Kate Grenville's The Secret River is a sweeping tale of the founding of Australia and the moral choices that created a nation. Earlier this week, our north of the river sister site, Kentishtowner, tapped into a hot topic in their neck of the woods: KT has no local cinema, and the website is campaigning to get one. The little basement room downstairs at this renowned Bermondsey gastropub (main image and above) is a joy. Tucked down a graffitied alleyway under the railway arches in Loughborough Junction is a real south London gem.
Back in SE1, this teeny but brilliantly formed independent cinema and bar – opened in 2009 – is part of the slightly patchy Bermondsey Square development, which always feels a little half-finished to us. This recently revamped Peckham boozer has a door at the back of the bar you could easily miss.
Whirled Cinema is amazing - and in such an unassuming spot underneath those railway arches. William Thornhill, an illiterate Thames bargeman and a man of quick temper but deep feelings, steals a load of timber and is transported to New South Wales in 1806.
Moviestorm is the best place to watch The Secret River - Season 5 Episode 11 (S05E11) online. The Secret River tells the story of William Thornhill, a poor waterman from London who is deported, along with this family, to New South Wales in 1806. Beautifully decorated with white wood panelling, antique plates on bare brick walls and old glass bottles, backlit to twinkly effect, the space is calming, stylish spot.
Whirled Cinema is a top-floor, bare-brick walled space with a little outdoor area and a corner bar which can be hired out as a rehearsal room and for parties (we’ve been to some really good ones there).

Nevertheless it is a great spot on a summer’s evening, away from the throngs of Bermondsey Street and Borough Market up the road, and the light-filled cinema bar will keep you cosy in the winter. Like many of the convicts, he's pardoned within a few years and settles on the banks of the Hawkesbury River. You can read all about it over at Kentishtowner and, judging from all the reader comments the story is generating, we really should feel ourselves lucky here below the river. Aside from delights like annual outdoor screenings in Brockwell Park (if the rain holds off, we’ll be at the one happening this weekend), and local free film festivals, we also – in Clapham, Brixton and Greenwich – have our beloved Picturehouses. A curved banquette around the back wall sits about 20, with pretty tables and chairs dotted elsewhere.
The screening room is wee (it sits 52) but proper, with real cinema seats arranged on a slope and surround sound. Perhaps the Governor grants him the land or perhaps he just takes it - the Hawkesbury is at the extreme edge of settlement at that time and normal rules don't apply. Williams spends seven years rowing up and down the river, transporting the gentry from one side to the other. But there are also many other, tinier, more off-beat and often little-known cinema screens in Lambeth and Southwark. Films veer towards the arthouse or classic and there is also a focus on promoting emerging film talent – but that doesn’t rule out some mainstream movies too. You’ve just missed the creepy thriller, Compliance, and upcoming is Doin it in the Park, an american basketball documentary. He has spent many years angling forA striped bass and catfish and currently writes montly articles for several national publications.

Become a member for ?65 a year and go (with a guest) to screenings for no additional cost, or pay as you go for ?8 or ?10. There are also some short films courtesy of the Flat Pack Cinema residency, and a bit of 1970s Warren Beatty in a free showing of The Parallax View.
He keenly feels the unjustness of his inferior social position and strains against the limitations of his class.
You can also hire it out with a group of friends – just bring the DVD of your choice. Follow them on Twitter for updates on screenings. Films are usually shown Wednesdays-Sundays and right now the excellently dark comic Brit flick, Sightseers, is on. In this scene, Grenville sets the stage for the conflict at the centre of the novel: the battle for control of the land between the white settlers and the Aborigines.
They haven't left fences or roads or houses, but they live on that land and use it, just as surely as Thornhill's planning to do. Spears may be primitive weapons, but settlers know that they can kill a man as surely as a ball of lead from a musket. However, the white settlers are trapped by their status as convicts and cannot leave, and the Aborigines feel a spiritual connection to the land and will not voluntarily abandon it.
