It’s called Backyard Cinema because that’s how it started – with a bunch of mates in a garden watching 'Jurassic Park' projected on a bedsheet

If you are a fan of outdoor cinema, quirky locations and sets then you will love Backyard Cinema. So called because it started in the founders backyard. Similar to Luna Cinema but taking a fresh look at what it means to watch a movie in cool surroundings.


L.A. Nights at The Roundhouse

In July, they’ll be taking over the outdoor terrace at Camden’s Roundhouse for ‘L.A. Nights’ – a pop up beach with its own open air cinema. There’ll be cocktail bars, leafy palm trees, and Backyard Cinema’s now-signature beanbag seating surrounding the screen, onto which they’ll be projecting cult classics like Dirty Dancing and Clueless; recent releases including Bohemian Rhapsody and sing-a-long showings of Grease and The Greatest Showman.

Romeo & Juliet Location

While the cinema isn’t cheap, Backyard Cinema are providing those with a little expendable cash the option to experience something unique, pocket-friendly and fun. The sing-a-longs are sure to be a blast and we are a sucker for Romeo & Juliet and we are still in awe of Secret Cinema’s event last summer.

Backyard Cinema returns with L.A. Nights from 18th-28th July, and Romeo + Juliet from 20th-31st August 2019.
