#100years Tour: Enchanted Cinema is a magical outdoor cinema event at enchanting and inspiring pop-up spaces including piers, gardens, local museums, national parks and bandstands, with a replica of Max’s Boat from the Where the Wild Things 1973 animation creating a centre-stage musical mothership.
Pop-up performances prior to the main show are uniquely programmed for each venue (see shows/ tickets for details)
Our rich programme features a century of European animation and avant-garde cinema with live scores composed and played by professional folk, world and cinema performers. As we wait for the sun to set, we invite audiences on a gloaming voyage through the environs to catch pop-up performances by our world-class performers inspired by the setting and the 100 years theme. In the main programme, audiences are invited to participate in creating sound FX and narrating the Wild Things animation.
