Wes Anderson sprinkles his magic powder once more
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. This is perhaps the loveliest, comfiest, cosiest cinema experience this side of a fluffy cloud. For this one, get ready for Wes Anderson's classic-in-the-making, The Grand Budapest Hotel. Set between the first and second World Wars, The Grand Budapest Hotel tells the story of Gustave H (Ralph Fiennes), a legendary concierge at a famous hotel from the fictional Republic of Zubrowka, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. Follow them on their adventure through art theft, family feuds and on-going cross-continental conflicts, all set in Wes’ meticulously planned, highly stylised world. With 4 Oscars and 5 BAFTAs under its belt, this is perhaps Wes Anderson at his very best. "Anderson’s style may be high kitsch but the story he is telling is dark and elegiac." – The Independent "Another meticulously stylish and deadpan Wes Anderson movie that walks the fine line between masterpiece and folly." – Empire Certificate: 15. Valid ID required. Runtime: 1 hour 37 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.
