Silent Cinema launches at the ORTUSPosted: January 24, 2014
Come and join us at the ORTUS for our inaugural Silent Cinema event on Tuesday 28th January 2014 at 6pm. This will be the first in a series which will run on the last Tuesday of every month, when we will show a variety of films, all with underlying mental health themes.
The first film in the series will be “The Soloist”; a 2009 American drama film directed by Joe Wright, and starring Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey, Jr. The screenplay by Susannah Grant is based on the book, The Soloist by Steve Lopez. The film is based on the true story of Nathaniel Ayers, a musician who developed schizophrenia and became homeless.
Tickets are £5 and cover the cost of a hot drink and a cake from the cafe at the ORTUS. Just don’t forget your headphones!
If you don’t have your own headphones, no problem! We’re selling tickets with headphones for £9.
Spaces are limited and available on a first come first served basis, so you must pre-book. Book here: http://www.maudsleylearning.com/events/events/silent-cinema-the-ortus-the-soloist/
Please make sure you arrive with enough time to grab your drink and cake from the cafe! The film begins at 6pm and the cafe will close at this time.
