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. Please allow yourself at least 1 hour for the meal.
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:
Academy Award nominated Chilean film for Best International Feature Film Una Mujer Fantástica (2017) –directed by Sebastián Lelio and starring Daniela Vega, Francisco Reyes, and Luis Gnecco Lelio–tells the story of Marina, a trans woman whose life is thrown into turmoil following the death of her partner. Mourning the loss of the man she loved, she finds herself under intense scrutiny from those with no regard for her privacy.
She may look fierce, but Marina is no femme fatale: Nothing about her identity or her relationship to the deceased is disreputable or disingenuous. Along with the constant struggle to keep a lid on her own grief, she finds herself treated as an impostor by the respondents at the hospital, who insist on addressing her by her birth ID.
