Paris is closer than you think – ‘fly’ there on 13 Feb at FILMBOX!

Thank you to everyone who came to see My Week with Marilyn this evening. It’s great to hear an audience laugh and hold their breath (but not necessarily at the same time!) – films are definitely better with an audience like you. Any feedback on what we can do to improve your experience at FILMBOX is gratefully received – just email us at A HUGE thank you to our terrific student FILMBOX team who worked very hard to create a fun evening for you all – go forth and create your own pop-up cinemas all over the UK when you leave school!

BOOK OUR TWO FEBRUARY FILMS  NOW- Whether you have a Valentine or not, ‘Midnight in Paris’ on Wed 13 February will surely make you smile and laugh – a romantic comedy with a difference, which reminds us of all the artists and writers who flocked to Paris across the decades. Owen Wilson is an anxious modern-day Hollywood script-writer who longs to be a ‘real’ writer. He’s on the verge of getting married and settling back into his LA lifestyle, but he yearns for the life of an artist in the bars and clubs of 1920s Paris.


Rachel McAdams is perfect as his unsympathetic fiance, Michael Sheen turns in a great cameo as a cultural know-it-all, the former French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s wife, Carla Bruni, also has a cameo and  Marion Cotillard is enchanting as the woman Wilson’s character meets and shares nostalgia with.  Allen’s script crackles with wit and the cinematography makes Paris look so beautiful, you’ll want to book a weekend there sharpish!

Our licensed bar will be selling a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, including sparkling wine, and local snacks.

This month’s ‘special feature’ will be complimentary tasting of a delectable range of hand-made fairtrade chocolates from The Cocoa Mistress, made in Kent!
