Last year we were lucky enough to visit the super cool Backyard Cinema in South London that really is a cinema with a difference. This cinema gives you a unique experience with each and every visit.
With it being Christmas time they have gone with a wintery theme that sees you transported into a wonderful magical Snow Kingdom.
As we arrived and grabbed our tickets we waited patiently in the queue until we were handed a cute lantern to enter through a little door, behind which we were greeted with a snow covered cave and a little wobbly bridge that took us over the frozen lake us into the cinema that had been transformed into an enchanted castle.
A huge stained glass window filled the screen and a crispy white flooring that created the illusion of snow across the whole floor. Candelabras and old books were scattered around creating the perfect setting that made you feel anywhere but a cinema.
We headed to the bar to grab some sweets and took a look at the delicious looking cocktails that were on offer.
We took to our seats…well actually our cosy beanbags and snuggled under a blanket to wait for one of our favourite Christmas films – Elf.
Before the show we were treated to a short story that brought the whole cinema alive with flashing lights, dramatic music and puffs of smoke before the main film began.
Nothing could be heard from the packed audience aside from rustling of popcorn packets and fits of laugher as Will Ferrell graced then screen and came out with those all familiar catchphrases.
A trip to the backyard cinema is no ordinary cinema visit, it is an immersive experience and a feast for the senses.
If you are looking for a special way to watch on of your favourite Christmas movies then this comes highly recommend from me!
* we were given tickets for the purpose of this review and they are all my own, honest opinions.
