If you don't remember the sixties, don't worry – neither did they
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. This is perhaps the loveliest, comfiest, cosiest cinema experience this side of a fluffy cloud. For this one get ready for the 1987 cult comedy Withnail and I, an intensely intimate film following the cramped country holiday of unemployed and unemployable struggling actors set in 60s Britain. Every moment is enjoyable and every line is quotable. Oh, Withnail, you're our favourite Richard E Grant "To pronounce oneself immune to the charms of Withnail & I is to declare oneself a philistine, a puritan and a snob." – The Independent "Fans can mouth the words of Grant's big speeches along with him, relishing every viperish turn of phrase...this is and always will be a perfect dark comedy and a student staple." – Empire Certificate: 15. Runtime: 1 hour 45 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.
"Withnail and I is a coming-of-age comedy about friendship and a touching farewell to a lost era."
