Like films? Like books? Like talking about films and books?

Cinema Book Club selects the best book to film adaptations to watch and discuss in our unique book club. The idea is simple: we choose a book and film adaptation for discussion, read the book, then host a screening of the film in Pálás cinema followed by a discussion afterwards in our bar. All are welcome to join, even if you haven’t had a chance to read the book.

Did you know that one of our favourite 90s teen movies, 10 Things I Hate About You is actually based on Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew? This cleverly adapted update to the original text has surprisingly close ties to its source material and both play and film are charming and witty romantic comedies about sexual politics and the lengths we go to for love.

In partnership with Pálás.
