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…
Explore the beautiful ground of Fulham Palace this summer and experience Nomad Cinema at its finest. The grounds of the Palace originally covered more than 30 acres, though today only 12 acres remain. The Palace also boasts the longest moat in England. The allotments planted during the war still survive; many are still in use, allowing local people to grow their own vegetables, fruit and flowers. A real community hub is South London, Fulham Palace is a unique spot to watch Nomad's classic film screenings.
Amélie (Audrey Tautou) isn’t like other girls. She watched her goldfish disappear in a municipal swimming pool right before her very eyes, her mother died in Notre Dame Square, and her father dotes on a garden gnome. Now twenty-two, her hide-and-seek mission in Montmartre is to bring a little magic to other people’s lives. Amélie meets a lonely kook called Nino Quincampoix (Matthieu Kassovitz), and maybe it’s time for Amélie to get a taste of her own medicine.
Absolutely magical. Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s film will surely go down as one of the most beautifully shot films of all time; jam-packed with wonderful images, sequences and actors. We liked the gnome thing – you know, the postcards. So you're invited to bring with you on the night, free of charge, your own gnome. Gnomes like to get out once in a while.
