Please see details of the first Passengerfilms event of 2016. We are trying out a great new venue – the lovely Paragon Bar at the Genesis Cinema in Whitechapel – so a reassuring smattering of LS faces in the crowd would be wonderful! And please bring along any other interested parties you can think of.
Ella and Mel from Precarious Geographies are hosting, with Oli Mould and Will Davies (Goldsmiths) on the panel discussing NIGHTCRAWLER. There is a bar throughout (amazing cocktails) and food available too.
Hope to see some of you there!
Tickets available though the Genesis website here : http://genesiscinema.co.uk/GenesisCinema.dll/WhatsOn?Film=1214382
