Perfect for movie-lovers and adventure-seekers, Backyard Cinema offers an immersive cinema experience that is more than just the movies.
After nearly a decade of reinventing what it means to watch a movie in London, they have now turned their attention to the North for their very first event outside of London. The immersive cinema experts will be building a purpose-built 330-capacity, indoor Winter cinema on the platform of Depot Mayfield for a limited 10 week run which commences from Friday 21st October.
Audiences can expect to be transported on a magical journey to a cinema like no other. Having to make choices as visitors explore movie-grade sets, through tunnels of trees, magical doors to eventually discover the Enchanted Forest and home of the Lost Theater.
The screening room will be filled with custom-made giant bean bag seating for guests to get cosied up in with ushers serving seasonal cocktails and sweet treats to create the most magical place to watch a movie.
Taking residency on the platform for this limited 10 week run, Backyard Cinema will be screening a mixture of brand new releases such as ELVIS (2022), Minions: The Rise of Gru (2022), cult classics The Greatest Showman (2017), E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial ‘40th Anniversary’ (1982), and of course all-time favourite Christmas films including Elf (2003), Home Alone (1990), Love Actually (2003) and The Holiday (2006). The programming will be suitable for all ages and groups.
Joining Escape to Freight Island and The Warehouse Project as two of Depot Mayfield’s partners, Backyard Cinema will be set on the platform of the former Mayfield Train Station, where it will be the first destination project to occupy the 34,000-square-foot rooftop space. The immersive experience, which also features two communal drinking areas, street food and a live music stage, is converting the four derelict railway tracks, platforms, original ticket office, waiting room and signature cast iron roof structure to create a truly unique set up overlooking the stunning Mayfield Park, Manchester’s first new public park in 100 years.
