Welcome to Cinema Paradiso, an immersive night of movies and music hosted by The Book Club!
Have you ever loved a movie so much that you wish you could be part of it, that you could be magically transported and become part of that world? That exactly what’s happening at Cinema Paradiso!
On a chilled Sunday evening, after you’ve finished your ciders in the park, come down to The Book Club and lose yourself in the enchanting world of classic movies at Cinema Paradiso. Once a month the downstairs bar of The Book Club will be transformed into something different - from swinging 60s London to rural 30s Sicily to the bohemian attics of Paris – everything is possible at Cinema Paradiso!
Of course, we won’t stop there as our HOUSE BAND will carry on in the style of the evening and get everyone dancing and drinking late into the night.
Cinema Paradiso will open on the 24th of June, with our first feature film screening - Giuseppe Tornatore’s ‘Cinema Paradiso’ (did you see that coming?!) An undoubted classic of Italian and world cinema, ‘Cinema Paradiso’ strikes a balance between arthouse and commercial film heralded by critics and the box office alike. With strong emotive themes of love, friendship and the experience of cinema itself, coupled with its rural 1940s Sicilian setting, Cinema Paradiso is the perfect film to for us all to get lost in.
Alongside our authentic Italian house band there will also be free pizza and Sicilian themed cocktails to get everyone involved in the night and having fun. We look forward to seeing you there!
