A new weekly night Up on the Roof at The Prince Of Wales in Brixton: a film club with a difference. On our refurbished terrace you can sink into a comfy deckchair, reach for the food and drink of your choice right beside you and watch a first-rate double bill screening.
Double features are a great film night experience. We link two movies together by their cast, director, genre, setting or soundtrack or any other interesting connections. The first film is an obscure, forgotten gem; the second a classic. Come for the first, come for the second or come for both.
Why are we different from a regular cinema night-out?
• The repertoire is diverse and novel
• The surroundings are relaxed, the atmosphere warm, the ambience cool
• Members only (£3 to join)
• We offer great, fresh food from our seasonal Bratwurst BBQ
• You can enjoy a drink ( check out our delicious hot buttered rum or mulled cider )during the movie
• Audience members can roam
Our opening night celebrates both Brixton and Black History Month. Sure, we could have saluted our local area by showing Marilyn Monroe walking down Brixton Water Lane in the film The Prince and the Showgirl but we can do even better then that. We’ll be screening Black Joy starring Trevor Thomas and Norman Beaton, entirely shot in and around Brixton. Plus, the Franco Rosso 1980s classic, Babylon another south London special. Both films are full of ideas and attitude, with knockout soundtracks. The perfect movies for our premier night.
