Two men eating for three

Harold & Maude at the Genesis Mile End

September 20th, 2012 · 1 Comment · design, Event, film, illustration, LoCo

Harold is a young man obsessed with death. Maude is an old woman obsessed with life. This is a story that redefined American comedy film-making. Without Harold and Maude there might not have been a Wes Anderson, a Judd Apatow (it’s his favourite film), or Cameron Crowe, at least, not as we know them. And no Submarine, Richard Ayoade’s brilliant debut starring, the perfectly deadpan Craig Roberts, is a dead ringer for Bud Cort’s Harold. Written and directed by Hal Ashby, who also made Being There and The Last Detail. Don’t miss this rare chance to enjoy its dark wit and deep charm on the big screen where it belongs.

HAROLD AND MAUDE is screening as part of the Genesis Cinema’s Auteurnative season and Scala Beyond. The screening is at 7pm on Thursday 27th September at Genesis Cinema, 93-95 Mile End Road, Whitechapel, London, E1 4UJ

Booking: 020 7780 2000 or

We’ve also put together a special poster, created by our very own Harold and Maude! Young London designer Sam Ashby, who has designed some of the the most striking film posters of recent years including Beauty, Two Years at Sea and The Turin Horse, and RCA artist Paul Slater, whose 22 year career was recently recognised by his nomination by the Independent on Sunday as one of Britain’s ten leading illustrators.

To celebrate this unique collaboration we will be producing a limited edition print of the poster: if you are interested in buying one please email and we will add you to the limited print run.
