BIG tip for weekend: Curry and Cinema

If you do one thing this weekend, let it be the ‘Kalkata Street Food Experience‘ on Sunday and Monday at Whirled Cinema in Loughborough Junction.

There’ll be a screening of ‘Street Food Kalkata – Why Not’, a documentary which charts the city of Kalkata through its street kitchens, at 5pm on Sunday and 7.30pm on Monday. But best of all, to accompany the film, there’ll be jhal muri, pulchas, channa masala and mango lassi  –  ‘falling off the screen and straight into your mouth’. YUM. It will all be cooked by Angus Denoon, who runs Street Food Kalkata. And for only £15 a head.

I’ve been meaning to blog about Whirled Cinema – part of an art foundation that includes artists’ studios too – for a while. It’s a 60-seat private members cinema. For £30 a year, or £5 for a week, you can see the films they screen every Thursday, Friday and Saturday for free. If you have the year membership you can even bring a guest for free. And you can join up here.

Thanks to Petra Barran from Choc Star for the heads-up
