On a stroll around London on a warm summer’s evening you would not expect to find a pop up cinema in the centre of the city. But this summer you could. Property Company Grosvenor has partnered with The Nomad Cinema to launch their first ever Grosvenor Film Festival.
With set showings across June and July, the open-air screenings will be held in Belgrave Square and Grosvenor Square with gourmet picnics and refreshments available so you can sit back and relax in style. Belgravia based Mosimann’s restaurant will offer delicious three-course ‘Baloo’ or vegetarian ‘Hathi’ hampers including a special ‘Mowgli’ picnic for the little ones. In Grosvenor Square, Cubit House will be on site to serve gastro-pub food, popcorn and drinks from a Vintage Citroen H Van to complete the evening.
If you think the cinemas will be blasting out noise from surround-sound speakers planted around the squares, think again. The screenings will be silent as audio will be played through individual state-of-the-art headsets. The film festival itself is also a festival with a difference. All proceeds will be donated to The Nomad Cinema’s nominated charity, The Sustainability Institute, which is an education centre based in rural Stellenbosch, South Africa.
Check the website for the screening schedule and enjoy an alfresco film viewing. Not to be missed this summer.
