‘Unfairy tales’ is the story of Mustafa forced to flee Syria as told by our Shoreditch neighbours, artists Gilles and Cecile, who are based in Redchurch Street.
It does exactly what it says on the tin, or rather: Can: Pillow Cinema!
Following from the success of Maorioke, Maori culture through waiata (songs) in a karaoke form, comes Videoke, song and dance, at Shoreditch station…
What is a pillow cinema? It’s our former tube station filled with bean bags, of course. Described as a “tribute to cuddly film watching on a grand scale” and the “cosiest cinema experience this side of a fluffy cloud”, guests will be able to book supersize Fatboy beanbags to lounge on in front of a big screen set up at the former Shoreditch underground station. The programme includes films such as Amelie, The Grand Budapest Hotel and Boyhood plus triple bills on Saturdays including three of the best Bill Murray / Wes Anderson collaborations and an homage to Ryan Gosling.Staff will apparently be enforcing a strict “no pillow, no entry” policy, which seems to suggest that guests will be responsible for providing the pillow element of the pillow cinema experience. Still, who doesn’t like a bit of audience participation? Check out the programme and book tickets at pillowcinema.com.
