Watch the rain on screen whilst sitting In the sun
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 a masterpiece of the classical Hollywood musical. The setting is 1927 Hollywood during the transition from silent movies to talkies. Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly) and Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen) are the darlings of the silent silver screen. However, their transition from quiet to loud is not too smooth, and Lina's shrill voice is not a hit with audiences...that is, until the studio decides to use a young up-and-coming star, Kathy Selden (Debbie Reynolds ) to dub her voice. Expect memorable songs, lavish routines and Kelly's fabulous song-and-dance number performed in the rain. "For humour and sheer energy, no musical betters Singin' In The Rain." – Film4 "Compounded generously of music, dance, color, spectacle and a riotous abundance of Gene Kelly." – New York Times Certificate U. Runtime: 1 hour 38 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.
