"Elisa (Sally Hawkins) lives a literal quiet life. She does not speak. She cleans at a scientific facility, where she is expected to do her work and question nothing. When she sees that an aquatic, humanoid creature is being violently studied in the facility, Eliza resolves to save him, then begins to fall in love with him."

The ultimate adult Oscar winning fairy tale from legendary director Guillermo del Toro . It couldn't get more enchanting with this up on the big screen, under the stars this summer.

Enchanted Cinema is back for its 4th year of inner city cinematic magic. They return this year to one of their favourite venues, The Gonville Hotel’s hidden garden, in the centre of our beautiful city.

These guys are all about creating an original and vibrant cinema scene that offers an exciting way to watch a great film. Expect to be wowed by a short film before each screening, magical light installations and live music from local artists. Velvet curtains will be pulled back at the time of the allocated screening, and the arena will open to Enchanted Cinema ticket holders. These events are set to be the most magical of the summer.

The hotel’s kitchen will be serving up a unique menu for Enchanted Cinema ticket holders and there will be an out-door bar and popcorn kiosk along with live music from local musicians until the screening which will begin at sunset for each film.

Seating is not allocated so be sure to arrive in advance to choose your deckchair. We are a rain or shine event so if the Great British weather surprises us and the skies open, we will have waterproof ponchos available and the show will go on!

Sit back in a deckchair, fresh popcorn and a drink in hand, and experience cinema as you never have before this summer…

“Definitely an enchanting evening. As the sun sets the lovely lighting around the seating brightens and some local Cambridge acoustic sets a beautiful evening up for a joyous night. Drink in one hand and some popcorn on my lap, reclined in a deckchair… my sort of movie night.” - Samuel Benjamin Harris, Artist

Every detail is thought of, the magical lights to the homemade brownies! Love the emphasis on everything being so ‘Cambridge’, the local street food, local musicians. Everything was so fabulous, can’t wait to bring my friends again this summer.” - Londiwe Ncube, Stylist

“Each event they did here in the garden of The Gonville Hotel last summer was fully booked and that has to be put down to the unique experience they create for each show.” - Christopher Ogston, Manager of The Gonville Hotel

“With a great selection of features, passionate support of local creatives and an abundance of popcorn, this team of friendly film lovers guarantee their audience a unique experience: enjoying the stars on and above the silver screen as the summer sun sets. To simply say it’s enchanting is a cop-out, but a genuine one nonetheless.” - Jonathan Howard, JHFilm
