Deaf Conversations About Cinema Licorice Pizza


Please note: This event took place in Jan 2022

Join us at the 17:40 screening of Licorice Pizza on Thu 20 Jan which will feature Descriptive Subtitles and an introduction from Sven De Hondt, Freelance Film Writer and Box Office Supervisor at Watershed. This will be followed at 20:00 by a post screening discussion in the Café & Bar with audience members and Sven. The evening will be hosted by Deaf artist, performer and filmmaker David Ellington and will feature BSL interpretation throughout.

The latest from Paul Thomas Anderson (Phantom Thread, Inherent Vice) is a nostalgic, irresistible coming-of-age story set against the backdrop of 1973’s San Fernando Valley. On his high school picture day, teenager Gary Valentine (Cooper Hoffman, son of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman) befriends photographer’s assistant Alana Kane (Alana Haim), setting off their journey through Hollywood, politics, first love, and the rapidly changing landscape of 1970’s America.

Also featuring Sean Penn, Bradley Cooper, and John C. Reilly, Licorice Pizza is an exuberant love letter to the ’70s and a bittersweet evocation of the treacherous navigation of romance. Please join us in the Café & Bar for an informal discussion after the screening, which will include BSL interpretation. You’ll receive 10% off drinks with your cinema ticket – so grab a glass and let us know your thoughts about Licorice Pizza.
