The Exhibit Cinema: Brooklyn + Dinner
Films, food and flippin' great fun at London's smallest independent cinema
The Exhibit is London's smallest independent cinema. But, for what it lacks in size, it sure as hell makes up for in heart. With an intimate atmosphere, leather sofa seating and attached bar with garden, it really does offer the perfect silver screen experience. Choose a flick from their programme of the best contemporary and classic films, kickback in a sofa, and get ready to fall in love with cinema all over again. For this screening, catch Saoirse Ronan come-of-age in this period drama that is equal parts emotional and intelligent. Brooklyn tells the story of Eilis Lacey (Saoirse), an Irish immigrant trying to ground herself in '50s Brooklyn. Her initial homesickness soon evaporates as she falls for an American love interest, but her past soon re-emerges, leaving her forced to choose between two different countries. "The allure of the road not taken and the power of Saoirse Ronan's performance exert a powerful pull." – Slant Magazine "An awards-caliber performance by Saoirse Ronan." – New York Post Sample menu: - Roast pollock and grilled tiger prawn, sautéed potatoes with chili and caper sauce - Pork belly, sweet and sour beetroot with soy glaze and wilted spinach - Truffle chicken burger, cheese, crispy onion, truffle mayonnaise and chips - Curry goat, rice and peas with coleslaw - Exhibit burger with relish, cheese and chips - Ribeye steak with garlic butter and fries (£7 supplement) - Charred harissa cauliflower, feta, pickled onions and chickpeas (v) The Exhibit Cinema is an over 21s only cinema.

"A superb, emotionally turbulent account of a young Irishwoman's attempt to become an American in the early 1950s."
