Backyard Cinema


What started as a passion project in its founders’ very own back garden, Backyard Cinema is now known as one of London’s leading alternative cinema experiences. The UK’s only themed cinema has transported its audience to 80s sunshine at Miami Beach, plunged them deep into The Lost World’s prehistoric jungle, and sent them to cinema in the stars at Mission to Mars. It ran a five year sell out Romeo+Juliet in a candlelit church with a live choir, showed twinkly festive screenings at London’s alternative Christmas festival, Winterville, and transformed plenty more pop-ups across the capital. 

Backyard Cinema takes its audience to another world, with exciting interactive backdrops and nostalgic sets alongside all your favourite movies, and a seasonal rotation of brand new events that have something for everyone.

Furthermore, sip on a signature Palm Tree Cocktail, a boozy Slush Puppy or a cold craft beer while you can tuck into a pre-film feast. Share artisanal pizzas and loaded nachos from the Studio Bar, or head outside to The Yard to enjoy tasty smashed patty burgers from Honest Burgers' Test Kitchen.
