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
  • TICKETS RELEASED ON: Wednesday 9th November

One of the undisputed highlights of the summer season to date has been the terrace film nights every Wednesday. Lovingly curated, raw, outdoor cinema; be it a series of shorts from the likes of London Short Film Festival, Future Shorts & Mono or features from The Great Beauty to Pulp Fiction in collaboration with yPlan. There’s something truly magical about taking in the big screen experience on the terrace. That’s why for the remainder of our residency we’re doubling up on celluloid; our film nights will be extending to Mondays as well as their regular spot on Wednesday. Expect classic films, short showreels and the odd curveball; all put together with our own inimitable style with food and drink offerings to match.

Bar opens at 5pm, £1 Oyster Happy Hour and 20% off cocktails runs 6-7pm, screenings start as the sun sets, bar closes at midnight.

Here’s what’s on for the remainder of the month:

Monday, August 17th: Digital Film Production at Ravensbourne

Ravensbourne’s Digital Film Prod class of ’15 showcase their wares. Featuring Ella Bennett, Rob Luke, Rosie Needham, Bhim Lama, Nehir and Neville Glean.

Special offer: £10 for a BTW Bagel Burger + a pint from 6-8pm.

Monday, August 24th: The Fly

Inaugural episode of our cult summer (ßomeØccu¬t) horror series. Cronenberg’s 80s remake draws a seminal performance out of Jeff Goldblum in the titular role - Seth Brundle - a maverick scientist undergoing an uneasy transformation. Grab yourself a glass of ‘Brundle-Fly juice’ and duck behind a deck chair.


Wednesday, August 26th: 20,000 Days on Earth

Step into Nick Cave’s universe: a day in the life of the Bad Seeds frontman, writer, composer and punk poet. What drives the creative process? What makes the artist tick? This lucid account that blurs the lines between reality and fantasy serves as a meta-introspective in which the subject turns and twists the camera on himself.

Dominic Davies Founder & Zombie expert said:  “Due to its huge success last year and the fact we have finished our Summer Season we bring back Backyard Cinema Apocalypse - but this time with much more bite,excuse the pun.  I absolutely love these kinds of events so we have gone all out, converting a secret East London location into an Army camp where cinemagoers can explore & enjoy drinks, street food, interactive scares, live actors, a beautiful set AND a zombie movie.  Zombies are cool and I’m looking forward to you meeting them!”
