Pillow Cinema: The Walk
Tightrope between the twin towers from the safety of a beanbag
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 stunning Tudor home Sutton House 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, witness Joseph Gordon-Levitt tackle the twin towers in The Walk. Directed by Robert Zemeckis, it follows the true story of French high-wire artist Philippe Petit's walk between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center on August 7, 1974. This is an intense, acrophobia-inducing spectacle – those who suffer from vertigo, beware. "The Walk is sometimes easier to watch with your eyes shut, just for a few seconds' respite from the plunging peril of being poised, wobbling, 110 storeys above the 3D void on a tightrope over Manhattan." – The Times "The director Robert Zemeckis is one of the true visionary figures of recent American cinema." – Independent Certificate PG. Runtime: 2 hours 3 minutes. Doors open 30 minutes before film start time.
"Heartfelt and extremely entertaining."
