Just when we thought London’s cinema offerings couldn’t get any wackier, ZSL London Zoo announced that they are repeating last year’s Silent Cinema experiences this May.
In 2013, the Regent’s Park institution screened then newly-released film Life Of Pi to celebrate the opening of new exhibit, Tiger Territory. This year, there is a move towards more classic films, rather than new releases.
Unsurprisingly, there is a distinct animal theme to the films on offer, and each screening includes a visit to one of one of the zoo’s exhibits before the film begins. Visit Penguin Beach before settling down to watch March Of The Penguins, or face up to the snakes and gorillas before watching Jumanji. Other films on offer are Jurassic Park, Jungle Book, and Raiders Of The Lost Ark. What, no Tarzan?
To prevent the animal residents being disturbed unnecessarily, sound will be transmitted through wireless headphones, provided on arrival. Bring a picnic blanket and make yourself comfortable, or upgrade your ticket to include a deckchair when you arrive on the night. The screening takes place outside, so be prepared for the great British weather.
