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…
Discover an intimate secret garden in the heart of London’s Bloomsbury, hidden in the grounds of a wonderful charitY. Coram is the UK’s first children’s charity, established as a refuge for abandoned children by Captain Thomas Coram who, in 1720, returned from sea and was determined to help the children he saw abandoned on London’s streets. His 19-year campaign finally caught the attention of King George II who, in 1739, gave Captain Coram a Royal Charter to create the Foundling Hospital in Bloomsbury, which was then surrounded by fields. You can head to Coram's secret, and beautifully lit garden to watch Nomad's special screenings...
“A picture with a smile – and perhaps, a tear” is promised in the first line of Charlie Chaplin’s 1921 masterpiece and we agree…we think that even the most grown up and sensible of cynics out there will be charmed by The Kid.
This classic tale follows good old Charlie’s most loved character – the bumbling but good hearted tramp, decked out in his iconic baggy trousers, humongous shoes and bushy moustache – who finds an abandoned baby and tells of their misadventures, living in the slums of the 1920s.
