Promotional post for the first CineSocial film club screening, in Olney, Buckinghamshire on Sunday 28 June 2015.  Scroll down for booking details.

We are screening the satirical drama Birdman: Or The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance (2014) starring Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Naomi Watts.


CineSocial, the new Olney film club (in association with Independent Cinema Milton Keynes) presents its first screening, on Sunday 28 June:

Birdman (Or the Unexpected Virtue Of Being Ignorant) 2014

Winner of the 2015 Academy Awards for:

Best Picture, Best Director, Original Screenplay & Cinematography

Director: Alejandro González Iñárritu

Starring: Michael Keaton, Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Naomi Watts, Andrea Riseborough, Emma Stone.

Story: Michael Keaton stars as a washed-up actor, previously a star of successful comic-book films. To increase his artistic credentials, he’s staging a self-written play. But his attempts to resurrect his career are thwarted by the cast and crew, including the brilliant but volatile method actor Mike Shiner (Edward Norton).

González Iñárritu, the internationally acclaimed director of 21 Grams (2003) and Babel (2006), directs, co-writes and co-produces a satirical look at theatrical creation and the artistic temperament that has received widespread critical acclaim.

What the critics said:

Robbie Collins, Daily Telegraph
‘This is grand, spectacular, star-powered cinema – a cosmological blockbuster – that makes us ask again what cinema can do and be. Call it a Dark Knight of the soul.

Peter Debruge, Variety
‘A blisteringly hot-blooded, defiantly anti-formulaic look at a has-been movie star’s attempts to resuscitate his career by mounting a vanity project on Broadway.’
