Curzon Soho
99 Shaftesbury Avenue, W1D 5DY, London

Come see the world premiere of the Director’s Cut of The Handmaiden, a month before the movie comes out on general release. Tickets will sell out so get yours fast.

If you’ve heard of Chan-wook Park then you know he is writer/director of the classic, Old Boy.

The World Premiere of the Director’s Cut of The Handmaiden. Chan-wook Park’s latest, critically lauded historical epic, in this version runs an extra 22mins to the standard version of the film. 1930s Korea, in the period of Japanese occupation, a new girl (Sookee) is hired as a handmaiden to a Japanese heiress (Hideko) who lives a secluded life on a large countryside estate with her domineering Uncle (Kouzuki). But the maid has a secret. She is a pickpocket recruited by a swindler posing as a Japanese Count to help him seduce the Lady to elope with him, rob her of her fortune, and lock her up in a madhouse. The plan seems to proceed according to plan until Sookee and Hideko discover some unexpected emotions.

We meet at the Curzon Soho bar for a drink or two before the movie.

Director James Hughes

The Stomach

The Stomach

Frank’s had enough. A spirit medium whose unique and grotesque method of channeling the dead is putting his own life at risk, he wants out. But others, in this world and the next, have plans of their own. Part body horror, part crime thriller, part ghost story, The Stomach is a unique tale of Supernatural Noir.

Director Ben Steiner


If I Can Dream

A peculiar journey following the artist Dmitri Galitzine as he chases his dream of being the best Elvis Tribute Artist in Europe.

Director Mattia Reiniger



Pastry is a short film about a ‘sweet’ seduction. It is a light-hearted but meaningful look at how women perceive their body weight or shape in relation to others. Our fairy-tale starts when Caroline, a business woman in her early thirties, allows her desire for a doughnut to win over her months of dieting. But the first doughnut leads to a doomed diet, and so much more.

Director Eduardo Barreto

This has got all the ingrediants for a great movie. Perfect casting in Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro and Josh Brolin.

Gorgeous cinematography, shot in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. A foreboding, twisting story of an FBI agent, Emily Blunt, in over her head in an escalating war against drugs at the border area. The tale has some raw action.

Come watch this movie with Non-Multiplex Cinemagoers Group, three weeks before general release in Central London at a top independent cinema.

Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) preview screening

Birdman poster

Time for the next cool movie! This wild, savagely funny black comedy is not at all your usual kind of superhero film.
BIRDMAN marries scurrilous showbiz satire with the poignant tale of a man facing up to his own obsolescence, and Keaton’s performance is absolutely fearless. A truly dazzling film..
