Poster for A Single Man screening

Screen 17, who describe themselves as a “local microplex cinema”, are showing the Tom Ford film ‘A Single Man’ on Thursday 15 September at their new pop-up cinema in Walthamstow Village.

Screen 17 is a regular pop-up cinema which screens films at the Orford Road Social Club in the Village. They have screened a couple of kids films, and showed ‘This Sporting Life’ as part of the E17 Art Trail, but I think ‘A Single Man’ really marks the beginning of the regular evening screenings for adults. Walthamstow of course has no permanent cinema at the moment, so as well as showing some good films, Screen 17 might also prove to be a barometer of the level of interest in regular cinema screenings in E17. The choice of ‘A Single Man’ seems a natural one – I thought it was intelligent without being academic, and likely to appeal to the Walthamstow Village demographic (I mean that in the nicest sense, you know Stow Scene has got love for the Village!).

As well as actually watching the film, Screen 17 offers a licensed bar, popcorn, and “quality hot dogs” (always preferable to low-quality hot dogs, although Stow Scene has had plenty of both in our time). The screening is on Thursday 15 September, doors open at 7.45pm for an 8.30pm screening, £8 on the door. More details on Screen 17 here.
