Pop-up Screens are bringing a very special set of screenings to the Dray Walk Gallery at the Old Truman Brewery - Cinema in the Snow, complete with a snow filled grotto, a 'wardrobe' door, and lots of snow, plus suitably seasonal refreshments.
"Stuck for Christmas party ideas? Looking for something different to entertain the kids during the Christmas holidays? Or just simply love festive films? Pop Up Screens could have the answer as it transforms into The Cinema In The Snow.
Back after a sold out Summer the outdoor film specialist will be moving into the warm for one week as it transforms The Dray Walk Gallery at the Old Truman Brewery on Brick Lane into a snow filled grotto, complete with a door posing as a wardrobe, Christmas trees, mulled wine, beer, pimped Moretto hot chocolate and of course lots of real (fake) snow.
Kicking off on Tuesday 18th December until 23rd September the schedule will include
The Nightmare Before Christmas, The Muppets Christmas Carol, Elf and Gremlins. There will be up to 3 screenings per day – 1pm, 5pm and 7.45pm - making it perfect for not only meeting up with friends but as an activity for a kids day out or office Christmas party.
Doors will open 1 hour before the screening making sure people get the chance to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the festive treats on offer.
Founder of Pop Up Screens, David Leydon said; “Christmas is awesome. It’s a fact and I desperately wanted Pop Up Screens to be involved in something Christmassy in London, so we got our thinking caps on and came up with what we thought was a good idea. We tested the water a little bit and it turns out that what we thought was a good idea, lots of other people also thought it was a good idea. So we set about turning this idea into reality and a snow machine and a wardrobe later and we’re well on our way. It’s genuinely exciting to think we’re going to turn a concrete cube into a snow filled cinema, which you can only get into if you walk through a magical wardrobe. I honestly can’t wait until we open our doors and start our Christmas stint as The Cinema in the Snow.”"
