Exciting things are happening this summer on the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, London’s historic playground, celebrated for fun and occasional licentiousness. Vauxhall Village wants to return the Gardens to their former fame and glory as the epicentre of alfresco London entertainment.

Vauxhall Village has been screening  a small selection of free films on the Pleasure Gardens throughout this summer. The films are brought to you by the Luna Cinema, the amazing  pop up Cinema Company who have provided memorable evenings at Kew Gardens, Brockwell Lido and Hampton Court Palace.

If you’re keen on spending the summer evenings basking in some film glory then its not too late there’s still a chance to see SEARCHING FOR SUGARMAN on Thursday 13th June at 8:30pm – Its an Oscar winning documentary about a ‘lost’ American musician: truly heart-warming and inspiring. A true corker of a film!

Its not only about sunshine and film watching though, the screening will also be accompanied by delicious artisanal street food stalls and a great bar courtesy of the Royal Vauxhall Tavern. Everyone is welcome to bring picnics and – if you make it early enough – to grab one of the brand new Vauxhall Village deckchairs.

HOW DO I GET THERE?!

The Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens are just 2 minutes’ walk from Vauxhall Rail and Tube stations, with a main entrance on Kennington Lane SE11 5HY. Guests are invited to get a good spot in the park from 6 pm when food and music will begin.

Right cinema goers, we’ve just come across this cool app from Odeon Cinemas which helps enhance your cinema going experience. What we really liked about it is that it seems to be the gateway to unlocking cool offers and information about the films you’re watching.

It’s called Cinime and you can download it onto your iPhone from the app store or if you’re on Android, from Google Play. Its currently compatible in 11 Odeon cinemas and when you see this sign:

You have the chance to scan and interact with posters or connect whilst watching the screening to receive exclusive content.

So what is it that you might be able to get…

Well, There’s everything from exclusive video content, to photos from the films and its stars and also vouchers. To start you off, there’s a free box of popcorn to get you started.

We think this is a cool and innovative app idea from Odeon and certainly adds a lot of value, but the argument may be whether or not it opens the door for more people to (annoyingly) play around with their phones in the cinemas whilst the film is screening. Only time will tell on this one, so we’ll have to wait and see, but if you want more information make sure you check Odeon’s website here where you can find out all about it.

Here is a list of all the Odeon cinemas which currently support the app.

  • ODEON Bath
  • ODEON Brighton
  • ODEON Guilford
  • ODEON Hatfield
  • ODEON Huddersfield
  • ODEON Liverpool One
  • ODEON London West End

Happy Cinema Going!
