One lovely North London indie cinema we haven’t visited in way too long (and we can’t just blame COVID-19 for that…), is ArtHouse Crouch End. We’ve just been re-reading some of the content we created from their venue for a future project, so it seems a good time to check out what’s streaming from there to help you continue to support what they do during lockdown 3.0.

As is now usual with these things, you get a selection of new releases from different distributors/services, pay your online rental and get 48hrs to stream your choice. What makes this way better than your monthly Netflix direct debit is that a percentage of the rental fee goes directly to the venue. Stream meaningfully if you can.

If you don’t like any of the titles listed below, ArtHouse has got a fabulous offer on annual memberships right now, with two years for the price of one. That gives you 4 free tickets and 10% off all other tickets once you’ve burned through that little lot. If you’re coupled, you can get a joint membership for £80 with 8 free tickets, 2 cards and the same ongoing discounts.

Members get a bunch of other perks (including an incredible 40% off booze…) and they’ve got an all you can eat option for the truly ravenous. Why not treat someone you love and support an amazing indie? Click HERE to find out more. ArtHouse not your local? We’ve got all the others listed HERE.

Widely recognized as one of Britain’s finest landscape artists, James Morrison’s work hangs in museums and private collections around the world. But in the twilight of his life, James loses his eyesight and with that, his ability to see the landscape as others couldn’t. As Morrison reflects on his remarkable artistic journey, he also attempts one final masterpiece.

RADIANT CIRCUS is powered by monthly subscribers. 40% of fees now directly supports indie cinema events across London.

The indie screen culture we love has taken a battering. Coronavirus has closed venues, silenced exhibitors & isolated audiences.

To help reanimate movies beyond the mainstream, we’ve relaunched our subscription service as a crowdfunder called REVIVE THE DARK. With the backing of enough subscribers we will be able to:

  • Sponsor DIY, indie & alternative cinema
  • Celebrate outstanding acts of exhibition
  • Expand our scene content & coverage
