all. We will be posting information shortly.

Again, we apologize!
