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 Orlando. Join the Nomad at the National Maritime Museum for Sally Potter's awesome adaptation which – despite being made over 20 years ago – says so much about topical gender issues in 2016. Orlando is a film in which the protagonist – played to perfection by Tilda Swinton – goes to sleep in the 16th century as a man, and wakes as a woman. Orlando follows Swinton's apparently ageless character through the following decades, as she comes to terms with her feminine life. In sumptuous setting and with wonderful costume, Potter creates a world where all the details matter. The evening will include a performance from the London Oriana Choir, one of the city’s leading singing groups. Certificate: PG. Running time: 1 hour 33 minutes. 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.
