Christmas shopping can surely wait? Watch 2 great doc films for £8, good company, free parking, free nibbles this Thurs in Beckenham!

See below for details of this week’s new doc double-bill PLUS you can book up some pre-Christmas film treats – ‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’ (28 Nov), ‘Behind the Candelabra’ (4 Dec) and the fabulous ‘White Christmas’ (10 Dec)!

Book here: http://filmboxcommunitycinema.ticketsource.co.uk/

Beeban Kidron’s* new doc ‘InRealLife’ (Sept. 2013, UK, 90 minutes, Cert 15) was hailed by Stephen Fry as ‘Profoundly significant, it deserves not just plaudits and awards but the greatest possible attention’. See official site and trailer here: http://inreallifefilm.com/press. (*director of ‘Oranges are Not the Only Fruit’ & ‘Bridget Jones 2’)

THE 'must-see' doc for all parents of teens
THE ‘must-see’ doc for all parents of teens

This screening is open to all over 15 years old, so why not bring your teens too!? (if you can get them off Facebook…) – only £8 each for two films! Students and FILMBOX members only £5 each! Superb value…

The press quotes speak for themselves:

  • “A shock-doc on the effect of incessant internet use on the malleable, still-growing teenage mind” – The Times
  • “Provocative, mildly terrifying and essential”  – The Metro
  • “Many teenagers Kidron meets seem truly enslaved to their smart-phones”  – The Financial Times
  • “Beeban Kidron’s documentary about the reality of the online world looks for the strings” – The Evening Standard
  • “Beeban Kidron’s smart and serious documentary offers a survey of the virtual world’s creeping infiltration into our lives” – The Independent

In fact we have a fab documentary double-bill (both films are distributed by Dogwoof) for you on Thursday 21 November, starting at 7pm, with FREE interval snacks and all finished before 10pm, as we’re showing another brilliant new doc ‘Village at the End of the World’ (Sarah Gavron, 2012, Den/UK/Greenland, 82 mins, Cert U) with ‘InRealLife’.

What is is like being a teen boy living on an island of 59?

Watch trailer here: http://popupcinema.net/films/village_at_the_end_of_the_world

In a village on an island of only 59 people (and even more dogs) a teenage boy runs the village store but hopes to go to the mainland to experience the  life he sees via Facebook. This charming new doc has amazing cinematography and music, gentle humour and shows us just how much more we all have in common in this global village we now live in.

Great value: Only £8 (£5 concessions) for two films and FREE interval snacks. FREE parking too!
