Pillow Cinema

OPENED

Did you know Shoreditch used to have an Underground station? Well, it did, and now, instead of trains, the station offers a hearty selection of films courtesy of Pillow Cinema. Throughout January you can pop in for a movie, with two options on the cards: a super comfy beanbag for one, or for the same price (£20), a beanbag to share.

Films range from new independents like Her, Frank and Magnolia to cult classics (Eternal Sunshine, Pan’s Labyrinth), and popcorn and booze from the in-house bar kick things off. A slumber party in a tube station might sound like a commuters’ hell, but beautiful wall etchings coat this building, sunken bean bags populate the space and an atmosphere cosier than your favourite winter blanket is all around. Actually, bring that winter blanket along too, for cuddling close during scary bits.

 A project involving films made it into our Top 10 Openings of 2014. Can you guess which one?
