Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s artistic masterpiece starring Audrey Tautou has become an iconic feature in French cinema.
Amélie is a fanciful comedy about a young woman who discretely orchestrates the lives of the people around her, creating a world exclusively of her own making. Shot in over 80 Parisian locations, acclaimed director Jean-Pierre Jeunet (“Delicatessen”; “The City of Lost Children”) invokes his incomparable visionary style to capture the exquisite charm and mystery of modern-day Paris through the eyes of a beautiful ingénue.
“This film is filled with airy whimsical charm the way that a chocolate soufflé is filled with air. Audrey Tatou is just right as Amélie, a perfect gamine in a Lulu haircut.” – Nell Minow
Getting you in the mood before the screening will be live music by some of the best local musicians in Cambridge. The screening will be accompanied by Azahar who will be serving you a taste of Spanish street food such as bocatas, chorizo burgers and authentic paella. We also have our brand new bar where BrewBoard will be serving their stunning craft beer, so keep your picnics at home.
The music of Amélie is instantly recognisable, so what better way to prepare for the Amélie film showing than London pianist Dennis Francis performing music from the Amélie soundtrack and other classic piano movie scores.
Enchanted Cinema is back for its 5th-year of inner-city cinematic magic. They return this year to one of their favourite venues, The Gonville Hotel’s magical gardens, in the centre of our beautiful city.
These guys are all about creating an original and vibrant cinema scene that offers an exciting way to watch a great film. Expect to be wowed by a short film before each screening, magical light installations and live music from local artists. These events are set to be the most magical of the summer.
Team EC has brought together some of the best street food vendors in Cambridge who will be serving up delicious food for Enchanted Cinema ticket holders and there will be an out-door bar and popcorn kiosk along with live music from local musicians until the screening which will begin at sunset for each film.
Seating is not allocated so be sure to arrive in advance to choose your deckchair. We are a rain or shine event so if the Great British weather surprises us and the skies open, we will have waterproof ponchos available and the show will go on!
Sit back in a deckchair, fresh popcorn and a drink in hand, and experience cinema as you never have before this summer…
