Johns Buttery Breakfast

Just a reminder to all students that, 8am to 10am every weekday morning, the buttery provides an excellent hot (bacon, sausage, a variety of eggs, hash browns, quorn sausages, mushrooms, tomatoes, toast, baked beans, pancakes, brioche etc) and cold breakfast at a very reasonable price. Would be great to see even more people there, as it’s a super way to kick off the day!

SPEAKEASY AT THE UNION

Speakeasy, Cambridge's own sell-out poetry slam, is returning for one night only this Easter Term on Friday the 29th at 8pm -- and this time it's taking over the Union Bar for a very special charity event! Come hear the brilliant feature poets, or sign up yourself to join the ever-popular Open Slam!

Entry is completely free and for absolutely everyone (you don't have to be a Union member or a Speakeasy regular!) but we will be collecting donations for Survivors' Poetry, a national charity that seeks to promote poetry by survivors of mental distress. No reservation is needed for the event - simply show up on the night!

Anyone can sign up to read 3 minutes of their own poetry in the slam - just post on the event wall (https://www.facebook.com/events/904257993013931/) or send me a message (pt361@cam.ac.uk).

Have a drink, have a listen, if you want to perform get up and speak - it's easy!

Christs Films

Straight Outta Compton // Oscar’s Special – Saturday 27th February – 9pm

On the eve of the 88th Academy Awards join us for a screening of one of the nominated films. Or at least one that should have been nominated a hell of a lot more!

That’s right, Christ’s Films are wading into the #oscarsowhite debate with STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON – a film that should have received far more nods than just best screenplay!

Charting the rise and fall of N.W.A., Straight Outta Compton follows Ice Cube (O’Shea Jackson Jr.-his son), Dr. Dre (Corey Hawkins), Eazy-E (Jason Mitchell) as they revolutionise hip hop culture and American attitudes to race and life in the hood, problems America still has to face up to today.

Tickets: £4 for university members

Location: Yusuf Hamied Theatre, Christ’s College

This week at Christ’s Films:

The Martian – Saturday 20th February – 9pm

*Nominated for 6 Oscars including Best Picture*

Running time: 142 mins

During routine maintenance, the crew of Ares III manned mission to Mars evacuate the base leaving Mark Watney (Matt Damon) behind. Using the meagre supplies and his wit, Watney works his way through the challenges he faces alone on the Martian surface. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible, rescue mission. Tipped to win big at the Oscars, this is not one to miss.
