Pillow Cinema: Bridge Of Spies

A cosy screening of a Spielberg spy classic

"Tom Hanks and Mark Rylance are red hot in Steven Spielberg's magnificent cold war thriller."

- 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. 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. When a CIA U-2 spy plane is shot down in service over the Soviet Union, American pilot Francis Gary Powers escapes death only to be immediately captured by Russians. Lawyer James Donovan is tasked with the seemingly impossible mission of negotiating Powers’ release from his captors and is unwittingly thrust right into the epicentre of the Cold War. Masterful storyteller Steven Spielberg directs this tense political thriller which is based upon the true events surrounding the infamous 1960 U-2 incident. "It's one of Spielberg's best – anchored by solid work from Hanks but given grace and wit by Rylance." – Uncut Magazine "As a Cold War film, it's strong. As a window into Spielberg's mind, it's essential." – Little White Lies Certificate 12A. Runtime: 2 hours 21 minutes.
