LEXI FILM SCHOOL

Showing Times

Join us at your neighbourhood film school, where we bring you a programme of lost gems, under-rated masterpieces and world cinema classics. All are welcome!  This Spring Term our film choices include British kitchen sink drama then and now - classic A Taste of Honey and a preview of contemporary Rocks (see left) - and we are pleased that Peter Bradshaw is joining us for a second term of Film School!  All of the films have been selected by people working in the industry - critics, curators and filmmakers - for their potential to excite and stimulate debate.  

Everyone who books for #LexiFilmSchool receives pre-screening Film Notes, specially written by the speaker and including suggestions of further reading and related viewing. 

With thanks to our friends at MUBI, every customer receives 1 month of free MUBI.  Streaming service MUBI is a great entree to a carefully chosen, ever-changing selection of global cinema, which complements #LexiFilmSchool nicely!

Film School takes place on Monday evenings at 6:30pm.  You’re welcome to book for individual screenings, or sign up for the whole term to get the best price.  Tickets are £9 (£7 to members), or all 6 screeings for £36.
