Fresh from the successes of their funding campaign for a second screen & the tragedy of a fire in their foyer during shutdown, Lexi Cinema is back (with a sexy new website)!
Cinema news is getting better and better but some venues had a tougher time of the shutdown than others. Following the fire that damaged their foyer and auditorium in September 2020, it’s really wonderful news to be welcoming back the Lexi Cinema in Kensal Green NW10 along with their brand new – part-crowdfunded – second screen.
The venue’s reopening programme includes the following delights: AMMONITE d. Francis Lee, 2020 (various dates from 17 to 27 MAY); JUDAS & THE BLACK MESSIAH d. Shaka King, 2021 (almost daily until 26 MAY); MA RAINEY’S BLACK BOTTOM d. George C. Wolfe, 2020 (23 MAY 18:00 / 24 MAY 18:20 / 27 MAY 15:30); MINARI d. Lee Isaac Chung, 2020 (almost daily from 21 MAY); NOMADLAND d. Chloé Zhao, 2020 (daily to 27 MAY); and, SOUND OF METAL d. Darius Marder, 2020 (various dates to 27 MAY). There’s also a screening of a documentary as part of their LexiDocs strand, THE 8TH d. Maeve O’Boyle, 2020 (25 MAY 18:15 / 26 MAY 15:20).
The Lexi is promoting two special events as part of their reopening programme. The first is a screening of Pedro Almodóvar’s 2020 short film THE HUMAN VOICE including a recorded Q&A (19 MAY 18:30 / 21 MAY 21:00 / 23 MAY 14:45). The second is a screening of SOUND OF METAL which also gets a recorded Q&A (26 MAY 20:15). Check with the venue for full dates and details.
The Lexi Cinema reopens on 17 May 2021 & public booking opens from 04 May. Welcome back!!
