Pillow Cinema For Two: Iris
Pillow Cinema is so vogue right now
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 screening, prepare to see the brilliantly original Iris. The film follows Iris Apfel – the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old who's had an outsized presence on the New York fashion scene for decades. It's more than a fashion film – rather, the documentary is a story about how a soaring free spirit continues to inspire. "The film exists as a document both of a witty, good-natured society fixture and of a very particular moment in history." – Time Magazine "Maysles endearingly reveals Apfel's blend of blind passion and keen practicality, her unflagging enthusiasm for transmitting her knowledge to young people, and her synoptic view of fashion as living history." – New Yorker Certificate 12A. Runtime: 1 hours 20 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.
"There are few better ways right now to spend 80 movie minutes than to see Iris."
