‘IT WAS A STARRY NIGHT. IT WAS THE MYTH OF A STARRY NIGHT…’

From the 24th of April to the 5th of May Everyman Cinemas is setting up shop at The Filling Station in King’s Cross, making a 12 day pit-stop to screen some of the best road movies ever made.

Located behind King’s Cross, the Filling Station is an ex-petrol station surrounded on three sides by glowing walls, with the fourth side facing  the canal. Settle in under the shelter of its retro 60’s canopy in front of the screen with your own headphones and blanket, and hit the road without ever leaving the comfort of your seat!

If, after riding miles through Americana, you’re still hankering after the new world, Everyman’s own bar is fully stocked with authentic hot dogs, beers, wine, cocktails and bottomless filter coffee refills.

For 12 days all we’ll need is a steering wheel in our hands, four on the road and a handful of stars, to put it the Beat way. Everyman and KXFS celebrate some of the most iconic, thrilling, romantic and outrageous road trips ever seen on the big screen. Bonnie and Clyde; Easy Rider; Cars; The Graduate; Thelma and Louise; Paris, Texas; Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas among many others. Plenty of stories to choose from.
