Are you looking for something fun and ‘Covid safe’ to do this holiday season? I think I may have just the activity for you. Pop Up Screens have launched their immersive cinema festive season, beginning with the ‘Forbidden Forest Cinema’ just in time for Halloween, and ‘Christmas in the Snow’ to celebrate Christmas. Pop Up Screens are one of the UK’s most popular and successful immersive cinema companies. They transform venues into unique indoor environments, creating nostalgic and FUN cinema experiences.
We were excited to venture into the ‘Forbidden Forest Cinema’ in downtown Peckham at the Bussey Building to see a screening of the classic horror film, ‘IT’. We arrived at the cinema around 8.00pm (doors open at 7.30pm for the 8.30pm film), not quite sure what to to expect.
After our tickets and temperatures were checked, we were directed to the venue entrance through the spooky immersive atmosphere. We found seats, grabbed a drink at the bar (bar serves beer, wine and soft drinks), and settled in to watch the film.
What a fun, safe, and unique way to spend the 2020 festive season during this strange time. Thanks to the spooky surroundings and classic film, we left feeling spooked and full of festive spirit.
