Roxy Bar and Screen
We launched the Bankside Film Club at the beginning of 2015, showcasing films shot and set in Bankside at the Roxy Bar and Screen.
A few months later, having screened Bankside’s best blockbusters, we have decided to reinvent the theme. Businesses based in Bankside will be invited to curate the programme, each month a different local business will choose a film that either has some significance, or is just loved amongst the team.
This month's pick comes courtesy of Mediaocean. There are a few movie buffs at Mediaocean and the team were asked to come up with a shortlist of films. Following a lot of debate Léon came through as the winner, it’s one of those films where you can’t help but side with the bad guy, for good reasons. Some might be surprised to find out that Léon was also the acting debut of Natalie Portman...here are 15 interesting facts you might not have know about Léon. Join Better Bankside and Mediaocean at the Roxy on Wednesday 5 August for this special screening.
The Bankside Film Club will take place the first Wednesday of every month after this, if you’d like to put forward a film, nl [at] betterbankside.co.uk (subject: The%20Bankside%20Film%20Club) (get in touch).
If you work in one of the businesses in Bankside it’s free to attend, just RSVP to confirm your place.
