Welcome Cinema + Kitchen present with The Frontline Club: The Post

Booking via Eventbrite

Join Welcome Cinema for a night of captivating cinema, delicious international cuisine, and fascinating conversation as they host their final event of the summer: a screening of Steven Spielberg’s latest hit, The Post.

The Post is about a cover-up that spanned four U.S. Presidents and pushed the country’s first female newspaper publisher and a hard-driving editor to join an unprecedented battle between the press and the government.

‘The Post’ is not a period movie. Instead, it is squarely addressed to the present day, striving for the urgency of a headline. The film is here to warn us of fresh threats to press freedom; to confirm that the battle between real news and fake news is not without precedent; and to raise a knowing titter. – The New Yorker

Before the film, there is a delicious supperclub prepared by the talented Welcome Kitchen. Fresh off of a collaboration with Deliveroo for Refugee Week, the popularity of these refugee chefs keep growing.

The Frontline Club will host the post screen discussion.

Speakers
