If you’re looking for something to do this weekend (and want to get away from the whole Olympics craze stirring London), why not give the Genesis cinema a go? Having been refurbished recently, this cinema has been expanded with a new reception area and a Studio 5 cinema screen (complete with an inside screen bar, blankets and… love seats!) Best of all, the Genesis cinema now also boasts a brand new coffee shop, which of course serves delicious coffees brought in from local roaster Nude espresso.
The Genesis will be re-launching its ‘Auteurnative season’ on 23rd August, which is sure to please moviegoers with a curiosity and taste for rarely seen classic films. Included in the list of films this season, are Agnes Verda’s Cléo from 5 to 7, rom com Pretty Romance by Korean director Kim Joung-hoon, and Vincent Gallo’s debut feature Buffalo 66 – among many others…
A hop and a skip away from Stepney Green and Whitechapel tube stations, this cinema may just turn into our favourite hangout of the moment. For more information, visit www.genesiscinema.co.uk.
