We are delighted to announce that there will be special showing of Magnus for those attending the London Chess Festival (including the Conference and the London Chess Classic). The film is being shown at the Bertha DocHouse, the home of documentary based inside the Curzon Bloomsbury. The film will be shown on Sunday 11th December at 8.30pm.
Magnus is a delightful documentary following the emergence of the greatest chess champion of modern times, Magnus Carlsen. Watch the TRAILER.
The film lasts one hour and 18 minutes. The adverts at the Bertha are short so you should be away by 10pm. Even if you know the story of Magnus (and who in the chess world does not) there are some new images and videos from Magnus’s childhood which are worth seeing.
The Bertha DocHouse has a bar on each level of the cinema; the one on the ground floor is a nice meeting area, comfy sofas etc. Travelling to the cinema by public transport from Olympia, go to Hammersmith (bus or walk) and then take the Piccadilly Line to Russell Square, the nearest tube stop.
