A AF­TER the sell-out suc­cess of Tom Ker­ridge’s Pop-Up Pic­ture House, a new project is be­ing launched which will bring au­di­ences a whole new ex­pe­ri­ence of food and films in unique lo­ca­tions.

Rick Stein’s Sun­set Cin­ema, the first event fol­low­ing the launch of the Pop-Up Pic­ture Com­pany, will de­but in Buck­ing­hamshire’s his­toric Clive­den House on June 21.

Guests will set­tle down in the fa­mous Spa Gar­den as they watch films such as Scan­dal, La La Land and The Usual Sus­pects with Rick Stein’s topqual­ity food.

Rick Stein, who is renowned for his restau­rants in Pad­stow and Fal­mouth, will be cook­ing up sig­na­ture seafood dishes, veg­e­tar­ian op­tions and sea­sonal dishes – such as lamb curry.

“I’ve al­ways loved go­ing to the cin­ema, but some­times I just love mak­ing my­self some­thing de­li­cious to eat, putting on a great movie and set­tling down for the evening,” the star chef said.

“The Pop-Up Pic­ture Com­pany is a per­fect com­bi­na­tion of all these el­e­ments – that great cin­ema at­mos­phere, with din­ner served to the com­fort of your sofa and the added bonus of sim­ply stun­ning lo­ca­tions. “I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to the sum­mer,” he added. Rick Stein's cin­ema will be run­ning in June and July but will move from Taplow’s Clive­den to Hamp­shire’s Chew­ton Glen Ho­tel on July 9, on the edge of the New For­est. The gas­tro­nomic film nights fol­low the win­ter suc­cess of the movie screen­ings in Mar­low, where Miche­lin-starred Tom Ker­ridge served two cour­ses to eager au­di­ences. Tom, one of the four friends who came up with the ini­tial con­cept, said he was de­lighted the culi­nary movie ex­pe­ri­ences are con­tin­u­ing nearby. He said: “We were blown away by the de­mand for the event in Mar­low and we now want to share this with peo­ple in more unique and di­verse venues.

“Rick is one of my all­time food he­roes and to have him on board for the sum­mer launch is phe­nom­e­nal – what a great way to make a spe­cial oc­ca­sion out of a trip to the cin­ema.”

The clas­sic films will be screened each evening and both venues will pro­vide an idyl­lic back­drop for a unique, al fresco sum­mer evening of food and film to be shared with fam­ily and friends.
