Welcome to our screening of the award winning film, “A Fantastic Woman” – a powerful tale of emotional survival. The film is in Spanish with English subtitles.

Tickets include tapas and there is a delightful cash bar serving a range of drinks and cocktails throughout the evening!


Daniela Vega gives a standout performance as the transgender heroine waitressing and moonlighting as a nightclub singer. Bowled over by the death of her older boyfriend, her story powerfully explores sexuality and gender identity issues.

It is an “exquisitely compassionate portrait of a trans woman whose mourning for a lost lover is obstructed at every turn by individual and institutional prejudice.” – Variety Magazine.

5 stars from The Guardian: “Timeless trans tale stands alongside Almodóvar”
