Films return to The Yard theatre in Hackney Wick this week with a short season of classics including The Artist. Boogie Nights and Ed Wood. I went to a couple of screenings last year, and they were great - very relaxed atmosphere with a great bar, tiered seating, bean bags on the floor etc. Also, you might think Hackney Wick is hard to get to, but it definitely isn't - just 10 minutes from the Victoria Line at Highbury & Islington on the Overland.
"The Yard connects artists and local communities, creating work that is honest, risk-taking and new.
The Yard is a theatre conceived by Jay Miller, designed and built by Practice Architecture, in collaboration withChristopher Daniel. A dormant warehouse in Queen’s Yard, Hackney Wick was converted and split into twosections – one housing the theatre, the other a bar and café. Made with recycled and reclaimed material, thetheatre seats 130 in a fully raked amphitheatre. The aim of The Yard is to foster vibrant and active communitieswhere debate, discussion and new risk-taking work can flourish."
