Go on a Wild adventure…from the comfort of a fatboy pillow
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 Reese Witherspoon in Wild. After the breakdown of her marriage and the death of a loved one, Cheryl Strayed is broken. Driven by a desire for escape, she decides to hike the Pacific Crest Trail. Witherspoon delivers a resonant performance as Strayed, who is battling with the guilt of her self-destructive behaviour as well as the vast journey ahead of her. Oscillating between elation and terror, the role earned Witherspoon an Academy Award nomination. You'll feel as if you're walking with Strayed every single step of the way. "It's an entrancingly lush visual experience, but one which also captures something of the loneliness, the fatigue, and the bleary, squinting alienation that travel can inflict." – Daily Telegraph "What makes its heroine worth caring about – what makes her a rare and exciting presence in present-day American film – is not that she's especially nice. It's that she's free." – New York Times Certificate 15. Valid ID required. Runtime: 1 hour 55 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.
"Reese Witherspoon delivers her best performance since she won the Best Actress Oscar for Walk The Line a decade ago."
