As the chilly spring temperature gives way to summer warmth, catching a flick at Backyard Cinema is a great way of spending a balmy evening. Miami Beach, the latest instalment from Backyard Cinema, promises to bring the Miami heat to Borough with a tropical beach and exotic cocktails to accompany screenings of classic films and blockbusters. Sticking to the tropical theme, guests are handed flip-flops (what better way to feel sand between toes) at the door and encouraged to wear tropical outfits.

Whether it’s a night out with friends, date night or an evening with the family, Backyard Cinema has it covered with new and old classics such as Back to the Future, Dirty Dancing and Scarface to La La Land, Lego Batman and Moana. Furthermore, Backyard Cinema is the first permanent themed cinema in London with an exciting selection of seasons planned throughout the year, treating customers to a completely different experience every time they go. Since moving into its new permanent home various themes have been produced: a jungle adventure, Lost World, The Last Chapel and an enchanted Christmas forest, and The Winter Night Garden.

Excited at the prospect of re –creating a Miami style beach this season, Dominic Davies the company founder said:

“We cannot wait to fill our cinema with 10 tons of sand and show some of the best films the cinematic world has to offer. Make sure you paint your toe nails, ticket holders will have the chance to swap civilian shoes for our very own Backyard Cinema flip flops making this a truly remarkable experience. We’ve added exciting elements to make this summer our best yet.”
