A dinner among friends quickly descends into a surreal, nightmarish expose of the darkest human traits in low-budget, high-ambition project The Dinner Party. A great platform for many emerging British talents, the film nevertheless gets rather stuck in its own storyline – leaving an admittedly fabulous soundtrack to do most of the emotional legwork.
Independent cinemas are bloody brilliant. Nobody’s wearing a uniform more elaborate than a black t-shirt, the bar has drinks which aren’t carbonated or soft, and if anyone tries to fumble for an Orange Wednesdays text-ticket they’re cast into the outer darkness. Cracking. This week we’ve been to another one – the unique and spectacular Prince Charles.
Our celebration of independent cinemas reaches new heights this week as we explore a rare Norwich treasure.
Here at BFF, independent cinemas are what we’re all about. Who wants to pay £15 to visit a bland and mass-produced multiplex when you can search out an exciting and unique one-off venue? Not us, that’s who! So with that in mind, here’s the first in a series of features on our favourite independent cinemas. This week, it’s the jewel of the Notting Hill film scene: the lordly Coronet.
It’s time we had a re-think about the cinemas we visit. There’s never been a better time to support our local independent cinemas, and start hitting the corporate big dogs with bats made of pure not-going-to-see-them. We want you to tell us about your local independent screens – let the revolution commence!
