Remember that scene in Grease when everyone grabs their cars and heads to the outdoor cinema? In the days of yearning for Danny Zucko’s and dreaming of Sandy, this afternoon adventure was on the top of any girl’s bucket list. But alas, living in England, meant a vintage convertible car was far from practical and romantic evenings at outdoor cinemas normally ended in disaster. However, thanks to Hush in Mayfair, this no longer needs to be an issue. Yes, the luxury venue will see the return of Classics in the Courtyard again this year, transforming their famous courtyard into a festive cinema complete with timeless movies and a whole host of seasonal treats.
Whilst we can’t promise that there will be any Danny Zucko’s or convertibles on the scene, you will be treated to a cinema experience like no other, which will certainly beat the somewhat alluring but rather depressing evening wrapped up in front of the television Bridget Jones style. Not only will there be gourmet popcorn in the mix (because after all no cinema experience is complete without it), but eating a meal in front of the TV has officially been given The Hush seal of approval with each guest being able to choose from their A la Carte menu. Combine this with a selection of cocktails inspired by the films on show and you will never want to leave.
From classics such as Breakfast at Tiffany’s to holiday favourites like Love Actually and even the odd dose of horror, did someone say American Psycho?, the courtyard will be open every Saturday to satisfy any movie cravings. There will even be luxury blankets available to keep you warm and cosy whilst you enjoy the film- so there shouldn’t be any more excuses about the weather. Who knows, whilst you are there you might meet your very own leading man or lady!
Hush’s Classics in the Courtyard pop-up will run every Saturday until 28th March. Tickets can be booked on 02076591500.
