Screen25, the freshly re-branded film club in South Norwood, has put together another fascinatingly eclectic selection of movies to start 2018.
Opening with the blockbuster that is Dunkirk, January’s screenings, now all at the new home of Harris Academy South Norwood, the club has also lined up Ai Wei Wei’s examination of modern-day refugees, Human Flow, and the rom-com, The Big Sick.
The screening of the though-provoking I Am Not A Witch on January 17 will be followed by a panel discussion – the latest in a series arranged by Screen25, this one staged in conjunction with the charity AFRUCA, Africans United Against Child Abuse.
And Inside Croydon sponsors get a £2 discount off their tickets when they book using the unique code.
All films are at 7.45pm, £5 – £8.50 (£2.50 off tickets for members; £2 off for Inside Croydon subscribers) and held at Harris Academy South Norwood, SE25 6AE, unless otherwise stated
