The Empire is a lovely family run cinema in Sandwich, Kent. I went with my family. It was lovely: little pots of ice cream at interval and everyone sang along to the film.
The Electric Cinema in Birmingham is fantastic. I went to see a double bill of Spanish movies, ‘La ardilla roja’ or ‘The Red Squirrel’ directed by Julio Medem and ‘Talk to Her’ by Pedro Almodovar, on a quiet Saturday afternoon. Between films we enjoyed a cuppa and home made chocolate cake served on china in the cinema foyer.
A bit closer to home, the excellent Parks Trust have a free Open Air Festival in the summer.
And the bizarre (but in a good way) in London: Films on Fridges, a pop up out door cinema in Hackney where the screen is surrounded by fridges. Linking ideas about waste, sustainability, industrial heritage and creativity.
