‘Lost World’ revealed as Backyard Cinema’s latest theme

Backyard Cinema has given us a sneak peek into a hidden jungle in the heart of South London ahead of the opening night tonight (Friday 16th September), starting naturally with Jurassic Park.



From the team who brought Romeo + Juliet to St. Mary’s Church and the Winter Garden to Winterville, London’s favourite theatrical cinema experts, Backyard Cinema are set to unveil a forgotten jungle in the heart of South London. Adequately named the ‘Lost Word’, Backyard Cinema will be screening a fantastic selection of classic action and adventure films, including childhood favourites such as The Jungle Book, Hook and The Goonies as well as Hollywood blockbusters Jurassic Park, Predator and The Legend of Tarzan.

If seeing these famous classics on the big screen again wasn’t enough already, the themed cinema experts have created their very own urban jungle to screen them, decked out with tropical trees and plants, jungle sounds and temple ruins.

Launching today (Friday 16th September), the ‘Lost World’ will see ticket holders enter through a secret entrance of temple ruins, and have to navigate their way into a land that time forgot. Once making it to the Jungle in one piece, customers will find a screening room decked out with giant beanbag seating, a huge screen and state of the art audio equipment. Grab a jungle themed cocktail from the bar and relax into a beanbag as the jungle adventure turns into a cinema experience like no other.

Starting in its founder’s back garden Backyard Cinema is a roaming, theatrical, cinema that shows a wide selection of films in a variety of iconic, unusual and immersive locations both in and outdoors around London. Often creating an immersive environment around the movie using in depth set builds, actors and live music, each show becomes a unique evening out, whilst staying true to its original ethos: somewhere cool you can watch your favourite films with great food, drinks and all your mates.
