Pop up cinema comes to Chesterfield
New company Bluebird North Events is bringing pop up cinema to Chesterfield and North Derbyshire. It will be launching with a screening of Kung Fu Panda at St Thomas’ Centre in Brampton on Saturday 23rd March 2019.
The company was set up by Chesterfield residents Brogan O’Callaghan and Adam Chapman after finding a lack of similar events in the area. Plans for future events include films such as Moana, Little Shop of Horrors, Mean Girls, Hairspray, The Polar Express and The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Brogan stated: “We want to create events for local residents and believe this is something new and exciting for Chesterfield. We love Chesterfield as a town and want to show off what it is has to offer and to bring some additional evening entertainment to the area.”
She added: “Our events are pop up screenings but with added extras to make it a real day out. Cinema is such a great way to have a shared experience as a group, as you all laugh, cry and experience the emotions of the film together. This sense of community is what we’re trying to capture at our events, and we hope that the attendees will feel the same way.”
At the Kung Fu Panda event there will be a bar with a range of drinks for adults and children, as well as face painting and food stalls where you can buy popcorn, nachos, brownies and more. The event opens at 5pm, with the film starting at 7pm. Tickets are £8 for adults, £6.50 for children and £25 for a family ticket.
Adam Chapman said: “Our Kung Fu Panda screening is an evening of family entertainment in a popular Chesterfield location. Our first event is aimed at families, however we have a range of events being planned for the young, old and young at heart. Most of our events will be cinema screenings however we do want to expand into other areas such as live comedy and popular TV events.”
“The next screening we are planning is a special 50th anniversary screening of Kes. Tickets will be on sale in the next couple of weeks, watch this space!”
