Pop-up cinema experts bring Drive Thru Cinema to Sheffield this summer!

16 July 2020

This summer, The Village Screen pop-up cinema is bringing a brand-new cinematic experience to the lush grounds of Kenwood Hall Hotel in Nether Edge - The Village Screen Drive Thru Cinema.

The Village Screen team have been delivering sell out, intimate and quirky cinematic events for the people of the North and across the UK for the past five years. They have screened films in caves, historical swimming pools, hotels, monasteries, woodland areas and more. They promise that their Drive Thru Cinema will be just as original, with DJ entertainment delivered to your car, as well as street food and drink deliveries available, all whilst following social distancing rules.

Between 21 -26 July, they will be screening 6 films in the beautiful grounds of the hotel on their giant 24ft inflatable screen and cinema-goers will be able to choose from films such as Back to the Future, Thelma and Louise, Hidden Figures and Knives Out. Audiences will be able to watch the films each evening from the comfort of their own cars, with each car being given its own speaker system.

The Village Screen promises to keep their Drive Thru events independent, intimate, fun and safe. They are working with local food traders Percy & Lily’s and Elly Joy to deliver a delicious cinema menu which will cater for all dietary requirements. Audiences will be able to pre-order street food up to 48 hours before each event commences via an exciting new online delivery service that The Village Screen have partnered with.

Attendees will also be able to order drinks, popcorn and snack deliveries each night via the online delivery service and enjoy DJ entertainment in their cars before each screening commences.  

Adhering to social distancing rules, the events are perfect for current times while. On site toilets will be cleaned after each use and hand washing facilities will be available. Everything will be conducted in a socially distanced manner, with plenty of space between cars and The Village Screen promises to make the grounds look extra beautiful with lots of magical lighting.
