My boyfriend surprised me with this amazing experience for my Birthday on Saturday! Despite it being lockdown, I was shocked that I hadn’t really heard much about this before!
Callum and Amy came to my garden to set up our outdoor cinema experience at around 3:30pm, just before sundown. They were both very professional and my boyfriend mentioned that they had been extremely helpful throughout the whole booking/planning process.
It took them around an hour to set it up fully which I thought was amazing considering the amount of effort they put in. Even though they completely set up everything, they made sure to give us a few instructions in terms of how to use the projector and the popcorn machine. They also let us know which things needed to go inside before we went to sleep.
My boyfriend and I got a slight discount on a few of the things included however, the full price starts from around £120 and then you pay for extras including refreshments and chairs etc. If you would like more information on prices, click here.
In terms of the visual experience, the lights all around the screen and the popcorn machine were beautiful and it completely lit up the garden when it got dark which was so lovely. I thought the popcorn machine was a really nice touch and I loved the fact that they put out 6 deckchairs, each with a blanket to keep you warm (as it was freezing!). The cold didn’t really bother any of us as we had hot water bottles and blankets so we forgot about it after a while!
When we started getting ready to watch the film, we found that the contrast on the screen was a little off however, this wasn’t a problem at all. My boyfriend called Callum and he answered immediately and told us exactly how to change it which was so helpful.
I think what I loved most about The Roaming Cinema were the personal touches. The amount of care and effort put into making this experience special was absolutely brilliant and both Callum and Amy were so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for them.
As we are coming up to summer, The Roaming Cinema should definitely be on your list of things to do. I couldn’t recommend the company enough and everyone should experience this at least once!
If you are thinking of booking, The Roaming Cinema covers areas including: Kent, London and the South East.
