Immersive cinema extraordinaires, Backyard Cinema, have returned with their newest experience. Backyard Cinema’s winter schedule is a fantastically festive treat, offering a ho ho whole lot more than just a film showing. They’re ready to get us out of our seats singing, dancing, and whooping… and then back down on our bums to watch our favourite Christmas films. Oh, and they’ve got plenty of fun films to accommodate Halloween and half-term as well as Christmas, so all your needs are covered this winter! You can grab your tickets now, so you’re ready to step into this all-immersive magical wonderland.
In true festive style, visitors can collect their tickets before being whisked away on a 1920s inspired steam train to their magical space under the stars and surrounded by snowy Christmas trees. Guests can then take their seats on a giant bean bag and feast their eyes on classics including – *deep breath* – Elf, Home Alone, Love Actually, It’s a Wonderful Life, The Holiday, The Muppet Christmas Carol, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Miracle on 34th Street.
If you arrive early or decide to stay late, you can head into the brand new retro cabaret bar inside a circus tent with live music and performances. Grab yourself a Backyard pizza and a mug of hot spiced mulled wine or an indulgent ‘build your own’ hot chocolate and enjoy the show.
Christmas season isn’t quite underway yet (though you can reserve your tickets up until January 5), but there’s plenty of fun in store for Halloween. At Backyard you can head to a plethora of midnight screenings and even check out a Rocky Horror drag takeover where you can dance along to the Time Warp in style.
Dominic Davies, Founder and CEO Backyard Cinema says: “There’s no better way to watch a movie this winter than to cosy up with your friends and family at Backyard Cinema. We’ve got cult classics, fun for all the family at half term, Halloween horrors and a fabulous selection of Christmas classics”.
Book your festive Backyard Cinema tickets for events running until January 5. Find it at 2-4 Armoury Way, SW18 1SH (nearest station is Wandsworth Town).
