Backyard Cinema: The Christmas Labyrinth | Festive Pop Up Cinema
Christmas gardens can be tricky to maintain.
They require constant hoe, hoe, hoeing.
So it’s understandable that Backyard Cinema – London’s preeminent themed, roving cinema – has found its festive edition trapped at the heart of a sprawling, multi-roomed woodland maze.
Specifically, you’ll find it (or at least attempt to) at this year’s Winterville on Clapham Common, where it features alongside other typical festive entertainments like ice rinks, mulled wine chalets, and Mexican wrestling contests.
Of course, this isn’t your common or garden maze – on arrival, you’ll need to pick one of four doors, each of which takes you on a different path to the centre (naturally taking you past talking taxidermy and hidden tequila bars en route). Make it through, and you’ll find yourself at the two screening rooms, each of which are dressed up in beautiful Northern Lights-styled lighting and boast their own bars. Here you can stock up with deluxe popcorn, boozy hot chocolates and mulled rum cider before settling into one of their famous giant beanbag chairs.
They’re going to be screening classic festive flicks (like Elf, Home Alone and It’s A Wonderful Life), singalong nights (like Moulin Rouge and Beauty and the Beast) and a couple of wildcards (The Wizard of Oz, Bridget Jones’ Diary) across those two full-sized rooms, making it their biggest pop up to date…
… just make sure you leave plenty of time to actually find them.
NOTE: Backyard Cinema – The Christmas Labyrinth is at Winterville on Clapham Common until 22nd December. Tickets start at £18.98, and are available to book HERE.
