The first ever "accidental" all-American hero
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. A movie that's so damn quote-worthy, we don't even know where to start. Join Tom Hanks at the bus stop to listen one more time to the heartwarming tale of how he blundered his way through almost every major event in 20th Century America. A timeless story of war, ping-pong, shrimp and a girl called Jenny. Say it with us now: "Run Forrest, run!" "This is not your average Hollywood blockbuster and is certainly the most ambitious project Robert Zemeckis - second only to Spielberg as a consistent money-spinner - has essayed." – The Guardian "Even the opening credit sequence, featuring a feather that drifts along a perfectly choreographed trajectory until it reaches its precise destination -- a fine visual embodiment of Forrest's own path through life -- is cause for astonishment." – The NY Times Certificate: 12A. Runtime: 2 hours 21 minutes. Each ticket provides entry for two. Valid ID required. You can book a pillow for two or indulge in one all to yourself. It’s BYO so make sure you bring along snacks and refreshments to enjoy al fresco style.
"A movie heart-breaker of oddball wit and startling grace."
