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.
With a homegrown cast to die for, and a cultural phenomenon on release, Hugh Grant brings intelligence and warmth to his archetypal bumbling Englishman, doing the rounds of the summer weddings and falling for the glamorous American (Andie MacDowell).
From the hilarious profanity infused opening scene, to Gareth’s supposition that getting engaged is really just a couple’s deviation from an awkward silence – “The ultimate ice breaker” – this is full of classic comedy moments and insights on the institution of marriage in 90’s Britain. Seen by many as the magnum opus of Rom Com Royalty Richard Curtis (Notting Hill, Love Actually, Blackadder, Bridget Jones) you can expect a multi-tiered sweet treat, but with a nice dry British bite to it.
