If you purchase the ‘Supper Club’ ticket for this event then you will enjoy a KinoVino reception, serving a rustic Italian buffet and wine. KinoVino, launched in 2015, is rapidly gaining recognition as one of London’s most original projects, that unites food and film. Featured in British Vogue and named one of 10 best supper clubs by TimeOut London, KinoVino marries best of world cinema with some of the most innovative menus inspired by the films. For each edition, its founder, Alissa Timoshkina, creates an immersive experience where film, food and wine are curated under one theme, with the original room decor and tablescapes reflecting and enhancing the theme of the night. 

Regent Street Cinema introduction:
Bernardo Bertolucci’s 1900 (Novecento) presents a sweeping political epic of Italian history from 1901, the year Verdi died, up to the Liberation in 1945.The film follows the stories of Alfredo Berlinghieri, the son of a wealthy landowner, and Olmo Dalco, whose family works on the Berlinghieri estate. Born on the same day, the two are bound by a close childhood friendship but are separated by social chasms and opposite destinies as they grow up during the turbulent interwar years. 1900 presents a critique of Italy’s unequal social structure, which remained unchanged through half a century of war, racism, and liberation.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
