Enchanted Cinema – The Grand Budapest Hotel

Saturday 15th June 2019 @ 7:15 pm - 11:15 pm

The Grand Budapest Hotel - Enchanted Cinema at Gonville Hotel 15th June 2019

The Grand Budapest Hotel is another of Wes Anderson’s visual masterpieces with its distinct colour palettes and star studded cast, a must watch this summer!

Starring Ralph Fiennes, Adrien Brody, Jeff Goldblum and Jude Law, The Grand Budapest Hotel tells a story of a legendary concierge and his lobby boy at this renowned hotel.

In the 1930s, the Grand Budapest Hotel is a popular European ski resort, presided over by concierge Gustave H. (Ralph Fiennes). Zero, a junior lobby boy, becomes Gustave’s friend and protege. Gustave prides himself on providing first-class service to the hotel’s guests, including satisfying the sexual needs of the many elderly women who stay there. When one of Gustave’s lovers dies mysteriously, Gustave finds himself the recipient of a priceless painting and the chief suspect in her murder.

Getting you in the mood before the screening will be live music by some of the best local musicians in Cambridge. In addition, Road Dogs will be joining us and serving up their delicious American style hotdogs and burgers form the “Big rig”, using only 100% British beef. We also have our brand-new bar where BrewBoard will be serving their stunning craft beer, so keep your picnics at home.

“Having the Wes Anderson meter cranked up to 10 in Grand Budapest Hotel makes the movie a wondrous celebration of everything that the filmmaker stands for and holds dear to his heart.” – Sandy Schaefer

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…
