Moonrise Kingdom @ Shoreditch’s Pillow Cinema

If you’re too tired to make a rave out of your weekend, the  Pillow Cinema in Shoreditch is the place for you.IMG_8892

Head to the former Shoreditch Overground station near Brick Lane and you’ll be invited to an event in full East London style. IMG_8893

Once you enter the former station, you will first be greeted by an underground notice board. Then, the Pillow Cinema staff will invite you to a café where you can buy sweet and savoury pop-corn or collect your pillows and glasses of bubbly. Before the screening starts you’re invited to descend underground to find a room packed with sleeping bags and blankets to snuggle up and watch your movie comfortably. Today’s event was a sold-out screening of Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom. IMG_8873

 

The Pillow Cinema is a great idea to give a special twist to your movie binge. Sure, after a while it gets cold in that former underground station. And sure, if you want to watch a film while lying down you can do it at home for free. But it wouldn’t be that much fun, would it?

Se preferite non festeggiare troppo durante il weekend, il Pillow Cinema di Shoreditch è l’evento per voi.

Andate all’ex stazione dell’overground di Shoreditch vicino Brick Lane e sarete invitati ad un evento in pieno stile East London.

Dopo aver ricevuto il benvenuto da una lavagnetta come quella degli avvisi nella metropolitana di Londra. Il cinema ha anche un bar che offre cuscini, pop-corn e Prosecco. Quando arriva il momento, sarete invitati a scendere sottoterra per entrare in una stanza piena di materassini e coperte, dove potrete guardare il vostro film in piena comodità. Oggi in programmazione c’era Moonrise Kingdom di Wes Anderson.

Il Pillow Cinema è un’idea carina per guardare film in modo diverso. Certo, dopo un po’ fa freddo in quella stanzina sottoterra. E si, se proprio volete guardarvi un film sdraiati lo potete fare a casa e gratis. Ma non sarebbe così divertente, no?
