Past Event: THE GODFATHER (15)


AUGUST, 2017

The Orchard Tea Gardens
Grantchester, Cambridge

We’ve waited a long time to show this gangster classic.  It’s one of our all time favourite films and it was an absolute pleasure sharing an evening of classic cinema with so many fans of The Godfather.  It was lovely too to hear that some were watching it for the first time under the stars with us.  We hope everyone enjoyed it as much as we do every single time

One of the nicest guys we know, Harri Beasley, played a magical acoustic set before the film.  He runs a music night at The Earl of Beaconsfield on Mill Road every Thursday night with fellow local musician Tom Petie, co-founder of Unpluggedin Cambridge.

Cambridge filmmaker Robyn Wilton is selecting the independent short films that we show before each of the features at our events this summer at The Orchards.  We showed Hairatage directed by Aisha Sanyang-Mee.  It is a First Acts commission and is one a series of First Acts Short films presented by Screen South and the Ignition Network, in partnership with Random Acts and Arts Council England.  We are super proud to support talented young creatives aged 16-24 who deliver bold expressions of creativity in these 3 minute long short films.  We hope the audience last night enjoyed seeing work from the next generation of artists/filmmakers!

“Friendship is everything. Friendship is more than talent. It is more than the government. It is almost the equal of family.”  Don Corleone

Thank you for everyone who joined us at The Orchard Tea Gardens Grantchester for an evening of cinema, drinks, live music and magical outdoor cinema.  We hope to see you again soon.

Big love from Team EC x
