£3.50 Tuesdays at the Notting Hill Coronet
PLEASE NOTE - ACTUAL PERFORMANCE START TIME IS 6.10PM
An offbeat love story of a lonely writer, named Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix) who falls in love with his new computer operating system (voiced by Scarlett Johannson).
From the director of Being John Malkovich, Adaptation and Where the Wild Things Are.
The film has been nominated for 5 Oscars (including Best Picture), and also features Amy Adams, Rooney Mara and Olivia Wilde, as well as music by Arcade Fire.
Here’s hoping it’s more than just a GUI romance. Clearly, if the relationship proves too difficult, Theodore can just go back to DOS-sing.
(Glossary: GUI = Graphical User Interface, DOS = Disk Operating System)
… and, no, I don’t work in IT :-]
… and, yes, if you have better computer related puns, you’re welcome to leave them in the comments box (though all references to hard drives and floppies are banned!)
The film currently has a score of 8.4 out of 10 from over 43,600 votes on the Internet Movie Database (IMDb)
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.
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(!)
Here's the cinema's official website:
I will send out an e-mail with meeting details shortly before the event. We'll aim to go for a drink after the screening to discuss the movie.
