If you love good food and good films you can’t miss our monthly Tapas & Film events! Every month we will screen an amazing Spanish or Latin American film (with English subtitles, no worries!) and you will be able to match it with the delicious food and drinks of our in house tapas bar The Tapas Room. The Tapas Room is one of London’s best tapas restaurants, with 5 locations across town.
How does this work?
The film event happens between 7pm and 9:30pm, so you can either eat and drink before the film, or after the film.
You can secure your booking at The Tapas Room here (please note that the food and drinks are no included in the ticket price).
And of course make sure to book your film ticket right away as this is a very popular event and it will sell out quickly!
About this month’s film:
Pain and Glory (2019) tells of a series of reencounters experienced by Salvador Mallo (Antonio Banderas in an exceptional role), a film director in his physical decline. Some of them in the flesh, others remembered: his childhood in the 60s, when he emigrated with his parents to a village in Valencia in search of prosperity, the first desire, his first adult love in the Madrid of the 80s, the pain of the breakup of that love while it was still alive and intense, writing as the only therapy to forget the unforgettable, the early discovery of cinema, and the void, the infinite void that creates the incapacity to keep on making films. Pain and Glory talks about creation, about the difficulty of separating it from one’s own life and about the passions that give it meaning and hope. In recovering his past, Salvador finds the urgent need to recount it, and in that need he also finds his salvation.
