Thursday night cinema: Mel Brooks comes to Stoke Newington

Flicker Club

Fresh from its use as base for last weekend’s Stoke Newington Literary Festival, the Town Hall will be carrying on in the bookish vein and opening its doors this evening to new residents, The Flicker Club, this evening. This ’boutique’ film club specialises in screening films adapted from literature, with a ‘special guest’ reading from the original text beforehand (the club has clearly found its spiritual home in N16). Tonight’s offering is ‘Young Frankenstein’, (loosely) based on Mary Shelley’s Gothic classic, and lauded as one of the funniest films of all time. Not content with just showing you the film, there will also be a themed dessert stand, courtesy of Mary’s Tea Parties, and a ‘bespoke’ cocktail bar. Definitely an excellent way to spend a rainy Thursday evening. If you can’t make tonight then the club is back on June 28 with Spielberg’s 1951 film ‘Duel’, based on a short story by Richard Matheson. Ellie Clayton 

The venue and bar open at 7pm, with the reading beginning at 8pm. Tickets will be on sale here until 6pm; there will be a limited number available on the door. For info, see flickerclub.com.
