“Definitely an enchanting evening. As the sun sets the lovely lighting around the seating brightens and some local Cambridge acoustic sets a beautiful evening up for a joyous night. Drink in one hand and some popcorn on my lap, reclined in a deckchair… my sort of movie night.”
“Every detail is thought of, the magical lights to the homemade brownies! Love the emphasis on everything being so ‘Cambridge’, the local street food, local musicians. Everything was so fabulous, can’t wait to bring my friends again this summer.”
“Each event they did here in the garden of The Gonville Hotel last summer was fully booked and that has to be put down to the unique experience they create for each show.”
Manager of The Gonville Hotel
“With a great selection of features, passionate support of local creatives and an abundance of popcorn, this team of friendly film lovers guarantee their audience a unique experience: enjoying the stars on and above the silver screen as the summer sun sets. To simply say it’s enchanting is a cop-out, but a genuine one nonetheless.”
Our story starts simply. We loved making a evening of going to the cinema, a delicious meal before, a music night after, drinks across both. We wondered how we could incorporate this, into a summers evening in that moment on one of Cambridge’s many green spaces, Enchanted Cinema was born. Our pillars of incorporation – Enchant, entice and immerse.
We love the city that raised us and have always been involved with local projects and working for independent businesses. We worked, saved, got creative and excited in every spare minute and in August 2015 we hosted our first open-air cinema event in Cambridge and what a roller-coaster of magic that was.
Word spread and the magic of Enchanted Cinema unraveled. Enchanted Cinema have and always will be about keeping it local and creative. Before every film a local musician plays for the audience, we screen an independent short and we are all about local street food vendors popping up alongside the cinema! Film, food and music, all in a beautiful setting. – Whats not to love.
