What's On: Chapter from home
Firstly, we'd like to say a massive thanks to all of you who visited us last week. It felt so good to be back and it was lovely to see so many familiar and new faces.
Since we've had to close our doors until Monday 9 November, we'll be using the time to reflect on our opening week and to ensure that when you're able to return, your visit is as safe and enjoyable as possible. You can find information about what to expect for when we're re-open here.
Whilst we look forward to opening our doors once more, we also understand that some of you may not be able to visit us, so we'd also like to let you know that we'll be providing a virtual programme when we can. This will be displayed alongside our venue programme under What's On, or via our Chapter Player.
Stay safe and we're looking forward to seeing you again... soon! In the meantime, we hope you enjoy our programme, and latest news, from the comfort of your home.
VIRTUAL FILM SCREENINGS
BEYOND THE VISIBLE (U) | Available until 22 Nov
Director Halina Dryschka’s dazzling, course-correcting documentary describes not only the life and craft of abstract artist Hilma af Klint, but also the process of her mischaracterisation and erasure by both a patriarchal narrative of artistic progress and capitalistic determination of artistic value.
RAISE HELL: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF MOLLY IVINS (12A) | Available until 6 Dec
This film tells the story of media firebrand Molly Ivins, six feet of Texas trouble who took on the Good Old Boy corruption wherever she found it. "New documentary about the great Texas columnist, sends an urgent message from the Bush years to a nation under Trump with sharp humour" The Guardian
A PERFECTLY NORMAL FAMILY (PG) | Available until 15 Nov
If you missed this film in our cinema last week, we're delighted to be able to offer screenings online. Teenager Emma struggles with her own identity as her Dad comes out as transgender. Based on director Malou Reyman’s own story of growing up with a trans parent, this is a direct, honest and moving story.
We'll be releasing more virtual films next week, including Recording: The Marion Stokes Project on 6 November, so please check our website for What's On.
