Introducing 'Out on Tuesday' screenings

Join us for our new queer cinema night on regular Tuesdays, curated by Peccadillo Pictures.

We are delighted to be launching an ongoing series of events foregrounding LGBTQIA+ cinema, curated by and presented in partnership with Peccadillo Pictures, the UK's first and original queer film distribution company, and the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA).

Come along to regular Tuesday evenings to celebrate the rich tapestry of LGBTQIA+ experiences with films alongside conversations with filmmakers, producers, and industry experts as they share their inspirations.

Each film in our new Out on Tuesday series will be accompanied by a Directors' Q&A from the ICA in London and include the opportunity for a post-film social in our unique cinema bar.

Coming up for Out on Tuesday

Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same

Tuesday 19 September, 7.30pm

We 'lift off' and launch the series with this silly, goofy, hilarious date movie for couples of all orientations, in which three lesbian space aliens come to Earth and one falls in love with an "Earthling". Plus, a Q&A with the director and a short film.

"A witty ode to urban love and shoestring sci-fi" - The New York Times

Punch - plus live Q&A with the director, Welby Ings and lead actor Jordan Oosterhof!

Tuesday 3 October, 7.30pm

Jim is preparing for his first professional fight but rethinks his sexuality after tangling with a gay Maori boy in an old shack down by the beach. Starring Tim Roth, Jordan Oosterhof, and Conan Hayes.

"A film about the messiness of love" - Screen Daily

"Rocky meets Brokeback Mountain in this LGBTQ sports drama" - Kung-fu Kingdom

Stud Life - plus live Q&A with the film's director, Campbell X

Tuesday 17 October, 7.30pm

Stud Life offers an authentic snapshot of lesbian sexuality. Love scenes achieve a level of sensuality that is lacking when lesbian desire is defined by men. In other words, this film is hot!

Unhappy Birthday - Halloween special!

Tuesday 31 October, 7.30pm

A down and dirty indie horror that gleefully riffs on The Wicker Man, but with added gay sex, voyeurism and assorted backwoods.
To what extend is the film a gay film or a horror film? The directors always meant it to be a horror/thriller but there has always been a tradition of queerness in horrors from Bride of Frankenstein to many classic vampire films. Instead of the gay characters being these cliché-ed characters of horror yore they thought they'd update them and make them three-dimensional characters. Come and see if they have achieved this aim!
