UPDATE - POSTPONED UNTIL MAY BANK HOLIDAY - TOO COLD!
This Easter Experience Cinema (previously) and The Book Club (previously) are coming together for a great big film-focussed outdoor party, with 3 classic music films (as sing-alongs and dance-alongs), fancy dress, and a Silent Disco. Note that there is no seating - treat it like a big festival or gig.
"The Book Club ‘King of Street Parties’ and Experience Cinema team up to bring you a brand new event for Easter. Experience films on the giant screen with wireless headphones to allow you to dance, drink and party along to the movie at your hearts content. Then dance the night away with our headphone disco.
FRIDAY 29TH – Sing-a-long to GREASE (1978)
Grab your leather jackets, comb and pink ladies get up as Friday night we join Danny and Sandy for an all singing, all dancing screening of 'Grease'. It will feel like summer has arrived early as you belt out all the classic hits including Summer Nights, Born to Hand Jive, You're the one that I want and Grease Lightnin'. Uh Well-a Well-a, Huh!
SATURDAY 30TH – Dance-a-long to DIRTY DANCING (1987)
Saturday is dirty boogie time as Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey grace our screen for the 1987 cult classic 'Dirty Dancing'. You'll be shaking your hips to 'Do you love me' and potentially flattening a good friend by attempting 'The Lift'! Our resident dance stud will also be on hand for any of you ladies who can't find a partner with enough muscle. What's more, everyone who brings a watermelon will get a free watermelon cocktail. I told you we mean business!
SUNDAY 31ST – Concert style screening of PURPLE RAIN (1984)
Sunday's finale is left to no other than the High Priest of Pop with a very special concert style screening of Academy and Grammy award winning 'Purple Rain'. We will be encouraging you to wave your hands in the air and salute our mini wonder as he belts out hit after hit including I Would Die 4 U, When Doves Cry and Let's Go Crazy.
Please note that all our screenings are non seated affairs. All you Kings and Queens of the dance floor will be encouraged to sing, dance and clap along to these cult classics. Limited seating is available around the car park but we, of course, want you all to get your party shoes on and keep those feet a tapping!
The team from FRAME dance and fitness studio will also be on hand before every screening to show you all the moves and then guide you along as you master the actions of your on screen heroes.
Our 70's & 80's dress up box will also be available for any of you that fancy a bit of last minute dress up, and The Book Club bar and a fine array of street food and cocktails will be in full flow to make sure all your party needs are met.
And the party doesn't stop there as after every screening will be a exclusive 70s & 80s inspired Silent Disco so you can dance the night away.
Fancy dress is not enforced but encouraged. Please note that Experience Cinema does not accept responsibility for any lost wigs, jackets, or street cred!!"
