Stow Film Lounge are set to hold their first outdoor screening of the year in Fellowship Square this weekend.

Nuts In May (1976) sees urbanite husband and wife Keith Pratt (Roger Sloman) and Candice Marie (Alison Steadman) go camping in Dorset in the hope of finding harmony in the countryside. However, their peaceful plans soon become disrupted by the presence of other campers.

The screening will be attended by lead actor Roger Sloman who will speak at a Q&A session following the credits.

There will be on-site refreshments provided by Pillars Brewery, as well as music and pre-film entertainment. Cinema-goers are advised to bring their own picnic blankets, cushions or camping chairs to sit on. Warm clothing is recommended as the mercury may dip into the single figures as the evening carries on.

Founded in 2011 by former Museum of The Moving Image (MOMI) actors Nick Bertram and Marcus Shepherd, now respectively a film journalist and filmmaker, Stow Film Lounge was as a way to bring regular commercial screenings back to the borough as back then, like today, Waltham Forest had no operating cinema.

That’s set to change this summer though as Waltham Forest Council confirmed an operator has agreed to take over the closed Empire Walthamstow.

PDJ Cinemas agreed a 25-year lease on the site, with Forest Cinemas due to open sometime in the summer.
