Movies all year at spectacular venues, indoors and out
Pop-up cinemas seem to be popping up turning up all over the place recently, with a select group of movie fans choosing to shun the sterile multiplexes in favour of a venue with a bit more pizzazz. Pop-ups can be so cool that on some occasions it seems as if the movie is the least important part of the evening.
The latest and greatest pop-up venture to appear on the scene is brought to you by the London-based Lexi Cinema. The Lexi was so bowled over by the positive response to its outdoor screenings at a number of venues last year that it cleverly decided to set up a company dedicated to the art of pop-up cinema.
The result is The Nomad 'roaming' cinema, an outfit that travels across London and the south-east throughout the year, bringing pop-up cinema fans the best movies in the best places, including parks, opera houses, castles, country houses, social clubs, swimming pools, and even churches (though presumably The Exorcist won't be getting a screening at such a venue).
Families are welcome as long as the film classification is appropriate, of course. Movies are shown come rain or shine, and a screening will only be cancelled if weather conditions are considered to be too dangerous.
The organisers recommend you take some extra layers of clothing in case you begin to feel cold. Food and drink is served on site, though you're welcome to take your own supplies.
Most people put down mats or blankets to sit on. If you bring a chair, you might be asked to move to the back so as not to block anyone's view.
