THE RADIANT CIRCUS VIEW: A home to festivals, a brilliantly wide-ranging programme, keen pricing and many free events, it’s hard not to fall in love with the multi-screen Genesis. We have featured them for their yearlong commitment to showing 52 films #DIRECTEDBYWOMEN and splendid back-catalogue events with the Cult Cinema Collective and Folk Horror Cinema Club as well as special events around about HALLOWEEN. They have been first up for queer nights, socialist nights and a strong venue in the East End Film Festival amongst many others. They also gave tickets away for their 18th birthday to community groups and the unwaged. It’s always a pleasure to get there and they are always checked for more great places to shelter from the storm.
