Virtual Cinema are screening Mogul Mowgli and Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa this week

5,000 free tickets for the Steve Coogan comedy are up for grabs

With the collective cinematic experience currently on pause for most, ways of enjoying movies together are welcome. So, it's good news that ourscreen's Virtual Cinema is giving fans the chance to watch and chat about films in real-time, from their own homes.

On Wed 25 Nov at 7.30pm they will host a one-off screening of recent release and festival favourite Mogul Mowgli, co-written by its star Riz Ahmed in collaboration with director Bassam Tariq, with tickets just £5 and on sale now. Presented by the BFI in association with MASSIVE, the film will be screened alongside the new lyric video for Ahmed's 'Once Kings' and a Q&A with Ahmed and Tariq, which was recorded for this year's BFI London Film Festival.

And on Fri 27 Nov at 8pm, ourscreen team up with their first lead brand partner, M&M's, to give us M&M's Movie Moments, which will bring a special presentation of Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa to the platform. The live viewing party will be hosted by Edith Bowman, with 5,000 free tickets up for grabs. As well as giving an exclusive introduction, Edith will join the Virtual Cinema chat, which will be open throughout the film.

To find out more about both screenings and to register for M&M's Movie Moments tickets, visit: virtual.ourscreen.com and use the code MIKE-HOTEL-FOXTROT.
