Five strangers with nothing in common, except each other
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 the definitive '80s teen movie, The Breakfast Club. Written and directed by John Hughes and starring a 23-year-old Emilio Estevez, The Breakfast Club follows a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal as they put aside their differences to make a weekend detention bearable. Don’t worry, all the stereotypes are represented so no one feels left out. Hailing from 1985, this film is now celebrating its 30-year anniversary; so why not celebrate with The Nomad Cinema. "Hughes has made funnier (Ferris Bueller) and better (Pretty In Pink), but this is the only one you could get away with calling iconic. Good and bad, it's still the definitive '80s teen movie." – Empire "Eminently watchable and consistently entertaining...It has a candour that is unexpected and refreshing in a sea of too-often generic teen-themed films." – ReelViews Certificate: 15. Runtime: 1 hour 34 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 touchstone of '80s pop culture."
