Very much not dead (blame that on confusion surrounding the recent closure of the Arclight Cinemas chain in the US…), Archlight Cinema at Battersea’s Circus West has announced their reopening programme.

Anyone who has followed this blog for a while knows we have a preternatural weakness for any film starring giant, intelligent or amorous apes (cf our logo…). So this is probably the best chance to slap GODZILLA VS KONG (d. Adam Wingard, 2021) as a featured attraction on one of our posts. The latest entry in the franchise is showing almost daily at Archlight from 17 to 27 MAY. We promise not to go on about it…

Other highlights at the reopening venue include: NOMADLAND (showing daily until 27 MAY); SOUND OF METAL (17 MAY 19:50 / 19 MAY 18:10 / 21 MAY 21:20 / 23 MAY 20:30 / 26 MAY 14:40); JUDAS & THE BLACK MESSIAH (showing almost daily until 26 MAY); and, MINARI (showing almost daily until 27 MAY). Check with the venue for their full programmes.

Welcome back Archlight, we can’t wait to slide into your seats… We’re tracking all London’s reopening programme announcements in our indie venue A-Z.
