That’s right, it’s a Ginema.
South London gin producers, Hayman’s Gin, are once again opening the doors to their Balham distillery and hosting six ginspired film screenings. And yes, that does mean you can sip on G&Ts while you watch at this gorgeous ginema, from May 9th-12th.
The event proved wildly popular last year, so Ginema has returned for another round of springtime screenings. This year, showings include Dirty Dancing, Cool Runnings, Mamma Mia, and The Goonies, all seen from the comfort of a beanbag chair.
The Ginema begins with a welcome G&T upon arrival, and you’ll be served another cocktail during the film, each themed around the on-screen escapades. But the gin doesn’t stop there, for gin & tonic sorbet will be passed out during the screening, and your own personal goody bag awaits, filled with gin-themed gifts such as G&T popcorn and sweet cones.
Here’s the full film lineup:
Thursday 9th May – Dirty Dancing (7:30pm)
Friday 10th May – Cool Runnings (7:30pm)
Saturday 11th May -Mamma Mia (2:30pm) & The Italian Job (7:30pm)
Sunday 12th May -The Goonies (2:30pm) & Goldfinger (7:30pm)
Welcome cocktails are served half an hour before the films start. Tickets cost £35 and include everything listed above, plus a few extra surprises. You can book a Ginema screening here.
