The Picture House venue – lit up to tease us of what is to come!

We promised we would soon be able to share details of the Pop up Picture House, and that time is now. We think this is a really fun use of a premises that would otherwise be empty, so here we go:

The highlights:

  • -Located in the old Assembly Rooms, at the top of the High St.
  • -Pop Up Picture house, for 1 month
  • -Classic films, plus a meal.
  • -Food from Tom Kerridge’s team

Here’s all the details straight from the source:

An accidental idea brought to life in a local pub by four mates discussing their favourite food and movies – The Pop Up Picture House in Marlow is set to be a mouth-watering movie experience like no other!

tom-kerridge-outside-pop-upFor one month only, Tom Kerridge and friends are inviting moviegoers to experience Marlow’s first pop-up cinema. Prepare to be treated to delicious, wholesome comfort food whilst watching Tom and co.’s favourite films in a comfy, home-like environment.

The Pop Up Picture House will be located in the amazing setting above Steamer Trading, where the Assembly Rooms used to be. Screening a variety of films including cult hits, Christmas classics and family favourites, The Pop Up Picture House is bound to be a box office smash!

Appealing to film buffs and foodies alike, the one month pop-up will launch on the 1st of December, with tickets going on sale from the 8th of November. Each ticket will include a two-course meal plus interval ice-cream served by usherettes… And of course, the film itself! Guests will be treated to some Great British comfort food that will be in keeping with the theme of the film. Think traditionally made lasagne served in front of The Italian Job from the comfort of your sofa!

With help from Marlow locals: Mark James of Unicorn Productions, Chris Hughes of Brand Events and Ben Phillips of Steamer Trading, The Pop Up Picture House is on a mission to bring back the community spirit that movie houses used to give to the local area. There will be Saturday morning screenings and matinee movies for kids with the kind of food and snacks they love to make it an extra-special experience. For older viewers there will also be a well thought out bar, with a selection of real ales and lagers available, both on draught and by the bottle. Individual and artisan house spirits will be well sourced, as well as a wide selection of wine.

  1. Am I correct in assuming the seating in the front rows are a mixture of single and double sofas with small tables in front?

  2. We went in a big group of girls last night and had a great time – “nobody puts baby in the corner”. Love the sofas and blankets and pre-film clips of Marlow.
    I rarely write anything but good in a review – But I am surprised Tom Kerridge puts his name to the food, it was really bad. A big tomato with a bit of mozzarella and salt on top followed by a heavily salted ?curry sauce over cauliflower on boiled rice, with dry nan bread. Reminded me more of motorway services on a bad day rather than the Coach. Please please please fix this as we liked the event otherwise!
