[184] Shortwave Cinema Opens in Southwark

I came across this in the Southwark Weekender last week, as I was sitting with the Finnish Girl waiting for a Frankie and Benny's pizza in Surrey Quays.




The Shortwave Cinema is a new, independent cinema based in Bermondsey (on Bermondsey Square, just off Tower Bridge Road, to be exact). It has one screen, which only seats fifty, as well as a cafe-bar, and will be showing arty and other left-of-centre films, along with local interest pictures and classic features.

It certainly looks like a nice place, and the tickets are £6 - which is a very good thing. The programme is promising - they kicked off with a weekend screening of the Red Riding Trilogy, and are screening Basil Deardon's Victim today. Will have to check it out and report back.
