20 shows, over 8 weeks on the iconic cobbles of Camden Lock Market. 200 giant beanbag loungers and deck chairs to relax in while you watch a blockbuster film selection on a huge 14ft screen with booming speakers. Sounds cool, doesn’t it?
Backyard Cinema returns to Camden this summer for a string of dates from now until 5th September. It promises not to be your average outdoor movie experience.
1950’s Usherettes serving ‘beer for punks’ right to your seat as well as frozen cocktails, summer special spirits, ice cold wine and soft drinks means the experience stretches beyond the movies. And interaction encouraged with live twitter competitions, sing and dance-a-longs and live DJ’s to get the evening going.
Honest Burgers as official food partners have created a dedicated Backyard Burger cooked and served with their world class chips from the huge pop-up BBQ within the cinema (veggie options available).
And if you want extras, no problem; with popcorn, blankets, cupcakes, short films, special surprises and live DJ’s before the feature this is not your average outdoor cinema.
Dominic Davies, founder and creator says: “This year we wanted to go even bigger – more beanbags, bigger screen, more films and louder speakers. Brewdog and Honest Burgers are on side to finish the job and this year we really want crowd interaction. This is Backyard Cinema not the opera, lots of drinks, lots of food, a great movie in an iconic setting. One of the joys of going to the movies was that it was trashy and we should never lose that. This is the ultimate pop-up Cinema.”
