ANDY WARHOL’S EAT & RESTAURANT Screening On 16MM In Partnership With The Photographers Gallery

To coincide with the current exhibition Feast for the Eyes, at The Photographers’ Gallery, Regent Street Cinema present a unique screening of Andy Warhol’s Eat (1963) and Restaurant (aka L’Avventura) (1965).

The films will be screened on Thursday January 23, from 7.30pm. See here for further information.

‘Eat’ captures the simple act of a man eating mushrooms in a one-man show, starring Robert Indiana in a single 35-minute shot. ‘Restaurant’, on the other hand, is a moving still life, opening with a tight shot of a chequered tablecloth.

With off camera conversations and the appearance of Warhol superstars like Edie Sedgwick, this 34-minute film documents a staged dinner in a New York restaurant.

About the author

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
