Films in London today: BROS: AFTER THE SCREAMING STOPS at Rio Cinema (26 JAN).

50th Anniversary Screening: WHERE EAGLES DARE + Q&A with filmmakers at BFI Southbank (26 JAN 19:00 – Currently looks SOLD OUT!):

  • ‘Broadsword calling Danny Boy…’ With some great plot twists and outstanding stunts (including the classic cable car scene), WHERE EAGLES DARE is deservedly considered one of the greatest action films of all time.

BROS: AFTER THE SCREAMING STOPS Sing-A-Long at Rio Cinema (26 JAN 23:30).

  • In a period of political uncertainty, economic gloom and a fairly joyless festive period, one nugget of comedy cultural gold stood out… See it on the big screen as a shared communal groan-a-long, laugh-a-long, sing-a-long, & wince-a-long for a fully immersive 80’s night.

NEW SALT at House Of Vans (26 JAN 13:00 – Free! No booking required):

  • A 60-minute doc written, directed and self-produced by South Korean street photographer Soomin Yim. It documents the journey and spirit of Soomin, a street artist turned sailor, who abandons her life in Seoul to buy a modest sailboat and set out to sail towards the Southern tip of Korea.

BERGMAN: A YEAR IN A LIFE at BFI Southbank (26 JAN 16:00, 18:15 & 20:40):

  • Jane Magnusson’s documentary centres on 1957, a turbulent but miraculously productive year when Bergman, besides unveiling The Seventh Seal and Wild Strawberries and working extensively in theatre and TV, led a messily complicated domestic life that included a spell in hospital.

CAMORRA at DocHouse (26 JAN 18:30):

  • A frank and startling insight into the inner mechanics of organised crime in Naples and its rise to political influence. High velocity from start to finish, the film tells the story of how the poor classes of Naples found their own power systems, and how it was authorised by the ruling classes – as long as it benefitted them.

THE DEVIL OUTSIDE at ICA (26 JAN 20:55):

  • Four years after his critically-acclaimed debut feature SNOW IN PARADISE, writer/director Andrew Hulme returns with a disquieting examination of faith, repression and madness.
