Pillow Cinema: Amy

A cosy screening of last year's best music documentary

"A sad, stark study of a public life and death."

- The Guardian
It's time for a cinema revolution…and it's gonna be stuffed with feathers. Situated in the heart of East London, Pillow Cinema have transformed the stunning Tudor home Sutton House into a cosy space filled with fatboy bean bags and gallery chairs. 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. 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. Valid ID required. Runtime: 2 hours 8 minutes. Doors open 30 minutes before film start time.
