AMÈLIE (15) Music & Movies: The Connection @ Gonville Hotel
Aug 22 @ 6:00 pm
The next date in our ‘Music & Movies: The Connection’ festival, Enchanted Cinema in collaboration with repmusic presents Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s iconic artistic masterpiece starring Audrey Tautou.
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
repmusic prides itself of providing the highest level of live music performance, in London and across East Anglia. Offering music from a number of genres, but specialising in jazz, swing, and pop, we’re delighted to have worked together to put together this exciting festival of Music & Movies, where repmusic has specifically chosen acts or performances that represent the music featured in our festival programme. At each event a repmusic ensemble will perform an extended programme to get our audiences in the perfect mood and mindset for the movie to follow.
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.
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.

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…

DIRTY DANCING (15) @ Gonville Hotel

Have the time of your life watching the ’80s classic Dirty Dancing back on the big screen, under the stars in the beautiful gardens of The Gonville Hotel.

Spending the summer at a Catskills resort with her family, Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman falls in love with the camp’s dance instructor, Johnny Castle. Before the screening, there will be live music by some of the best local musicians in Cambridge getting you into the mood for the night ahead.

Baby (Jennifer Grey) is one listless summer away from the Peace Corps. Hoping to enjoy her youth while it lasts, she’s disappointed when her summer plans deposit her at a sleepy resort in the Catskills with her parents. Her luck turns around, however, when the resort’s dance instructor, Johnny (Patrick Swayze), enlists Baby as his new partner, and the two fall in love. Baby’s father forbids her from seeing Johnny, but she’s determined to help him perform the last big dance of the summer.

“Endlessly quotable, strangely fascinating and immensely charming, there’s a reason that this retains an evergreen appeal. And it takes a hard heart not to grin at the final, euphoric dance number” – Caroline Westbrook – Empire.

Getting you in the mood before the screening will be live music by some of the best local musicians in Cambridge. In addition, the incredible Arepa’s Station will be giving us a taste of Latin flavours of Venezuela’s street food with delicious gluten-free Arepas. BrewBoard will also be serving their stunning craft beer from our brand new bar, so keep your picnics at home.

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY (15) @ Gonville Hotel

One of the most anticipated films of the year, Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music, and lead singer Freddie Mercury, all in the beautiful gardens of The Gonville Hotel. This is not to be missed.

Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

“Frankly, if you are not cheering along with the crowd as Mercury belts out an ultra-satisfying rendition of “We are the Champions,” then a doctor should check your pulse.” – Mara Reinstein – Us Weekly

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 incredible Pull Me Cheri will also be serving up a delicious selection of pulled meats with a French twist in his stunning Renault Estafette.

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD (15) @ Gonville Hotel

In a post-apocalyptic wasteland, a woman rebels against a tyrannical ruler in search for her homeland with the aid of a group of female prisoners, a psychotic worshipper, and a drifter named Max.

Years after the collapse of civilization, the tyrannical Immortan Joe enslaves apocalypse survivors inside the desert fortress the Citadel. When the warrior Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) leads the despot’s five wives in a daring escape, she forges an alliance with Max Rockatansky (Tom Hardy), a loner and former captive. Fortified in the massive, armoured truck the War Rig, they try to outrun the ruthless warlord and his henchmen in a deadly high-speed chase through the Wasteland.

“It’s like a monster-truck motocross competition staged by a more nihilistic version of Cirque du Soleil, where the stakes are life and death”  Washington Post.

Despite their differences, the two men soon develop an unexpected bond while confronting racism and danger in an era of segregation.
