Who said films have to be screened in a dark, cold, room? Godolphin and Latymer became the newest venue to scrap this notion by introducing Sunset Cinema on Tuesday 5 June. Over 60 guests joined us for an open air screening of the box office hit Darkest Hour on the front lawn as the sun set over the backdrop of the school's historic buildings for this magical evening under the stars. Guests arrived early to reserve their spot amongst the atmospheric war memorabilia which set the scene for this epic tale, including Churchill's own desk setup in front of the screen.
Guests enjoyed the delicious hot dogs from our local favourite Icelandic hot dog company – Chilly Katz. Providing 4 options of delicious hot dog toppings and Gin & Elderflower slushies all evening, we were spoilt for choice.
The film was, as it promised to be, a huge hit. As the evening entered its darkest hour, we withstood the slight chill in the air with everyone huddled together and wrapped in blankets.
A big thank you to all those who came and supported us with this new event, it was lovely to see so many of you there. We look forward to bringing Sunset Cinema back for the next academic year.
