"So, where's the Cannes Film Festival being held this year?" - Christina Aguilera


Looking for a film to watch this weekend, I found this site - not only a fantastic resource for independent cinema in London but also great for the "What actor would this cinema be?" schtick. Now, to expand this gimmick further, what sort of cinema would you be?

Me: Brixton Ritzy. Watch with Baby mornings, live events in the bar, obscure and weird foreign films in between showings of Harry Potter 1, 2 and 3 and Shrek, big sofas in the cafĂ©, organic carrot cake made by the cinema owner’s mum and a terrace overlooking the crack-fields of Brixton. Definitely.

Taxloss: ICA cinema (what else?)

Fizzwhizz: the film tent in Glastonbury that has been showing the same 12 minute loop of Withnail and I for the last 6 hours and all 9 people still there sprawled on hand-knitted beanbags haven’t noticed

Prandial: Curzon Soho cinema hosting a New Wave Spanish Film Festival with VJs and a “Test Your Stand Up Comedy Routine in Spanish” open-mic event in the bar afterwards

Devukha: Cine Lumiere, toujours, oui?

Planet Halder: open air screening of classic black and white silent movie projected onto the side of a Thames-side monolithic building with a specially devised score performed live by Asian Dub Foundation

McReadie: "Cinema? Fuck off, I’m watching the Alias triple bill on Channel 5."

Former Flatmate A: big swirly projections on the back wall of a sweaty Brighton club in the early hours of a Sunday morning that go round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round and oh dear I think I’ve fallen over. Again.

Former Flatmate B: Lactose House Lecture Theatre Cinema 1 – The Thyroid Series: Episode 1 – Attack of the Hormones, Episode 2 – Fellowship of the Neurosurgeons, Episode 3 – Return of the Hot Flushes

My Bro: Prince Charles Cinema – 48 Hour Manga Marathon: How Much More Weird Shit Can You Take?
