‘Snow’man should miss Notting Hill Narnia-themed pop-up cinematic Christmas cracker

It may not be a white Christmas this year, but a pop-up cinema company is creating its own winter wonderland in Notting Hill.

For the third year running, Pop Up Screens is taking over the Grade II-listed 20th Century Theatre in Westbourne Grove for two weeks from December 12.

Armed with popcorn and mulled wine, guests enter the cinema through a magical wardrobe into their very own snow-filled Narnia.

Owner Dave Leydon, 32, said: “It’s wonderful seeing the disbelief on people’s faces as you ask them to walk through a wardrobe to enter the cinema and then watch as a burley bloke instantly reverts to a nine-year-old and starts throwing snow at his friends.

“I say it a lot, but Christmas is genuinely the most special thing we do.”

Festive films on the bill include Love Actually, Miracle on 34th Street and Bad Santa.

Having enjoyed a successful summer of pop-up screenings in Ravescourt Park in Hammersmith and Bishops Park in Fulham, Mr Leydon highly recommends booking early.

There are up to three screenings daily with tickets priced at £10 for children and £20 for adults.
