As the days get shorter there’s no better way to spend an evening or a weekend afternoon than curled up in an armchair at one of our Electric cinemas, cocktail in hand, watching a movie. Whether you’re an art house aficionada or an action film fan, there’s something on for you. Soho House Director of Cinema Mandy Kean shares her top picks from the new season’s programme below. And if you can’t get to the Electric, make your own at home with our Cinema collection, which includes the armchairs, footstools, lamps, and blankets that you’ll find in the screening rooms at Soho House New York, Soho Farmhouse and Soho House Barcelona.

'Autumn/Winter cinema releases are fast upon us and there are a good few coming the Electrics’ way. By far one of my favourite films of 2017 is Call Me by Your Name, due to hit our screens from Friday 27 October. Directed by Luca Guadagnino (A Bigger Splash, I Am Love) this is set to be one of the hottest titles this year and has been beguiling festival audiences since Sundance in January. Set in Lombardy northern Italy during the summer of 1983, it is an affecting portrait of first love. Beautiful and yet painful to watch, as 17 year old Elio (Timothée Chalamet) tries to make sense of the feelings stirred in him by the arrival of his professor father’s 24 year old American research assistant (Armie Hammer).'



'Next up is The Killing of a Sacred Deer directed by Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster), a bizarre, uncomfortable but completely riveting watch. Lanthimos’ films are hard to pigeonhole in terms of genre and this one is no different. Part horror part black comedy, its excellent cast features Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman as man and wife, he a heart surgeon who befriends a 16 year old boy - played by Barry Keogh, fresh from Dunkirk, and is nothing less than brilliant, and disturbing, in this film. One to watch but be warned, it is chilling.'

'A film that I have yet to see but is one whose trailer has me enthralled is The Florida Project, Sean Baker’s follow up to Tangerine. I think it’s the precocious but thoroughly endearing 6-year-old girl who draws you in along with a warm-hearted performance by Willem Dafoe.'



'Woody Allen’s Wonder Wheel stars Kate Winslet as the unravelling wife in a troubled marriage who is having an elicit affair with the lifeguard (Justin Timberlake) on their Coney Island beach. All goes south when her husband’s beautiful daughter shows up. All the Woody Allen hallmarks feature in this dark comedy that should satisfy his diehard followers, critics and Justin Timberlake fans alike.'

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi needs no introduction and launches mid December. Hot on its heels is The Greatest Showman, a spectacular musical production with Hugh Jackman in the lead as PT Barnum, the man who created show business. All The Money in The World is Ridley Scott’s nail-biting re-enactment of the notorious John Paul Getty III kidnapping. Kevin Spacey is barely recognisable as John Paul Getty Sr.'

'Still to come… Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri by Martin McDonagh (In Bruges) with Frances McDormand in scary, grieving mother mode bent on justice, at any cost; Darkest Hour - Edgar Wright’s high octane drama with a standout turn from Gary Oldman as the PM on the edge; Aardman’s Early Man, a Wallace & Gromit for the Stone Ages, features Dug and his sidekick Hognob as they unite his tribe against a Bronze Age titan to save their home; Guillermo Del Toro’s The Shape of Water, winner of the Golden Lion at this summer’s Venice Film Festival, is a haunting love story with a difference featuring a brilliant performance by Sally Hawkins, hotly tipped in the awards race.'
