A tribute to a legend
Situated in the heart of East London, Pillow Cinema have transformed the rooftop of SNAP Studios, overlooking Shoreditch Park, into a cosy space filled with fatboy bean bags. They ’ll be screening a great range of films, so come and join them for the loveliest, comfiest, cosiest cinema experience this side of a fluffy cloud. For this one prepare for Asif Kapadia's biopic Amy. Kapadia's documentary follows the six-time Grammy-winner Amy Winehouse, showcasing previously unseen archive footage to tell the London performer's tragic story in her own words. As riveting as it is sad, Amy is a powerfully honest look at the twisted relationship between art and celebrity and the lethal spiral of addiction. Not to be missed. "It's Amy's words, her music, her voicemails, her home videos, her friends, her family, her tormentors, and her timeless incandescence. Look, listen and weep." – Rolling Stone "What makes Asif Kapadia's documentary a devastating don’t-miss dazzler — like the lady herself — is the way he lays out her story without editorialising." – Rolling Stone Certificate 15.
