Experience unforgettable cinema in South Norwood’s beautiful Grade II listed Stanley Halls. On the first Wednesday of every month, Stanley’s Film Club screens an eclectic variety of film genres including cult classics, new releases, documentaries, animation and shorts, often with a nod towards local heritage.
Come along and enjoy quality cinema in our grand yet informal setting. Stanley’s Film Club puts the magic and sense of occasion back into cinema-going and offers a welcoming space for film fans to come together, complemented by a bar serving craft beer and snacks.
We will jump start the year with a screening of Death of a Gentleman, 2015’s eye-opening documentary about the untold story of modern day test cricket. Two cricket journalists-come-filmmakers, Sam Collins and Jarrod Kimber, set off on a journey to the heart of the game they love, only to stumble upon one of the biggest sporting scandals ever. This is a film about passion, greed, power – and standing up for what you care about.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with one of the film’s directors Jarrod Kimber, hosted by BBC cricket broadcaster and commentator Daniel Norcross.
Dock Ellis & the LSD No-No (2009)
To accompany the feature, we are delighted to be screening one of the greatest baseball films ever (allegedly). In celebration of the greatest athletic achievement by a man on a psychedelic journey, No Mas presents the animated tale of Dock Ellis’ legendary LSD no-hitter. This trippy animated short represents an unusual partnership between entertainment and apparel brand No Mas, artist turned animator James Blagden, sports culture guru Chris Isenberg, and journalists Donnell Alexander and Neille Ilel, who interviewed Ellis before his untimely death in 2008.
Please note this film contains flashing images.
