Whirled Cinema

Written by | Filed under Events

This is an unpaid promotion written by Elle Pilkington of Whirled Cinema (with edits by me).

Hidden away in one of the many railway arches of Loughborough Junction, Whirled Cinema is an independent cinema above Whirled Art Productions’ artist studios. Whirled’s programme consists of the best of foreign and independent films with a few of the stand-out blockbusters slipped in too. This spring the cinema is introducing an additional programme of films screened as “Whirled Seasons”. Each season will focus on a specific point of interest and will see the screening of a variety of films ranging from old favourites to cinematic gems that you never knew existed.

Whirled Seasons kicks off at the end of April with Hoffman Season, a celebration of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s earlier acting roles. This season will see five of Hoffman’s films from between the years of 1991 and 2000 screened on each consecutive Monday starting on the 28th April. Have a look at the running order for Whirled Cinema’s Hoffman Season:

  • 28/04 Triple Bogey On A Par Five Hole (1991)
  • 05/05 Boogie Nights (1997)
  • 12/05 The Talented Mr Ripley (1999)
  • 19/05 Happiness (1998)
  • 26/05 Flawless (1999)

For all screenings doors open at 7pm, film starts 8.30pm. Tickets are £8 per screening (or two tickets for £12); members get in for half price, and students get two for £10.

    Still haven’t been to the Whirled Cinema. Slack of me.

    They showed The Hustler at Shades Pool Hall this week at the Deptford International Film Festival. I couldn’t make it in the end.

  2. Dagmar says:

    What, Gabe, missed the black? Tell me about it. That’s a good film festival out that way — our sister blog Transpontine championed it, like they did Hamlet up Champion Hill.

    What a great day the First of May has been today in Camberwell. It is my favourite day of the year.

    Leading up to it, “Peterborough Signal Box” came through Camberwell on my mate’s birthday last week — old Jes, magic man.

    Next day, “Good Old Boy” came through pulling equally huge goods-train tonnage. Old Jes, good old boy.

    There is a kind of character, kind of man, in every town, called a “good old boy”, meaning a sort who’s not daft and likes a laugh, likes a pint, can be quite hard, but don’t try too hard.

    So here’s to 1 May 2014, the people’s day. It is my favourite day of the year.

    On one of my random trawls through the internet, I found this on Samuel Jones & co, the paper company who were based in Camberwell. Their logo was the Camberwell Beauty, and when the factory was demolished the Camberwell Beauty sign was transferred to the side of the boxing club / old baths in Burgess Park.

  4. Just to inform folks that St Giles’ Church 5th Concert series starts tomorrow at 7.45pm!

    We’ve got a quartet playing Borodin, Mozart and Schnittke for our first concert. All the concerts are informal and aimed to be a way to relax after work! Tickets are £3 and wine is available.

    I’ve never posted anything on the blog before — so apologies if this is not the right way to do it.. but have often seen people comment that they enjoy them so hope this is ok! The ticket fee is just so that we cover our costs and any profit goes to supporting other musical events at the church.

    Ashley — that theorbo chap — sensational. St Giles is a brilliant concert hall, the acoustics are heavenly. It is simply stunning that live concerts of crystal-clear classical music are played bang in the middle of Camberwell.

    One of the great pleasures of seeing him and his theorbo was hearing the occasional siren pass outside in stark contrast to the calm and cool tunes inside.

  6. Thanks Dagmar — that was Liam Byrne and he is such an amazing musician — hopefully he will come and play for us again! All best

  7. Monkeycat says:

    Looking forward to the lovely concerts at St. Giles tonight and this month.

    I urge you all to get in there!

  8. Gabe says:

    Well worth posting the concert dates Ashley, in my opinion. Otherwise, how would we know?

    I’m not that likely to make it tonight, but perhaps another time.

    Meanwhile, there’s an amount of local election literature coming through our letter box.

  9. Dagmar says:

    The concert was out of this world.

  10. Monkeycat says:

    Anyone who is anyone in Camberwell was at the concert tonight.


    Mrs Monkeycat.


    That is the entire list of anyone who is anyone in Camberwell!

    The rest of the programme for this month looks fab. Well worth checking out. And the wine ain’t bad either.

  11. Dagmar says:

    Sly & Reggie have a NEW slot on Resonance FM tomorrow night at 8pm. This is a connoisseur’s slot on a cult station.

    They will also have their normal paranormal, supernormal slot on Croydon Radio tomorrow at 3pm.

    If ya’s new 2 Sly & Reggie, don’t be! They is our last hope against the landslip of UKIP!


    An dis.

    Life gets ONEderful then ONEders further on!

    It’s dem middle-class gone mad an bad!

    Last night string quartets, tomorrow night string vest!

  12. Dagmar says:

    One more putting the extraord in extraordinary, the extraordinary Sly & Reggie are on today once again on Radio Croydon — sort of the south-east-suburban Radio Caroline of our times — but this time at the new time of 2pm.

  13. Dagmar says:

    Once more. Not one more. Two more, really, the amazing Sly & Reggie.

  14. Dagmar says:

    Superb show, lads. Surrealism is not dead, just dreaming.
