The Treasure of the Sierra Madre at Averys

DOORS: 18:45 | FILM STARTS 19:00

BFF Screening Room Series is back for 2023! These intimate screenings will celebrate a diverse range of films that the BFF team have personally selected; from genre highlights to foreign cinema, to underrated classics to indie gems, BFF’ll be showing a mix of great cinema that deserves a wider audience.

Every screening includes an arrival drink and an introduction explaining the context and significance of the chosen film, and the rationale behind its selection for BFF programme.

BFF are pleased to announce that Averys will be Screening Room host for 2023! BFF launched the series here last May, and it’s good to be back for another year of great cinema.

This May, the selection is the seminal Western adventure The Treasure Of The Sierra Madre. This epic meditation on the human condition and the corrupting influence of greed is arguably director John Huston’s magnum opus. It won him an Oscar, as well as his actor father Walter - but Humphrey Bogart’s performance remains one of the greatest never to receive an Oscar nomination…

Take your evening further with BFF's add-on options:

• Enjoy a pre-screening wine tasting session as you learn more about wine tasting over a glass

• Indulge with a delicious deli box from Two Belly, with cheeses, chutney and crackers to enjoy alongside your film and wine

• Attending in a group of six or more? Take a look at the new Group Bookings option below
