NEWS: Backyard Cinema Convert Former Television Studio into Permanent Home

The immersive cinema experts are set to open Capital Studios in Wandsworth on the 13th September.

Backyard Cinema has unveiled details of its first permanent home this September, behind the iconic doors of Capital Studios at Ram Quarter in Wandsworth which has played host to music legends The Beatles and David Bowie, as well as the nostalgic ‘Ready, Steady, Cook’.

The themed cinematic experience will expand on Backyard Cinema’s previous offerings to include an all-day bar serving cocktails on tap, beer and artisan pizza, accompanied by live music. It will also include a separate 10 tap craft beer bar from Gipsy Hill Brewing Co. and will provide a residency for Mother Clucker & Honest Burgers in the large heated and seated courtyard. 

This new permanent home for Backyard Cinema will see the revival of favourite theme ‘The Winter Night Garden’, inviting audiences through a magical wardrobe, explore an enchanted forest and woodland on an adventure to find the Lost Theatre, where they can relax on Backyard’s famous giant bean bags and rediscover their favourite films. The programme is a mix of new releases, sing-a-longs and old faves, including Aladdin, Rocketman, Harry Potter, True Romance, Dirty Dancing, The Greatest Showman and Moulin Rouge. 

Talking about this news Dominic Davies, founder and creative director, Backyard Cinema, said: “When we found Capital Studios at Ram Quarter we knew we wanted to make it our new home. The sheer size of the venue will allow us to expand creatively and offer so much cool new stuff. A craft beer bar, bespoke Honest Burgers, live music, vegan ice cream and even more immersive cinematic adventures than before. In the future we’ll be adding karaoke booths and theatrical cocktail experiences as well.”
