Home Cinema Day: Pt.1 of our Staff Choice Double-Bills

As Home Cinema Day beckons, the staff at London’s finest film emporium (yes, that’s us) have got together to raid the far corners of their hearts and minds to come up with our exclusive Scalarama selection of double bills for you and your friends/family/bitter enemies to enjoy watching together this Sunday. Plus, to make the whole thing even better, we’ve decided to let you take any of our recommended double-bills for the price of one film – Sunday 29th only! Just name the double-bill of your choice on the day – or book it in advance if you have something fancy planned – and away you go: £3 richer (sort of).

So, for our first list of recommendations:
