Last night was the penultimate evening of the Biergarten Film Festival and of our summer season 2017.

We’ve been waiting to screen Chef for a long time as it’s one of our favourite films and it was so great to be joined by fellow Cambridge foodies!

We had Joe of Buffalo Joe’s serving up his delicious free range chicken wings and chicken burgers.  That blue cheese dip is something else!  We love popping up alongside other local independent businesses and it was equally lovely to have Beanissimo Artisan Coffee Trike serving teas, coffees and their seriously delicious hot chocolate.  Looking forward to having Beanissimo back tomorrow evening for Pulp Fiction.

 “Outdoor cinema in the heart of Cambridge – join us for an evening under the stars.  One screening left at The Biergarten Film Festival.”

Chef is all about the food and the wonder of street food, a travelling kitchen which serves dishes made with love.  Empire aptly advises in their review of Jon Favreau’s foodie film: ‘eat well beforehand of you’ll be in tummy-rumbling, tongue-hanging out in agony’.  Buffalo Joe’s made sure nobody went hungry and we had our vintage popcorn machines popping all evening.

The rain cleared up just in time for doors opening to our Enchanted Cinema space and we all enjoyed a clear evening under the stars and blankets.

A huge thank you to everyone who joined us for Chef at The Museum of Technology, you were a magical audience and we hope to see you again soon!

Big love, Team EC x

Day 2 of The Biergarten Film Festival on Riverside and we had a full house!  Fresh popcorn was popping all evening from our vintage popcorn machines and drinks from Thirsty’s Bar were enjoyed.

We love popping up in different Cambridge locations and to be in the historic site of The Museum of Technology was amazing.  From The Cambridge Blue’s Garden to The Gonville Hotel, The Red Lion Grantchester and The Orchard Tea Gardens, we’re loving being back in central Cambridge and draping our enchanting lights somewhere so different.

It was so lovely to see some familiar faces and new ones too.  There’s always such a great atmosphere at our events and we feel super lucky to have shared so many evenings of cinema, drinks and food with Cambridge film lovers this season.

 “Outdoor cinema in the heart of Cambridge – join us for an evening under the stars.  Two screenings left at The Biergarten Film Festival.”

The now iconic Charlie-and-Maverick-take-my-breathe-away scene had the audience clapping and cheering.  It’s moments like this during a film which remind us of the beauty of bringing a classic back to the big screen.

We had Beanissimo Artisan Coffee Trike alongside the cinema serving their delicious hot drinks all evening.  We’ve tried a lot of hot chocolates at Enchanted Cinema HQ and theirs is something else.

A huge thank you to everyone who joined us for an evenining of magical outdoor cinema in the heart of Cambridge, we hope to see you all again soon.

Big love, Team EC x

Day 1 of The Biergarten Film Festival with Thirsty Cambridge! In typical fashion the Great British weather was miserable all day before taking a magical brighter turn in the early evening for a gorgeous sunset and clear evening in time for an evening of street food, drinks and outdoor cinema in the heart of Cambridge

We’ve popped up at Thirsty’s summer Biergarten site on Riverside in the grounds of The Museum of Technology. We had a full house and a wonderful audience, under fairy lights and cosy under blankets.

We love this review of La La Land from Empire: “Audacious, retro, funny and heartfelt, La La Land is the latest great musical for people who don’t like musicals – and will slap a mile-wide smile across the most miserable of faces.” It sums up this film so well.  You really can’t not enjoy it and it was so lovely share such a seriously magical and all round feel good film with an audience of Cambridge film lovers.

 “Outdoor cinema in the heart of Cambridge – join us for an evening under the stars.  Three screenings left at The Biergarten Film Festival.”

As always it was an absolute pleasure to pop up alongside Franck (the chef behind La Maison du Steak) and his street food van Pull Me Cheri. He served his delicious French street food dishes.

3 more evenings of films, food for foodies from local independent vendors and drinks! You can book your tickets to Top Gun, Chef or Pulp Fiction here.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for La La Land last night, you were a truly magical audience.  It was lovely to see some familiar faces of those who were returning for more Enchanted Cinema this summer and it was also great to share an evening of great film under the stars with first timers too!

Grantchester, Cambridge

Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan star in Baz Luhrmann’s modern and typically eccentric double-Oscar-winning adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby.  We never thought that a film could do such a classic novel justice, but just as Luhrmann gave a new, modern and refreshing breath of life to Romeo + Juliet, he has created something of a masterpiece from Fitzgerald’s story in this instant classic.

A story full of luxury, debauchery, glitz and glamour. Dickie de Vere and the Dorchester Mavericks couldn’t have been a more perfect fit for the surroundings and nature of the evening.  Much Prosecco was enjoyed and the band who describe themselves as ‘a jolly good vintage’ played a fun and very ‘20s set.

Kura Kura were back serving their delicious Sri Lankan and South Indian curries.  We have loved working with these guys this summer.  It’s great to collaborate with another independent business so passionate about what they do!  We look forward to having Kura Kura feeding Enchanted Cinema goers in the future.

“And I like large parties.  They’re so intimate.  At small parties there isn’t any privacy.”

Cambridge filmmaker Robyn Wilton is selecting the independent short films that we show before each of the features at our events this summer at The Orchards.  We showed One Diving One Falling directed by Harry Cauty before The Great Gatsby.  This gorgeous short reflects on a time when women were considered to have a mental illness for expressing themselves creatively through dance.  This film explores vulnerability, delusion and insanity, combined with passion, artistry and beauty.

One Diving One Falling is a First Acts commission and is one a series of First Acts Short films presented by Screen South and the Ignition Network, in partnership with Random Acts and Arts Council England.  We are super proud to support talented young creatives aged 16-24 who deliver bold expressions of creativity in these 3 minute long short films.  We hope the audience last night enjoyed seeing work from the next generation of artists/filmmakers!

 

We can’t quite believe that the Enchanted Cinema Summer Season at The Orchard Tea Gardens Grantchester is over.  However we couldn’t have asked for a higher note to end on, or a more lovely audience to share the evening with.  Thank you to everyone who has joined us this summer and who joined us for The Great Gatsby.  We hope we see you again very soon.

Big love from Team EC x

P.S. It’s not all over!  Join us for yet more enchanting cinema at The Biergarten Film Festival next weekend, book your ticket here.
