Enchanted Cinema – Back to the Future

Sunday 16th June 2019 @ 7:15 pm - 11:10 pm

Back to the Future - Enchanted Cinema at Gonville Hotel - 16th June 2019

In the 80s cult classic, Back to the Future, Marty McFly is thrown back to the 50s when an experiment by his eccentric scientist friend Doc Brown doesn’t go to plan. Travel through time and nostalgia (by Delorean of course) under the stars.

In this 1980s sci-fi classic, small-town California teen Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) is thrown back into the ’50s when an experiment by his eccentric scientist friend Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) goes awry. Travelling through time in a modified DeLorean car, Marty encounters young versions of his parents (Crispin Glover, Lea Thompson), and must make sure that they fall in love or he’ll cease to exist. Even more dauntingly, Marty has to return to his own time and save the life of Doc Brown.

“Every bit as classy, clever and cockle-warming as it was 30 years ago.” – Time Out

Getting you in the mood before the screening will be live music by some of the best local musicians in Cambridge. In addition, we have award-winning street food vendors, Mac Daddy, who will be serving their legendary artisan Mac n Cheese. We also have our brand new bar where BrewBoard will be serving their stunning craft beer, so keep your picnics at home.

Enchanted Cinema is back for its 5th-year of inner-city cinematic magic. They return this year to one of their favourite venues, The Gonville Hotel’s magical gardens, in the centre of our beautiful city.

These guys are all about creating an original and vibrant cinema scene that offers an exciting way to watch a great film. Expect to be wowed by a short film before each screening, magical light installations and live music from local artists. These events are set to be the most magical of the summer.

Team EC has brought together some of the best street food vendors in Cambridge who will be serving up delicious food for Enchanted Cinema ticket holders and there will be an out-door bar and popcorn kiosk along with live music from local musicians until the screening which will begin at sunset for each film.

Seating is not allocated so be sure to arrive in advance to choose your deckchair. We are a rain or shine event so if the Great British weather surprises us and the skies open, we will have waterproof ponchos available and the show will go on!

Sit back in a deckchair, fresh popcorn and a drink in hand, and experience cinema as you never have before this summer…
