Capital Celluloid - Day 38: Monday Feb 7, 2011

Withnail & I: The Drop, 75 Stoke Newington High Street, 8pm

The Monday Movie screenings at The Drop are run by those good folks who run the Duke Mitchell film club and as such you can guarantee this will be an excellent evening's entertainment. The film itself needs little introduction, the fondness for it among movie fans having grown considerably over the years since its release in 1986. Here is a reminder.

The Drop's Facebook page promises a superb and unseen short which reunites the two stars of Withnail & I almost 20 years on and prizes for those who can hold their petrol fuel like Withnail as well as a soundtrack taken from music from the era. The bonus is that entrance is free.

For those of a sci-fi bent you can catch the 1979 space adventure Star Crash at the Mucky Pup pub near the Angel. The bonus is a screening of the silent version of The Lost World, which is due to begin at 6.30pm. Another free screening, this time courtesy of Cigarette Burns cinema.
