We met up with the creators of Pillow Cinema - Asher Charman and Danielle Swift - and asked them to tell us about their new exciting cinema in Hackney:
"After years of popping-up with our Pillow Cinema shows around East London, we want to create a permanent independent venue to celebrate great films, and The Castle Cinema - an original London cinema built in 1913 - is an incredible setting. We also want to provide an affordable venue for community events and for local filmmakers to screen their works.
We’re running a Kickstarter campaign until Wednesday 30th March, to raise funds for crucial equipment. Supporters can pick from a range of rewards, including tickets, membership, private hire, and local company sponsorship.
So often we see lovely buildings disappearing, being turned into flats, or otherwise lost for public use. So we're bloody chuffed to have the chance to bring this historic gem back into use…
We’re also doing free screenings this weekend, to give everyone a chance to see the space for themselves!"
