The best of world cinema in the heart of the city

Our next film, on MONDAY 18th MARCH, is Paolo Sorrentino's THE GREAT BEAUTY (ITALY, 2013). 

At 65, Jep has seduced his way through the lavish nightlife of Rome for decades, but a shock from the past makes him look past the parties to find a timeless landscape of absurd, exquisite beauty.

Please don't forget that members can invite their guests along to the film for one-off ticket fees if they wish.
