The Portico Gallery in association with FEAST Film Nights presents a screening of the award winning and critically acclaimed movie Whiplash.
A young and ambitious jazz drummer enrolls at a prestigious New York music academy. There he comes up against an unorthodox and abusive tutor who will stop at nothing to achieve perfection and demands the same from his charges.
Winner of 3 Oscars and 3 BAFTAS (including Best Supporting Actor for J.K. Simmons) Whiplash is an instant cult classic, an intense study of what it takes to become a truly great artist.
Starring Miles Teller, J.K. Simmons, Paul Reiser
With a musical performance pre-film from The Whiplash Quartet playing jazz standards and original compositions.
FEAST Film Nights bring together people who love film and their community, in an area that currently has no cinema (yet!). The group get together regularly to programme and show interesting, quirky, cult or classic films and documentaries twice monthly in the Portico Gallery. The gallery itself is a huge space with plush red cinema seats (on wheels), an enormous screen — and there’s even a bar just like in the olden days.
The emphasis is not just on the film itself but also the whole ‘getting together’ experience. We show the feature but also include DJs, live music, short films, intervals with themed drinks and food, sometimes even dressing up — anything to make the experience several steps up from simply going to the local Odeon. And a lot cheaper!
Doors open at 8pm
8.30pm – 9pm Live music from The Whiplash Quartet
