Welcome to The Bigger Picture. Your local film club  based at The Ivy House community pub in Nunhead.


We show a film at 8pm on the fourth Thursday of every month.  It is a non-profit making venture run by volunteers, and any money we make is donated to support local charities; with a special emphasis on smaller charities that have difficulty finding funding from other sources.


The Bigger Picture is different to many other film clubs. Yes, we offer you the opportunity to kick back and watch a film on the big screen from the comfort of a deep leather sofa with a drink in one hand and food from a mouthwatering menu in the other, but we also offer a very diverse programme of films.


The Bigger Picture shows a wide variety of films from around the world, many of which are rarely screened or were given limited screening when first released but which have achieved critical acclaim over the years. Some are masterpieces by great directors, some broke boundaries in their day, some are quirky originals and others are included for no other reason that we  want to share our enjoyment of them.


THE BIGGER PICTURE is affiliated to the British Federation of Film Societies and part of the SE London Film Club Network.


The winter 2018 season at your new community film club.  Join us!



The Ivy House is a genuine Free House, not tied to any one brewery or supply agreement, where quality and affordability is paramount. It offers a constantly changing selection of real ale and craft beer in cask, keg and bottle from a range of London breweries, including Beavertown, Truman’s, Five Points, Fourpure, and the Brockley Brewing Company.  The beer list changes on a daily basis: Follow them on Twitter @Save_Ivy_House  to find out more. Its wine list is supplied by Liberty Wines as well as locally-sourced coffee from Peckham's own Old Spike roastery.
