Portobello Pop-Up Cinema

September 30, 2010

The autumn season at Portobello Pop-Up Cinema continues apace. Today the quirky venue is hosting a bicycle day in conjunction with the Ladies who Cycle club. There'll be a mass photo-call featuring local mothers and daughters who bring their bicycles down together, bicycle related shorts from 7pm and the chance to win all manner of cycling goodies. At 8.30pm, there follows a bizarre animation feature film called Belleville Rendevous about a club-footed grandmother trying to save a Tour de France cyclist from the French mafia.

Eclectic October highlights include  Rachel Johnson in conversation about her new book, Diary of The Lady, the dystopian Planet of the Apes and Thierry Guetta's Exit Through the Gift Shop about reclusive street artist Banksy.

The season ends on 31 October with a spooky fancy dress extravaganza with comedy cabaret and a screening on cult horror flick, Halloween. The cinema is a not-for-profit microplex located under the Westway with film buffs invited to contribute what they can afford. See you later Electric!
