Her (dir. Spike Jonze)

  • February 18, 2014 · 6:15 PM
  • Notting Hill Coronet

£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:

www.coronet.org

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.

    "Her" was thought provoking, challenging, moving, depressing and confusing all at the same time. It is the sort of movie that raises more questions that you can possibly answer. My brain is still trying to "process" it and I have a feeling it will keep doing it for a while... Am I glad I saw it? Absolutely!

    Do you meet up regularly in Tuesdays?

    February 17, 2014

    • Gavin

      Hi Cammy. There isn't a set pattern, though there are likely to be more weekday meets on Mon & Tues as this is when most of the cinema ticket offers are on. I'm open to suggestions if certain days are difficult for individuals.

    Might be able to make this time, got to check some things at work. TFL says it's only thirty minutes to Notting Hill so might be doable, I'll RSVP this evening :)

    February 11, 2014

    • Michelle

      Booked :) It's so odd not to have a confirmation email to let you know you have the right thing, must have gotten the poor guy to check I had the right showings three times.

    I'm still 'up for it'… But I'll get my ticket(s), if you can give us an idea of where we can meet up beforehand, so we can go in together… And compare impressions afterward...

    Hi. Details have been updated for this event. Obvious apologies for those who can't make an 'early' screening, but neither time is particularly ideal.

  • David K.

    I agree with the question… As it'd be better for us to know, so we can all know when to link up with each other… -for what I'm hoping will be an excellent movie.
