The cinema club at Stanley Halls is ready to go with a new season of movies – and a new brand – starting this autumn with a screening of the widely acclaimed Amy Winehouse biopic.
The organisers say, “We want film lovers around South Norwood to rediscover the magic of a night at the cinema, so, inspired by the man who built Stanley Halls, we’ve renamed ourselves Stanley’s Film Club.
“We’ve been working on a new programme of monthly films to include new cinema releases, inspiring classics and short films from south London filmmakers. We also have an exciting new location within the halls – in the beautiful balcony area of the main hall, bedecked with vintage cinema seats.”
All the films shown by Stanley’s Film Club will be ticketed, but there will be special offers to those who sign up as members.
Stanley’s Film Club will launch on October 7 with a screening of Amy, from BAFTA award-winning director Asif Kapadia (the maker of Senna).
Using archive footage alone, the film shines a light on this once-in-a-generation talent and tells Amy’s incredible but tragic story in her own words. The choice of film was inspired by a local connection – in 2001 the singer attended the BRIT School in South Norwood just before she wrote her first album, “Frank”.
