Pillow Cinema: Ex Machina
The Pillow Cinema have made it their mission to turn your movie nights into unforgettable experiences. After a glorious summer of screening s they now take their magic to the beautiful Sutton House, a stunning Tudor home run by The National Trust in the heart of Hackney. Filled with oak-panelled rooms and charming original features, it’s the perfect setting for cosying up with a movie and a loved one this winter. Alex Garland’s latest drama is shot through with all the tension we’ve come to expect of the English screenwriter. His directorial debut sees a programmer agree to take part in an AI experiment, only to wind up in a dystopian tech nightmare. And you thought resetting your router was scary... "Stylish, elegant, tense, cerebral, satirical and creepy." – Empire Online "Bewitchingly smart sci-fi." – The Telegraph Certificate: 15. Valid ID required. Runtime: 1 hour 46 minutes. Doors to Sutton House open half an hour before the event. The film will start at the advertised time, and no trailers will be shown in advance. The fatboy bean bags are huge, and seat one person spaciously or two people snuggled up. If lounging's not really your thing, you can also grab a more traditional seat. Either way, there'll be blankets and cushions available for all.
"Alex Garland’s directorial debut is full of confidence and wit, with Alicia Vikander blurring the lines between human and machine."
