Cinema Speak

Friendly and informal post film chats in The Cellar Bar with Ben Reynolds

Join resident BFI young programmer Ben Reynolds for a select handful of post screening discussions each cinema season.

This is an informal chance for audiences to chat about their reactions to the film over a drink in The Cellar Bar, as well as an exciting opportunity to see British independant and international films often not found locally. 

Recent Audience quotes:

"A really enjoyable evening - listening to others and sharing interpretations made the film much more interesting and memorable" 

"Really added to the cinema experience, a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the film and listen to other viewpoints in a social and relaxed setting"
