As a finale to Scalarama 2018 in London, Genesis is proud to present a weekend of non-stop exploding cinema. 9 fantastic films – many of which may be new to you – in the tradition of midnight movies and the Scala’s legendary marathons, selected for you by the films fans’ film fans: Kim Newman, Edgar Wright and Julia Marchese. There’ll be a Q+A on Friday with Kim and our special guest curator from the USA, Julia.

La Ronde will be introduced by Julia Marchese


“I only saw this film recently, but it completely blew my mind. It’s everything I want in a film – beauty, pain, loss, wit and a concept that will be repeated in cinema for decades after its release. Perfect! (Plus, on 35mm!! It doesn’t get any better than that, folks!)”

This Academy Award-nominated French film presents a series of interconnected romantic entanglements. Narrated by an omniscient guide, the movie has a large cast of characters that includes a prostitute, who meets up with a soldier, who later becomes involved with a maid. This merry-go-round continues until it circles back to the beginning, making for an intriguing tale of love and infidelity.

Tickets are £50 for a weekend pass, £24 for the Saturday ‘Edgar Wright’s stuff’ special, or £10 / £7.50 [students / concessions] for each film.
