After our tickets had been moved from July to September due to a dustbin lorry knocking into the screen (how rubbish is that), it was touch and go what the weather would throw us for our night at Backyard Cinema in Camden.
Luckily the weather gods were on our side and after a pleasant sunny day we headed on down to Stables Market for the viewing of Grand Budapest Hotel. Being rather peckish we started our night out in Honest Burger with a bottle of wine.
Probably one of my favourite burgers and very reasonably priced.
The set up at Backyard is wonderful with all tickets allowing you either a deckchair or beanbag which really should be something that Somerset House offer for their Summer Series.
We settled in with our blankets and wine and waited for the movie to begin.
It’s a great setting and you forget where you are apart from the odd faint shout from the market behind you.
The film is great, weird and wonderful – Wes Anderson’s standard style. It’s got some great actors in there playing unusual parts. It’s not for everyone’s taste but Cat and I both enjoyed it and would recommend people give it a go.
This was probably my favourite outdoor cinema experience, as much as Somerset House is a beautiful setting the comfort of the deck chairs wins it for me.
