Rick Stein’s Sunset Cinema – FAQ’s

What is the format for the night?
The evenings will kick off at 7:30pm with a drinks reception and complimentary glass of fizz. From 8:00pm onwards you will be asked to make your way through to the cinema where you will be met by our Pop-Up Picture Company host who will provide you with your seat numbers.

The screening will begin at 8:30pm and will last for 2 – 2.5 hours depending on your film’s running time. During the first half of the film you will be served a delicious two-course meal. This will be served on our Pop-Up Picture Company trays to a low table in front of each two –person sofa.  Roughly two thirds of the way through your film there will be a short 15-minute interval during which your interval drinks will be served to your seats and our Pop-Up Picture Company usherettes will offer you Tom Kerridge’s famous homemade ice cream. On certain nights, our bar will be open post-film with a live pianist for those who would like to continue the night!

What does the ticket price include?
On arrival you will be greeted with your glass of fizz or alternative beverage (beer, wine or soft drink). You will then enjoy a 2-course meal curated by Rick Stein served to your cinema seat followed by a tub of Tom Kerridge’s Hand & Flowers ice-cream during the interval.  And of course, the film!
