This ’80s Rom-Com classic stars cinema legends Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan. Can men and women ever just be friends? Come and join us for one of the most iconic films of all time in the beautiful Gonville Hotel.
In 1977, college graduates Harry Burns (Billy Crystal), and Sally Albright (Meg Ryan), share a contentious car ride from Chicago to New York, during which they argue about whether men and women can ever truly be strictly platonic friends. Ten years later, Harry and Sally meet again at a bookstore, and in the company of their respective best friends, Jess (Bruno Kirby) and Marie (Carrie Fisher), attempt to stay friends without sex becoming an issue between them.
“When Harry Met Sally is a beautiful, brainy, touching and lilting romantic comedy that should touch the heartstrings of lovers and those yearning to be in love everywhere.” – Hollywood Reporter.
We will be joined by Cambridge’s amazing local musicians, who will be getting you into the mood before the screening starts. In addition, the award winning street food by Mac Daddy, who will be serving his legendary artisan Mac n Cheese. We also have our brand new bar where BrewBoard will be serving their stunning craft beer, so keep your picnics at home!
For our When Harry Met Sally feature, Repmusic presents ‘Robin Phillips Sings & Plays: Harry Connick jr’, performing classic HCjr tunes, many of which he recorded on the original When Harry Met Sally soundtrack, projecting Harry to international fame.
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…
