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.
