winter-film-clubIt's all happening in Peckham at the minute and the film-loving folk behind London’s Rooftop Film Club know it. They're set to bring the magic of the silver screen back to one of London’s earliest cinemas with the launch of Winter Film Club.

For the month of December, Winter Film Club will take residency in Peckham’s cherished Electric Theatre to screen an eclectic mix of classics, new releases and Christmas showstoppers.

Staying close to their Peckham roots, the Winter Film Club will set up home in the stunning Edwardian cinema - First open to the marvelling public in September 1908, it was one of the first of the pioneering and influential Electric Theatres across London. After winning last year’s battle against turning the space into luxury flats, Winter Film Club is celebrating the theatre’s rich heritage by returning the space to its original purpose. With beautiful decaying walls, exposed original features and a 16’ x 9’ screen, Winter Film Club will stick to the cinema’s original ethos – etched on the old theatre’s door – ‘To Elevate, Instruct and Amuse’winter-film-club-2

Winter Film Club will boast a varied programme to please Elves and Scrooges’ alike, featuring Louis Theroux’s My Scientology Movie, British fan-favourite Love Actually, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Finding Dory, Casablanca and Absolutely Fabulous. The plush curtain will call with Christmas classics like It’s A Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, Elf, Home Alone and Die Hard.

Home to a licensed bar serving festive liquid refreshments and concessions to grab a snack or some freshly cracked popcorn to share. Settle in to a deckchair, slip the head phones on, step back into time and watch a festive favourite amongst one of London’s unique settings.

  • From Thursday 1st December – Friday 23rd December
  • Winter Film Club, 133 Rye Lane, Peckham, London SE15 4ST
  • Tickets: £13

Sophie Turner Power Shift 4

The Huffington Post UK announces that its upcoming original digital video series, ‘#PowerShift’, hosted by Game Of Thrones and X-Men star, Sophie Turner, will premiere on Wednesday 13 July 2016.

#PowerShift examines the power of social media and the revolutionary ways in which today's youth are embracing it to create positive change.

During the ten-part series, Sophie Turner explores how social media is more than a platform for the self-obsessed, uncovering the ways that social media has changed the way we view both our bodies and the world we live in.

Through a series of interviews, Sophie delves into a variety of political, cultural and social movements propelled into the limelight through social media. From the Junior Doctor Strikes and #BlackLivesMatter campaign, to The Arab Spring revolution, ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and even Ronda Rousey’s #DoNothingBitch campaign, social media has enabled these movements to take the world by storm.

The series also covers:

The Global Refugee Crisis - A first person account of a Syrian refugee who fled his country after 50% of his town were murdered. Sophie Turner uncovers how people are uniting around the world through social media to offer their support.

Censorship - Exploring the impact of banned social media on society and how millennials in China, Saudi Arabia, North Korea, Turkey and Iran are taking huge risks as they challenge the law.

Gender Neutral Identities - How social media is empowering people to challenge the stigma and taboos that surround gender identity and redefine how people identify themselves.

Social Media Superstars - How and why regular people soar to social media fame from their bedrooms through the power of social media.

Sophie Turner says:

“Social media has become so much more than just a platform for self promotion. It has become a tool for change, empowering millennials across the globe to engage their communities and make an impact, which is why I’m thrilled to host HuffPost UK’s brand new Original series, #PowerShift, delving into the many ways in which social media has made a difference.”

A new episode from this 10 part series will be available on HuffPost UK every Wednesday from the 13th July.

#PowerShift will live on all 15 global editions of The Huffington Post. The series was co-produced by Broad Bean Media and GroupM Entertainment (GME).
