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 + DJs
Friday Jan 27th 8pm — 1am / Saturday Jan 28th 8pm — 1am

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.
