THE BLUES BROTHERS (15)
at The Red Lion, Grantchester
What a way to kick off Enchanted Cinema’s Summer Season 2016!
Team EC spent the day transforming the garden of The Red Lion in Grantchester into a fairy tale
setting. 135 deckchairs were set up, Nemitode lighting installed their mystical fiber-optic
installations in trees, popcorn was popped into vintage stamped bags, lanterns were hung and velvet
curtains were draped over the entrance…
As the day of sunshine drew to a close, a line of eager Enchanted Cinema-goers formed a line, one by one entering the
garden of Enchanted Cinema.
Drinks from The Enchanted Cinema Bar flowed as local musicians set a seriously soulful mood with their rhythm and blues. Popcorn was crunched, food from The Red Lion’s BBQ was ordered and photos were taken. What a turn out!
As the screening grew closer, our audience were settled for a cosy evening under the stars. Sitting back in deckchairs, popcorn and drinks in hand Will and Ellen were as enthusiastic as ever as they introduced their first screening of the year.
Before The Blues Brothers got into full swing, we screened a short film (City Sickness) made by Jonnie Howard, a local talent. Once the music started there was no stopping foot-tapping and humming along, though from the outside that was all you could hear as everyone was locked into the film through our Enchanted Cinema headsets!
A massive thank you goes out to our volunteers, The Red Lion Grantchester, Jonnie Howard for his great short, Nemitode Lighting, our magical musicians and of course every one who came down to share a magical evening of outdoor cinema to the backdrop of Grantchester Meadows.
See you again soon for the next instalment…
