Gonville Hotel, Cambridge, CB1 1LY
Kicking our first full weekend of our 2019 Summer Season at the beautiful Gonville Hotel, we bring you the winner of 66 awards including an Oscar, A Star Is Born. Featuring the star-studded cast such as Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, this year’s big hit!
Seasoned musician Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper), discovers and falls in love with struggling artist Ally (Lady Gaga). She has just about given up on her dream to make it big as a singer until Jackson coaxes her into the spotlight. But even as Ally's career takes off, the personal side of their relationship is breaking down, as Jackson fights an ongoing battle with his own internal demons.
“The new A Star Is Born, directed by Bradley Cooper and starring himself and Lady Gaga, wrings tears from its romance and thrills from a steadfast belief in old-fashioned, big-feeling cinema.” - Manohla Dargis - The NY Times
Getting you in the mood before the screening will be live music by some of the best local musicians in Cambridge. In addition, Pull Me Cheri will be joining us to serve their delicious selection of pulled meats with a French twist in his stunning Renault Estafette. We also have our brand-new bar where BrewBoard will be serving their stunning craft beer, so keep your picnics at home.
Enchanted Cinema is back for its 5th-year of inner-city cinematic magic. They return this year to one of their favourite venues, The Gonville Hotel’s magical gardens, in the centre of our beautiful city.
These guys are all about creating an original and vibrant cinema scene that offers an exciting way to watch a great film. Expect to be wowed by a short film before each screening, magical light installations and live music from local artists. These events are set to be the most magical of the summer.
Team EC has brought together some of the best street food vendors in Cambridge who will be serving up delicious food for Enchanted Cinema ticket holders and there will be an out-door bar and popcorn kiosk along with live music from local musicians until the screening which will begin at sunset for each film.
Seating is not allocated so be sure to arrive in advance to choose your deckchair. We are a rain or shine event so if the Great British weather surprises us and the skies open, we will have waterproof ponchos available and the show will go on!
Sit back in a deckchair, fresh popcorn and a drink in hand, and experience cinema as you never have before this summer…
