‘Abode’ and Backyard Cinema

Abode apartments opposite The Jetty, Greenwich Peninsula

19 May – 2 June 2017


Backyard Cinema fans will already know that the pop-up theatre organiser creates film experiences in only the most unique of London dwellings. Past screenings have taken place under a blanket of twinkling fairy lights suspended over the cobbles of Camden Market, and Baz Luhrmann’s exquisite Romeo & Juliet was screened — complete with live choir — before the candle-lit pews of Marylebone’s magnificent St Mary’s Church.

Our own intimate screenings take place within the film-set-worthy apartments designed by Rosa Park and Richard Stapleton, the pair behind the achingly gorgeous magazine Cereal.

It’s a considered collaboration, where the impeccable design on-screen will seep into reality. Film viewers will arrive at the water’s edge and enter the apartments to find interiors by Conran + Partners designed in a minimal modernist style. Think polished concrete floors, blackened ash, chevron tiles and lots of glass.

And the show-stopper…the terrace. Enough to sit 30, cinema-goers will walk through to the open air to find espaliers and greenery – the kind of space most Londoners can only dream of. This is urban living at its most tranquil; a place you wouldn’t mind settling in during a balmy evening spent with friends — and the ideal backdrop to the silver screen’s most striking productions.
