THE VITO PROJECT 

Theorem  

Wednesday 25th January 2017 at 7.00pm

Café-bar opens at 6.00pm ★ Free! ★ Donations encouraged

@ The CINEMA MUSEUM

2 Dugard Way, Renfrew Road, London SE11, (10 minutes walk from Elephant and Castle


The VITO Project is delighted to present Theorem, Pier Paolo Pasolini's masterpiece, released in 1968 and starring Terence Stamp, Laura Betti, Silvana Mangano, Massimo Girotti, and Anne Wiazemsky.

The screening will be followed by an open discussion with Robert Chevara, director and writer, and Simon McCallum, archive projects curator for the BFI. Seán McGovern, ardent cinephile and VITO team member, will be our MC for the evening.

Theorem concerns the arrival of a beautiful and enigmatic young stranger (Terence Stamp) in the household of a typical bourgeois family in Milan. The mysterious visitor seduces each member of the household then leaves, just as suddenly and mysteriously as he came. After his departure, the brief taste of sexual or emotional awakening they have enjoyed forces each of them to confront what was previously concealed by the trappings of bourgeois life.

This is a free event but we need your donations on the night to ensure the continuation of the VITO project. All donations go towards covering the costs associated with running the event (film licences, heating and lighting, rental of the premises, printing, promotion etc). Donations are VITO's only source of funding and we need to raise an average of £5 per person just to cover our costs. So PLEASE DIG DEEP and give us a paper donation if you are able to.


Doors to the cafe/bar will open at 6pm for a 7pm screening. Come early to secure a seat as it can get very busy and we do not take bookings. 
The doors to the Cinema will be shut once capacity is reached.

Venue accessibility: Level access on the ground floor. Level access on the first floor except for a slight slope at the doors into the main hall where people exit the lift. There is a lift used by disabled /non-disabled visitors and volunteers. There is an accessible toilet with step free access on the ground floor. It is large enough for a motorised wheelchair. It has an easy lock and handrails. 


The project is endorsed by BFI Flare: London LGBT film festival, 56 Dean St, QX Magazine, Gay’s the Word, ACT UP London, Gay Mates, a Change of Scene, the Cara Trust, I-Base, UK-CAB, Positively UK, Gaydio, NAZ Project, Frank Byrne & his walkers  and Broad Appeal Podcast.
