Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom

  • January 7, 2014 · 8:15 PM
  • Notting Hill Coronet

£3.50 Tuesdays at the Notting Hill Coronet

TICKETS SOLD OUT

SCREENING STARTS AT 8.25PM, but we'll get there slightly earlier as seating is unreserved.

A chronicle of Nelson Mandela's life journey from his childhood in a rural village through to his inauguration as the first democratically elected president of South Africa.

The film has recently picked up 3 Golden Globe nominations, including one for lead actor Idris Elba

The Coronet cinema is very close to Notting Hill Gate tube station, which is less than 10 mins on the central line from Oxford Circus.

As you can imagine, at this price level, Tuesday screenings tend to be popular, so I would strongly advise you to buy your tickets in advance, and as soon as possible.  As this is showing in the smaller of the cinema's two screens, I'm not expecting many (if any) tickets to be available on the night.

The Coronet doesn't have an online booking service, so you'll need to call the following number:[masked], between 1pm and 6.30pm.

There is a slight 'issue' with the cinema's card payment system, as it cannot make a charge of less than £5.  So if you're buying one ticket you'll be charged £5, but will then receive a cash refund of £1.50 when you pick up your ticket on the night(!)

    Fantastic Film I found it very powerful and inspiring, thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you Gavin for organising the meet up.

      No I didn't. I learnt a few things about Mandela and Winnie from watching the flim. I have been thinking about the film all day. Mandela has always inspired me to be a better human being.

    Giving diddapoinTed even though not feeling too well CD not see the film yesterday, cos it was all booked up. There was no 'info about where people are meeting before the film and after. Be good to pur details up. Wd like to go next week if it's on. Wd I still need to book before?.

    • Gavin

      Hi Debbie. Sorry you didn't get to see the film. Seems like bad luck that you found out about the event relatively late on. I had noted your earlier question on this page about where we were meeting before the film, and I re-sent the e-mail with these details, that I sent to all members who had RSVPed for this event, yesterday lunchtime, so this should have reached you. Tuesday screenings are always going to be popular at the Coronet because the price is such a bargain, so I would always advise booking a ticket in advance. Hope you get to see the film, it's definitely worth the trip.

    Film great with a few caveats. Meetup group er......

    An informative , interesting but seemingly incomplete account of Mandela's life. There were some tear jerking moments and some of joy to relieve the documentary aspects I am glad to have seen it. Sadly I could not find the group so could not discuss views.

  • Terri H

    VERY moving film. There is no one who comes close to the spirit of Nelson Mandela in our times. He is a man for the ages

    • Marianne

      What a strange comment, Nigel, on this stream and even more so in reaction to Antonella's posting.....!? I expect this must have been intended to appear somewhere else............

      January 6, 2014

    • Nigel N.

      My mistake Marianne. I have no Idea how the said comment ended up in this domain but I will remove it at once . Apologies.
