The Pop-up Picture Company – Perfect for Summer
June 23, 2017
Enjoy a luxurious film and pop-up food experience this summer with Rick Stein’s sunset cinema.
UK film-lovers adore attending pop-up film screenings in the summer months at stunning locations. This year Rick Stein’s sunset cinema combines this with exquisite Michelin-starred quality food served prior to the showing of the films.
The Pop-Up Picture Compaany idea first evolved from four friends including celebrated chef, Tom Kerridge who wanted to bring a culinary movie experience to a wider audience. They hosted their first event in an Old Town Hall in Marlow back in December 2016 and managed to sell out 4,200 seats as soon as it launched.
The latest edition started on the 21st June at the historic Cliveden House, which has been in operation for over 350 years in the renowned walled spa garden. It has captivating views overlooking the Thames and Chiltern Hills.
Tickets are also available for Chewton Glen Hotel in Hampshire from the 9th July. On the edge of New Forest National Park and a short distance from the magical Solent coast, this is another superb venue to enjoy classic films along with classic dishes.
The mouthwatering menu curated by Rick Stein will include his famous summery seafood dishes, which are sourced from his trusted, local and artisanal suppliers. Rumoured dishes include sashimi of scallop, salmon and tuna as a starter and Rick Stein’s delicious fish pie as the main course. It will also contain other options such as a lamb dish and a vegetarian option to ensure all tastes are catered for.
Expect a diverse offering for the film screenings which will include The Good, The Bad & The Ugly, Gladiator, Dirty Dancing, About Time and La La Land. There are very few tickets remaining for Cliveden House and only a limited supply for Chewton Glen. There are rumours of further multi-chef collaborations in London later on this summer.
Tickets are £65 per person and include the film screening, a two-course meal and last but not least, Tom Kerridge’s famous Hand & Flowers ice cream which will be served during the interval.
