The Grosvenor Film Festival 2015

For the second year running, Mayfair’s Grosvenor Film Festival dares to go al fresco in partnership with pop-up movie masters Nomad and property specialists Chestertons. So grab your pac a mac, and a camping chair high enough to annoy everyone behind you, and prepare to experience some celluloid classics just as nature intended…


For their first screening, Nomad have bravely plucked an avant-garde Bulgarian animation from 1958. Not really, it’s The Sound of Music: yes, the von Trapps and their favourite things are etched into your heart, your soul, your very DNA – but have you sung The Hills are Alive in a living outdoor setting before? You will now. Costumes cut from your living room curtains are optional, as is, most likely, a drop of golden sun…


And if that isn’t enough to have you digging out your thermal undercrackers, Nomad are following Maria with Mikey-boy in that red white and blue summation of swinging post-1966 Brit-pride, and quote-along Bible for the modern mockney geezer, The Italian Job – accept no pointlessly remade substitutes. All together now, We are the Self-Preservation Society…
