Join the wandering band of movie mavericks for a special film screening
How many ways are there to see a movie? Well, when you add movie magicians The Nomad Cinema into the conversation, the possibilities are endless. Nomad Cinema have no fixed home: they journey from venue to venue, always finding fresh pastures to screen cult classics and old favourites. For this one, get ready for Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette. Join the Nomad on the lawns of the Queen's House at the National Maritime Museum for a very royal occasion. Sofia Coppola takes the unique eye she cast over alienated Americans in Japan in Lost In Translation and teenage girls in The Virgin Suicides, and tells the tale of one of the most notorious figures in history: Marie Antoinette, the French queen with an alleged contempt for the poor and a taste for the finer things in life. In classic Coppola style, Marie Antoinette possesses an all-star cast, riotously anachronistic soundtrack and dazzling scenes of food, shoes, clothes and wigs. The evening will include a performance from the London Oriana Choir, one of the city’s leading singing groups. If only all history lessons could be this fun. Certificate: 12A. Running time: 2 hours. Fully accessible. Food and drink available to purchase. Picnics with alcohol permitted. Tickets include a complimentary bottle of Meantime beer. No glassware. Doors open: 7:15pm.
