Inside Llewyn Davis – at the Hackney Picturehouse

“Llewyn Davis is at a crossroads. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles – some of them of his own making. Living at the mercy of both friends and strangers, scaring up what work he can find, Llewyn’s misadventures take him from the baskethouses of the Village to an empty Chicago club – on an odyssey to audition for a music mogul – and back again.” – from the film website

“The Coen brothers on top sardonic form with a winning tale of an incorrigible loser. Hits the right note on every level, from period vibe to performance.” – Total Film

“Brilliantly written, terrifically acted, superbly designed and shot; it’s a sweet, sad, funny picture about the lost world of folk music which effortlessly immerses us in the period.” – the Guardian

“This is instant A-list Coens; enigmatic, exhilarating, irresistible.” – the Telegraph

★★★★★ – The Guardian
★★★★★ – The Telegraph
★★★★★ – Total Film

92/100 – Metacritic

The trailer is available on the film website.

Following an initial phase when I took prepayments for a block booking for group members, this option is now closed – instead please make your own booking direct with the cinema.

If you’re open to sitting next to another member, feel free to mention your seat number in the comments below, for group members who might want to book a neighbouring seat.

Please contribute £1 on arrival (to help defray the approx. £100 per annum that Meetup charges to run a group) – thanks in advance.

In the days immediately prior, I’ll circulate details of arrangements to meet before the screening. Also, I plan to stay on for coffee/drinks at the cinema cafe-bar after the film, with anyone who would like to join me for a conversation about the film. Please let me know if you will stay on, and if necessary I’ll book a space for the group.

    Hi Julia

    Just wanted to say that it was nice to meet you and hope you'll come out again, shame about the cat though....

      Yes shame the 2nd cat got left in the car..I am sure it was OK though,,,

    Very strong performances, beautiful music, but oh so disheartening. The evening was lifted by drinks and great conversation afterwards though - thanks all for coming.

    I have a ticket to give away as, unfortunately, I can't make it. If you post your email address here or PM me, I will email it to you as a PDF.

    Ok well I e now booked J11! I'll look out for your instructions Jane on where to meet before. Looking forward to meeting you all.

    January 27, 2014

    • Jane

      Glad you're coming Jan. Yes, I'll send details out later today, or tomorrow. The reason I go about it this way is that it's more workable for me to send out full details only when we have 90-95% of attendees signed up (because it goes out by message and then I have to resend the message to anyone who RSVPs afterward). In broad terms, for this group's events, I meet people in the foyer from about 15-30 minutes before a screening/performance, and we rejoin for drinks/coffee/snacks/din­ner afterwards either in the foyer or close by.

    Hi Jane. Thanks for booking my ticket. See you on Thursday.

    January 27, 2014

    This is my first attempt at a meet up so sorry if I'm a bit crap at how it works. I think I'll get myself a ticket, ideally in the row Jane mentioned and then, er...will we try and have a drink after or something perhaps?

    I'd buy tickets ahead of time the Picturehouse gets really busy. On the plus side it's super easy to get to from N1 on either the overground or bus 38 is a good bet. Can't make the Meet Up this time but really hope to make it in the future looks great.

    Hi Jane, do you think it should be possible to buy tickets on the door?

    January 26, 2014

    • Jane

      Your guess is as good as mine, Egor. If you want to hedge your bets you could just keep an eye on the seat booking page on the cinema's website, and if the auditorium looks to be filling up in a day or two then you can work out whether you want to buy a ticket in advance.

      January 26, 2014

  • Jane

    I've now bought the tickets for those who've prepaid - seats J7-9 - for me, Gail and Julia. Anyone else is welcome to book the adjacent seats if you like.

    • Julia

      Hi Jane, thanks for booking my ticket I am happy to meet in advance for food and or drink or just meet at the venue, I have never been there before and wouldn't know where to suggest to meetup, what do you think? I will be coming from N1 I will send you a pm with my phone number.

      January 25, 2014

    • Jane

      Hi Julia - glad you can come. Tomorrow or Tuesday I'll send everyone details of arrangements to meet up before the film. I won't be in a position to look out for, or phone, anyone - people need to come and find me. This is because I'll be meeting and speaking with everyone as they arrive, rather than wandering around the foyer looking for people. Looking forward to seeing you on Thursday.
