For an evening of festive glamour head to Troxy this Christmas for Backyard Cinema’s Christmas Movie Spectacular!
Backyard Cinema have added new elements to the cinema going experience this Christmas with a live band, choir and spoken word performance at London’s iconic Troxy.
The venue is an art deco masterpiece decked out to the max with Christmas trees, lights and even a sleigh! The fun doesn’t stop there as the stage is flanked by towering and twinkling trees and on stage, there’s a larger-than-life Quality Street tin and massive old school television screen. This captures the nostalgia that Christmas brings each year and was an exciting visual feature.
Our highlight of the evening was spoken word performer George the Poet. His telling of the Christmas story pilled on the nostalgia and brought the audience together with tales of everything from the Christmas Day row to moving tributes to the NHS. It was a treat to have this as part of the evening spliced together with Christmas hits from Some Voices.
Some Voices are a choir that started in 2020 and have grown to almost 1000 members in the short time they’ve been around. As well as community choirs across London, Newcastle, Brighton and Cambridge, they have a company of professional singers who provided the cheery Christmas tunes to introduce the film. This got everyone in the Christmas mood while blending well with George the Poet’s spoken-word piece. Once the film began, everyone was excited to settle in; the collective laughs and reactions to Kevin’s Home Alone antics reminded us of why going to the cinema is great!
When the film finished, Some Voices closed the evening with Mariah Carey’s classic All I Want For Christmas Is You. The audience was up on their feet, dancing and singing along which left us feeling festive and uplifted.
Backyard Cinema is offering three festive films which include Love Actually, Home Alone and Elf which make it perfect for everyone from work pals to families. Tickets start from £26 and go up to £40 to be seated in a VIP booth. This is a great option to add a little extra glamour to the evening with table service throughout the film. If you’re looking to add some pizzazz to your next trip to the pictures, check out Backyard Cinema.
