FEAST Film Nights – at the Book and Record Bar


Community cinema screenings – another volunteer-run initiative from West Norwood Feast. Held at The Book and Record Bar, 20 Norwood High St, SE27 9NR

Next screening – “SCHOOL’S OUT FOR SUMMER” as
FEAST Film Nights presents:

DAZED AND CONFUSED (15) – 8pm, Friday 21st July

Here’s one to see with a bud or two...

  • We’ve had to postpone this screening for a few weeks from the scheduled date in June – apologies for the late notice, and for any disappointment. It’ll now be shown on the last day of Lambeth schools’ summer term.
  • This cult classic explores the last day of high school – and one wild May night – for a group of American teenagers who were the class of 1976. It’s a great coming-of-age comedy written and directed by Richard Linklater (later to make Boyhood, Before Sunrise / Sunset / Midnight and School of Rock).
  • Dazed and Confused gave Matthew McConaughey his breakout role and features a youthful Ben Affleck, Milla Jovovich and Parker Posey. We’ll follow its classic rock soundtrack with a late set of tunes at our hosts, the Book & Record Bar.

Book advance tickets here via Billetto:
Just £5 each (plus low booking fee)


Feast Film Nights bring together people who love films and their community, in an area of south London that currently has no cinema (for a few months more, at least). This volunteer group now gets together to programme and show interesting, classic, quirky or cult films and documentaries in the Book & Record Bar.

Since Feast Film Nights got underway with screenings at the Portico Gallery in 2014, the emphasis has been not just on the film itself but on the whole ‘getting together’ experience. As well as the features we’ve had DJs, live music & soundtracks, short films, intervals with themed drinks and food – and all for much less than going to a commercial cinema.

If you like the sound of this – please get involved! Email the group at filmnights@westnorwoodfeast.com

… or just come along to a film night and tell us how you’d like to help out.

You can also subscribe to our Facebook events to get reminders of screenings.

the warriors

“They’ve got one way out…. and one night”.

The Book and Record Bar and FEAST Film Nights present a screening of Walter Hill’s 1979 cult classic The Warriors.

The drama plunges headlong into New York’s gang warfare. When a move to unify the city’s gangs proves fatal, one – the Warriors – is blamed. They begin an odyssey: to fight their way past all the other gangs and get home.

The Warriors is a controversial revamp of an Ancient Greek mythological tale with an epic soundtrack and outlandish costume design.

In addition to the film screening we have DJs Keyboard Masher and Matthew Court who will be playing music from and inspired by the film – funk, soul, disco, synth, pop, punk, new wave, no wave, early hip-hop and house until 1am.
