PLANS to screen film favourites at unique lo­ca­tions across Bucks have proved so pop­u­lar ex­tra dates have been added.

Or­gan­is­ers of The Chilterns Vin­tage Cinema have been so over­whelmed by sup­port for the pro­ject, which in­cludes a screen­ing of hor­ror film The Ex­or­cist at the Hell-Fire Caves, they have re­leased fur­ther dates for some of the films and even at­tracted the at­ten­tion of the BBC.

The broad­caster has said it will be film­ing at two of the open­ing nights.

Due to the phe­nom­e­nal de­mand, The Goonies will now also be shown on March 23 at the Hell-Fire Caves and an ad­di­tional date for Four Wed­dings and a Fu­neral has been added for April 12 at The Kings Chapel.

“This is amaz­ing ex­po­sure for both The Chilterns Vin­tage Cinema and the Chilterns them­selves,” says co-founder Dar­ren Hen­der­son, af­ter hear­ing the BBC will film at the Kings Chapel, Old Amer­sham, and at Wycombe’s Hell-Fire Caves on March 20.

His wife and co-founder Deb­o­rah Hen­der­son added: “We’ve been over­whelmed by the me­dia and pub­lic sup­port, while ticket sales have been strong.

“How­ever, there are plenty of tick­ets left for screen­ings.”

On March 16, the pair are launch­ing the cinema and will show mod­ern clas­sics and lat­est re­leases in un­usual places across the re­gion, such as Bat­man and The Shin­ing in the Wycombe caves.

With real in-house bats, dark un­der­ground tun­nels and tales of haunted caves, the screen­ings at the lo­ca­tion are guar­an­teed to freak out any cus­tomer across the five nights.

The screen­ing of Padding­ton, at Bucks Rail­way Cen­tre, will have au­di­ences wel­comed by the bear and of­fered a mar­malade sand­wich, be­fore watch­ing the film be­tween two vin­tage trains.

Four Wed­dings and a Fu­neral will be shown at Kings Chapel in Amer­sham – one of the lo­ca­tions where it was filmed – and Night at the Mu­seum at the Nat­u­ral His­tory Mu­seum, in Tring.

Af­ter the suc­cess­ful start to the pop-up cinema pro­ject, lo­cal part­ners have been an­nounced as Camp­fire Gin, in Tring, Oliphant & Pomeroy, in Twyford, The Frost Part­ner­ship, in The Chilterns, and Jacs, of Amer­sham.

See page 29 for your chance to win tick­ets to see Four Wed­dings And A Fu­neral on the open­ing night of The Chilterns Vin­tage Cinema, as well as a night’s B&B for two at The Crown Ho­tel in Amer­sham.
