“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.”
We’ve popped up in the garden of The Cambridge Blue, The Red Lion Grantchester, The Gonville Hotel and The Orchard Tea Gardens Grantchester. We’re moving indoors for the winter and popping up in the beautiful and cosy Robinson Theatre.
Saturday 16th of December, save the date. Enchanted Cinema presents: A Christmas Film Festival is a fundraising project in aid of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices. EACH provides care and support for children and young people with life-threatening illnesses as well as end of life care for dying children and their families.
A Christmas pop-up cafe will be running all day next door to the theatre. So you can enjoy cosy hot drinks, homemade cakes and brownies before and after the film + mulled wine & mince pies and a few more festive foodie surprises.
Will and Ellen founded Enchanted in the summer of 2015 and have spent the last few years loving bringing magic to the Cambridge Arts scene through cinema events which merge decor from local artists, locally sourced food, live music, drinks and great films.
This Christmas Ellen is running A Christmas Film Festival as well as a Cambridge Prize Draw on Cambridge Market (info coming soon, watch this space!). Both in aid of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.
