Enchanted Cinema presents THE GREAT GATSBY
Thursday 20th May 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm£19.13
Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan star in Baz Luhrmann’s modern and typically eccentric double Oscar winning adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s, The Great Gatsby, all in the beautiful gardens of The Gonville Hotel.
Midwest native Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire), arrives in 1922 New York in search of the American dream. Nick, a would-be writer, moves in next-door to millionaire Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) across the bay from his cousin Daisy (Carey Mulligan) and her philandering husband Tom (Joel Edgerton). Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the wealthy and as he bears witness to their illusions and deceits, he pens a tale of impossible love, dreams, and tragedy.
“This is fantastically enjoyable, and a blast. It is wild and rampant and thrilling.”- Deborah Ross – The Spectator
Enchanted Cinema is back for its 7th-year of inner-city cinematic magic. We return this year to one of our favourite venues, The Gonville Hotel’s magical gardens. Just off Parkers Piece, our installation garden screen has moved to the rear hidden garden of the Gonville hotel, with beautiful intimacy, and we will be collaborating further with the hotel to offer a one of a kind experience with outdoor (and undercover) drinks and food in an upmarket setting. Come along to a private, enchanting cinema area just for our customers, where you will experience live music ahead of the screening.
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, 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…

The screening will begin approximately 2 hours after doors open.
