In a nutshell

We’re making cinema a shared experience.

To coincide with our Summer of Discovery, our second Rich Flix Film Club is themed around the idea of 'discovery'.

What to Expect

Feature: Stand By Me

Golden Globe winning adaption of Stephen King's Novella, Stand By Me is a classic coming-of-age film.

It's the summer of 1959 in Castlerock, Oregon and four 12 year-old boys - Gordie, Chris, Teddy and Vern - are fast friends. After learning of the general location of the body of a local boy who has been missing for several days, they set off into woods to see it. Along the way, they learn about themselves, the meaning of friendship and the need to stand up for what is right.

Shorts: Channel 4 Random Acts7.2, Monkey Love Experiments, Time Chicken, Keith (18+)

The evening includes three brilliant Directors for a Q&A, complimetary pizza and cocktails. 

The Q&A will be with Nida Manzoor - Director 7.2, Nick Black - Director Time Chicken and Luke Condor - Director Keith

Liquid support from East London Liquor Company in the form of a complimentary 'discovery' themed drink.

15ml Sonoma Wheat 25ml Yuzu Sake 10ml Sugar Syrup Ginger Ale top. Garnish: Tangfastic cherry or a lemon zest

"The young vegetal aromas of the Sonoma Wheat remind me of New England Summers in the 1980’s. Building on this I tried to make some references to themes and ideas permeating the story telling within the film. Yuzu Sake, while being a new take on an established product, is a nod to the post war era pulp storytelling, referenced in the film Stand By Me. The sugar and ginger ale top are both there to make the mixture more accessible and are also a nod to the Rye and Ginger fad popular amongst the drinking elite of the time." ELLC

Pizza support from Pizza East.

Who's Involved

Rich Flix Film Club has been curated by members Nathan Taylor, Richard Lapthorn, James Douglas, Sabrina Clarke & Neil Francis.

Nathan said: 'As well as watching some fantastic films, we want it to be a shared experience. Going to the cinema usually means sitting in a dark room for a couple of hours and keeping your thoughts to yourself. So we want to create a space for film lovers to talk about what they've seen and have a more social experience."
