Brought to you by The Lexi, Nomad Cinema is a roaming pop-up cinema with a difference; 100% of the Nomad's profits go to their chosen charity, The Sustainability Institute in South Africa. Since 2010, The Nomad has earned the reputation as ‘London’s best outdoor cinema’ (Evening Standard), popping up at an inspiring range of beautiful, curious and downright strange screening locations across London and beyond.
More than just providing screenings of great films in appropriately great locations, Nomad events immerse you in the flavour of the film, with added elements such as music, themed decorations, quality catering and a warm friendly welcome…
The Nomad Cinema's most popular venue, Brompton Cemetery is an iconic, beautiful and historical place - and is a perfect addition to Nomad's arsenal of wonderfully unique venues. Get cosy beneath the stars, at this mysterious but awesome venue.
Avon lady Peg, played by the totally marvellous Dianne Wiest [Parenthood, The Lost Boys, Bullets over Broadway] finds Edward alone in his castle. Created by a benevolent but totally bananas inventor, guess what Edward has at the end of his arms instead of fingers and thumbs? Yup, scissors. Not exactly convenient. Peg decides to take him back to her perfect little town that runs like clockwork, where Edward must learn about the outside world. Here he soons becomes besotted with Peg's beautiful daughter Kim, played by Winona Ryder [Reality Bites, Beetlejuice] before she was a Girl, Interrupted. And it's fair to say... with complications such as love....things start to get a little...dicey [sorry!].
A beautiful twist on the genre of fairytale, this very special piece of cinema exemplifies Tim Burton's trademark joining together of the gothic and the glorious, to bring you something deliciously macabre, touching and delightful. And where better to check out one of Burton's eerie treats than in a magnificently spooksome cemetery?
