Join us at the National Maritime Museum for a Sally Potter's "sumptuous and witty" (Adam Roberts, Film 4) adaptation, made over 20 years ago, that says so much about topical gender issues in 2016. 
Orlando is a film in which the protagonist - played to perfection, as always, by Tilda Swinton - goes to sleep in the 16th century as a man, and wakes as a woman. Orlando follows Swinton's  apparently ageless character through the following decades, as she comes to terms with her feminine life. In sumptuous setting and with wonderful costume, Potter creates a world where all the details matter. 
The evening will include a performance from the London Oriana Choir, one of the city’s leading singing groups. Be sure to join us for some "thrilling vocal pyrotechnics”! (Evening Standard)


A new venue for this year, the National Maritime Museum is nestled at the heart of Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site and is one of four iconic venues of the Royal Museums Greenwich. We’re delighted to be screening on the lawns of The Queen’s House, which provides a unique historic setting with unrivalled views of picturesque Greenwich Park, the home of Greenwich Mean Time and The Royal Observatory.

A site with prestigious Royal connections that reach back to the Tudor period, it is easy to imagine monarchs of the past walking and hunting in the grounds. The Queen’s House in its current form is famous for being the first Classical building in England and celebrates its 400th anniversary in 2016. You might recognise it one of the locations in Ang Lee’s period favourite Sense and Sensibility.

PLEASE NOTE: for public safety and environmental reasons, glass is not permitted anywhere on the grounds. If bringing a picnic, please bring plastic cups and plastic bottles instead. Many thanks.

Enjoy your trip to Greenwich by rail or river. It takes no time at all. The site is just 10 minutes from central London by rail, or make the journey part of the fun and arrive by boat. 


Just like The Lexi Cinema, The Nomad financially supports the fantastic work of trailblazing charity, The Sustainability Institute. Find out more...
