nada [naad]: mystic sound; subtle sound accompanied by an effulgence

Nadafilm brings live music to the world of iconic films. Seminal soundtracks are bought to life by the accompaniment of a live band before, during and after the feature presentation.

This is not a live score, nor a foyer band, this is a carefully selected schedule of your favourite film with intermissions of live music. Throw in at-seat service of craft beer and snacks, themed decor and prepare yourself to see films in a way in which you’ve never seen them before.

The Graduate

Nominated* for seven Academy Awards® and winner for Best Director, this ground breaking and "wildly hilarious" (The Boston Globe) social satire launched the career of two-time Oscar®-winner** Dustin Hoffman and cemented the reputation of acclaimed director Mike Nichols. Pulsating with the rebellious spirit of the '60s and a haunting score sung by Simon and Garfunkel, The Graduate is truly a "landmark film" (Leonard Maltin). Shy Benjamin Braddock (Dustin Hoffman) returns home from college with an uncertain future. Then the wife of his father's business partner, the sexy Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft), seduces him, and the affair only deepens his confusion. That is, until he meets the girl of his dreams (Katharine Ross). But there's one problem: she's Mrs. Robinson's daughter!

Live Music by:

Michael McLeish (Guitar / Vocals) & Andy Farmer (Guitar / Vocals.)

Sean Gibbs (Trumpet) Toby Boalch (Alto Sax / Flute) Thomas Seminar Ford (Guitar) Tom Bunting (Bass) & Jonathan Silk (Drums)

Had a really good night at The Graduate at The Mockingbird. First time there. I'll be back. Only suggestion I'd make is to that the Musical part of the evening would have been better if the songs played were more of the 'classics' from the film rather than the niche songs. I felt the food was pricy for what we got (had the jambalaya). I'm not sure I'd eat at the theatre again at that price. But I enjoyed the evening very much overall.

Keep this up! This is just starting up and therefore there is room for development, e.g. more varied snacks. However, the bar has a great selection of drinks which matched perfectly with high-quality music and excellent screening of a classic film. We'll be supporting again!

The evening was relaxed and different to the usual things I do. The theatre was a little too cold for our comfort and the range of snacks and drinks could have been more varied, particularly types of wines and perhaps the option of ice cream for a traditional addition. The film was great but the sound was quite muffled. The live music was well played but was a little awkward at times as it didn't flow with the film and the band didn't speak or introduce themselves. We ate a meal in the bar before the performance which was very poor and overpriced. The jambalaya was very tasteless and the white bread sliced for garlic bread was a real cheat. The bean salad had hardly any beans and tasted off! The evening had a sense of being a 'new thing' and lacked some organisation and value for money but does have promise of being a good night out with some changes. Also it's really difficult to find mockingbird and signs are needed at the entrance to the outer building. Lucy visited The Mockingbird Cinema and Kitchen on 22 Apr 2016
