“An offer you can’t refuse.” Watch Francis Ford Coppola’s 3-time-Oscar-winning masterpiece The Godfather under the stars.

Enchanted Cinema are back. With 2 years of sell out events already under their belts, this summer they’re popping up in the iconic Cambridge location, The Orchard Tea Gardens Grantchester.

With live music from local musicians before the film, deckchairs under the trees of The Orchards draped in lights, street food, an independent pop-up bar, vintage popcorn machines and blankets… their events are all set to be as magical as ever.

There will be street food available from local vendor Guerilla Kitchen. They will be serving their delicious steamed bao. We will also have our independent bar running all night serving drinks, freshly-popped popcorn and brownies. We have food and drinks covered so please leave your picnics at home. Local musician Ed Stubbs will be performing an acoustic set from 8PM.

We are also very excited to be screening an independent short before The Godfather. We’re showing ‘Hairatage’ directed by Aisha Sanyang-Mee. Through this powerful and thought-provoking short the Bristol-based poet, journalist and filmmaker explores the social, political and personal aspects surrounding black hair through the medium of spoken word. We really hope that you will enjoy as much as we have. 

Definitely an enchanting evening. As the sun sets the lovely lighting around the seating brightens and some local Cambridge acoustic sets a beautiful evening up for a joyous night. Drink in one hand and some popcorn on my lap, reclined in a deckchair… my sort of movie night.” - Samuel Benjamin Harris, Artist

Every detail is thought of, the magical lights to the homemade brownies! Love the emphasis on everything being so ‘Cambridge’, the local street food, local musicians. Everything was so fabulous, can’t wait to bring my friends again this summer.” - Londiwe Ncube, Stylist

Each event they did here in the garden of The Gonville Hotel last summer was fully booked and that has to be put down to the unique experience they create for each show.” - Christopher Ogston, Manager of The Gonville Hotel

With a great selection of features, passionate support of local creatives and an abundance of popcorn, this team of friendly film lovers guarantee their audience a unique experience: enjoying the stars on and above the silver screen as the summer sun sets. To simply say it’s enchanting is a cop-out, but a genuine one nonetheless.” - Jonathan Howard, JHFilm
