TAKE one much-loved Tarantino classic and one underappreciated title and you get Prince Charles Cinema’s latest film season: ‘The Inspiration Series’. Screening two complementary films back to back once a month, the cinema hopes to open film lover’s eyes to the beauty of the obscure titles.
The first film pairing will be screened on Thursday 7 July. Quentin Tarantino’s famed Reservoir Dogs will be preceded by a little-heard-of Venetian thriller, Rolling Thunder.
The 4th August sees 1955 crime drama Kiss Me Deadly hitting the big screen once more before Pulp Fiction. And on 1st September, Samuel L. Jackson will be back on the screen in Jackie Brown, which is being matched with 1973’s drug-filled Coffy to offer variety.
We’re not sure it’ll be a Tarantino hit every month, but if these three pairings are anything to go by, it’s safe to assume the classic films will remain just that, classic. The Prince Charles Cinema remains the only independent cinema in the West End so opportunities to see films that aren’t the latest blockbusters is a real novelty. Yes, Harry Potter may be coming out this month and that too is a must-see, but the chance to watch film greats alongside the hidden treasures of the obscure films is one not to be passed at.
For those who really want to commit to the cinema, lifetime membership can be bought for £50 – considering it could save film lovers £12 for these three nights alone that doesn’t seem like an unreasonable price.
Tickets cost £6.50 for one single film (£4.50 for members) but for the true ‘Inspiration Series’ experience, double bill tickets can be bought for £12 (£8 for members.)
