NEWS FROM ACROSS LONDON’S ALTERNATIVE CINEMA SCENE.

Welcome back The Lexi Cinema and Kino Bermondsey to our listings. Following a strategy used by other indies, The Lexi starts with a limited weekend run with all tickets less than £5, before returning with a weeklong engagement of TENET from 18 SEP (booking now). 

International Cinema Day takes place this week… Amongst others, The Castle Cinema is celebrating with two special screenings of this week’s new revival, LA HAINE (12 SEP 18:30 & 21:00). See our Featured Attraction of the Week for more…

BFI London Film Festival programme launched last week, with a greatly reduced but more distributed programme as virtual and London venue screenings will be joined by other locations across the UK. Somehow that feels more like a national celebration of film and we wonder what lockdown innovations venues and festivals will preserve and build on as we forge ahead into our still uncertain futures.

Several great festivals continue this week, joined in venues by the previously online London Indian Film Festival (17 to 20 SEP). Safar Film Festival (13 to 20 SEP) takes place online and is dedicated to cinema from the Arab world. We know exhibitors are required by their funders to do stuff, but we’re personally not happy with being asked for age and ethnicity data in event registration processes. Following the summer of online love, audiences have been bombarded by feedback requests from exhibitors keen to appease funding bodies. We have one simple message: it’s getting in the way.

Whilst TENET continues to be everywhere, original format screenings are becoming rarer with The Ritzy, Genesis and Rio all wrapping their 35MM presentations last week. See our special listings for venues still projecting from celluloid. Other special screenings we’ve spotted in our CINEMA+ venue listings include DOG DAY AFTERNOON at Olympic Studios (15 SEP) and an engagement of a new shiny restoration of AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON 4K at Picturehouse Central (11 to 15 SEP).

As we all wait for the wonderful Prince Charles Cinema to reopen, more details emerge of their programme. BRIAN DE PALMA SEASON: PART 1 starts in November with titles including PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE (15 NOV), CARRIE 35MM (24 NOV), and RADIANT CIRCUS favourite, THE FURY 35MM (30 NOV). Opening night specials include a new 4K restoration of CINEMA PARADISO (16 OCT+) and THE MATRIX 35MM (16 OCT+).

IF WE HAD TO SEE JUST ONE EVENT THIS WEEK, IT WOULD BE…

We took great delight in seeing the first screening of JAWS 16MM by Ciné-Real 16MM Film Club at The Castle Cinema last week. Ümit and Liam’s serial screenings continue at The Castle this week, adding an extra special engagement at the still dark Regent Street Cinema (aka the home of moving pictures in the UK). Catch tickets for this awesome event if you can. It really is like going back to the cinema of our childhood, when such pursuits were rammed full of innocence, escapism and delight. We have no hesitation in making this our special mention of the week.

Our Featured Attraction Of The Week is the International Cinema Day screening of SANTA SANGRE by Deeper Into Movies at Rio Cinema (12 SEP 23:30). This late night show follows their previous SOLD OUT Jodorowsky outings, so do grab tickets whilst they’re available. Of course, we have our own fond memories of late night encounters at the Rio and, as you might guess, RADIANT CIRCUS is always partial to any film featuring a Big Top ;-).

We last listed SANTA SANGRE as our featured attraction back in 2019 when it enjoyed a 30th anniversary screening at Close-Up. It deserves to be seen again.

See you in darkness,

RADIANT CIRCUS

NO TICKET REQUIRED CINEMA CLUB: LADY BIRD d. Greta Gerwig, 2017 FREE online discussion with Jon Davies at Watermans (14 SEP 20:00):

    • “The directorial debut film from director Greta Gerwig, LADY BIRD is a coming of age story that looks at the mother and daughter relationship with much insight and warmth. Does Gerwig get it right? Is this an autobiographical tale, or universal? We look forward to an interesting discussion in our first autumn No Ticket Required.”

On one of the hottest days of August 1972, three amateur bank robbers plan to hold up a Brooklyn bank. A nice simple robbery: Walk in, take the money, and run. Unfortunately, the supposedly uncomplicated heist suddenly becomes a bizarre nightmare as everything that could go wrong does.
