Set fair for the return of the Kinema

After an unpredictable summer, the weather forecast for this Saturday’s Wanstead Kinema – the Fringe’s open-air cinema – is about as good as organizers could have hoped for.

This year’s film is Roald Dahl’s Matilda the Musical, starring Emma Thompson with lyrics by Tim Minchin. The screening is again taking place in the gardens of Christ Church – which may feel a bit different following the untimely death of the massive cedar tree which previously stood there. The church believes last year’s drought was to blame for the tree’s death.

But the Kinema will go on – and as before there will be chicken on the rotisserie, a pop-up from the Wanstead Tap, and a great family atmosphere.

Tickets are selling fast (and sold out completely last year) so don’t miss out. You can get them here.
