Ecto 1 and Suttonâ€™s first pop-up cinema
5th July 2014
Despite torrential rain on Saturday 27th July over 100 people braved the weather to enjoy Suttons first pop-up high street cinema. Successful Sutton, the towns business improvement district, hosted the movie Ghostbusters as part of its Sunset Cinema season four films on four nights at a pop-up cinema on the high street, all completely free.
Movie lovers settled down under umbrellas in front of a 7.5metre (24ft) screen to enjoy the Hollywood blockbuster Ghostbusters. During the day a replica of Ghostbusters Car 'Ecto 1', supplied by Star Car Hire, was on display in the high street, joined by the Ghostbusters team. The Ecto 1 Ambulance drew a huge crowd all day, with many people stopping and having their photograph taken.
The pop-up high street cinema the only one in London will provide free screenings of the classic movies to anyone who wants to relax and enjoy an evening of al fresco entertainment. Ross Feeney, Successful Sutton Chief Executive, said: The weather was not kind to us on Saturday night, but we still had a great turnout. The screen looked fantastic in the high street, and I hope that over the next three films even more people will come and enjoy Sutton. We are hoping that people come and enjoy a meal or a drink at one of our great bars and restaurants and then round off the evening with a classic movie....
