Das Kino Comes To Hackney Wick This Winter

Organising special screening of Forbidden Planet with London Modular Alliance sound installation.

Over four consecutive Tuesdays, starting 24 Nov, Schwartz Wharf in Hackney Wick will be home to Das Kino (German for “The Cinema”). Their programme of independent and foreign films includes Red Army, Wild Tales, and A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night.

Our eyes were immediately drawn to the Forbidden Planet screening on 8 Dec. The 1956 sci-fi classic is also notable as the first Hollywood film to have a fully electronic score. For the screening at Das Kino, London Modular Alliance will be setting up a special sound installation which takes its themes from Bebe and Louis Barron’s original score.
