Pillow Cinema: Withnail And I
A coming-of-age comedy classic, screened in the beautiful Sutton House
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, prepare to see the cult comedy classic Withnail And I. Funny, blunt and with one of the most memorable performances of all-time coming courtesy of Richard E Grant, there's a reason why Withnail And I is so revered among audiences. Directed by Bruce Robinson, the 1987 British black comedy film written follows two struggling actors that decide to leave London for a countryside break. Meandering, mischievous, endearing and utterly hilarious. "To pronounce oneself immune to the charms of Withnail and I is to declare oneself a philistine, a Puritan and a snob." – The Independent "Withnail and I is a coming-of-age comedy about friendship and a touching farewell to a lost era." – The Telegraph Certificate: 15. Valid ID required. Runtime: 1 hour 45 minutes. The doors at Sutton House open half an hour before the event, giving you time to grab a seat and a drink from our bar. No trailers are shown, so the film will start at the start time.
"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."
