Famous for its huge screenings in Camden Lock Place – Backyard Cinema is BACK and this year they’re offering something new.
The Cuban Screen, hidden deeper into the market, becomes a place of discovery where cinema goers can enjoy a smaller more intimate experience. With only 50 seats a night this exclusive area becomes a “secret little haven of film lover’s joy”. A wide range of handpicked independent films, documentaries, unusual cults and ‘ones that got away’, make up the program. It has been inspired into creation by outdoor cinema lovers who have seen Back to the Future & the Goonies one to many times under the stars.
Sat on the cobble stones in the closed and quiet area of the market, surrounded by festoon lighting and under the stars film lovers will come together to enjoy brilliant and ‘unknown’ favourites including the likes of mockumentary What we do in the Shadows, heart stopping and beautiful horror It Follows, British Indie Submarine and Oscar nominated Wild.
NOT JUST THE FILMS: Now this might be a smaller more intimate screen but it is still part of the Camden Market & Backyard Cinema Film Festival which means access to great food and drinks. The Cuban bar will be serving a selection of summer cocktails, beers and wine along with a choice of food from the specially created Cinema Menu of Cuban snacks.
There will also be some special surprises for some of these screenings including guest appearances, Q&A’s and other Backyard Cinema special touches.
