Exploding Cinema posterMay the fourth: you won’t kenobi what hit you at Exploding Cinema! We’re back at London’s premier collection of cinematic artefacts for a night of home grown and exotic short films.

There will be drama, horror, frolics, crazy surreal adventures… and the films aren’t bad either. Our submissions postbag, though bottomless, is already bursting at the seams with raw invention and pure creativity. On the 4th of May we will upend it onto the screen and see what leaks out into your eyes.

With: Live music, raffle, bar, snacks, cinematic ephemera and projections that will open a portal just down the corridor on the left, where the toilets are.

We have been coming to the Cinema Museum for over ten years and shown hundreds of shorts in that time. If you would like to submit a film for this or a future screening, details can be found on our website

Refreshments will be available in our licensed cafe/bar.
