Enchanted Cinema – Mean Girls

Friday 2nd August 2019 @ 6:45 pm - 10:30 pm

Mean Girls - Enchanted Cinema at Gonville Hotel

This fetch film (stop trying to make fetch happen), is not one to be missed this summer!

This 2004 cult classic Mean Girls, is a 2004 comedy written by Tina Fey, where Cady is initially a hit at her new school with the plastics until she makes the mistake of falling in love with the ex-boyfriend of alpha Plastic, Regina George.

Teenager Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan) was educated in Africa by her scientist parents. When her family moves to the suburbs of Illinois, Cady finally gets to experience public school and gets a quick primer on the cruel, tacit laws of popularity that divide her fellow students into tightly knit cliques. She unwittingly finds herself in the good graces of an elite group of cool students dubbed “the Plastics,” but Cady soon realizes how her shallow group of new friends earned this nickname.

“Mean Girls has the same fancifully dead-on tone as the 1995 high-school comedy “Clueless” without the sweetness because, hey, these snits are mean.” – USA Today

We will be joined by the incredible Arepa’s Station, sharing the Latin flavours of Venezuela street food with delicious gluten-free Arepas.

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…
