Pillow Cinema For Two: Hairspray
Sometimes a bit of bed-hair ain't all that bad
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 rooftop of SNAP Studios, overlooking Shoreditch Park, 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. For this one, get ready for the 2007 adaptation of the Tony award-winning Broadway production Hairspray, starring John Travolta, Queen Latifah, Michelle Pfeiffer and Christopher Walken. Pleasantly plump teenager Tracy Turnblad teaches 1962 Baltimore a thing or two about integration after landing a spot on a local TV dance show. Expect contagious pop songs, splendid dancing and a feel good vibe which will last all week. "It's hard to resist the film's exuberance." – Rolling Stone "If any movie musical could threaten the standing of retro favourite Grease, it's this one." – Radio Times Runtime: 1 hour 53 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.
