Weekend is undoubtedly one of the best reviewed films of the year, but due to the fact it’s a low-budget, somewhat arty movie about a burgeoning gay relationship, it’s not exactly been warmly embraced by mainstream cinemas.
Audiences however have been turning up in droves to the cinemas that have been showing it since it was released last week, with the result that the film is expanding onto a few more screens today. Weekend’s website is keeping track of where you can see the movie, but if you want to see which cinemas are showing what many are describing as a landmark in British gay film, take a look below.
It’s a shame it’s not showing in more places, but if enough people keep going to see it, hopefully it will eventually expand further (and you can help that by supporting Peccadillo Picture’s ‘Demand It’ campaign to try and get it to a cinemas near you). And if you need more convincing, take a look at the trailer at the bottom of this post.
