For those who love TV and film (and there is a fair few of us) businesses have finally caught up with our obsessions. Maybe they have realised the only way to get us out of the house and coax us off Netflix is to create activities and themes of our favourite shows.
And if that is the case, then smart move, because this piece will discuss just some of the activities you can enjoy to bring you closer to the fictional characters and places you have come to know and love.
Eat at the Oscar Bar and Restaurant – Charlotte Street, London
Kicking off this journey is the Oscar Bar and Restaurant, which is the perfect place for film and TV fanatics alike to go and get a slap-up meal, feeling the star of the show themselves. The décor is luxurious, there are plenty of ever-changing cocktails to choose from, and after dinner, you can watch a house appointed film in their state-of-the-art screening room. Pretty fabulous.
Enjoy a Backyard Cinema Experience – Wandsworth, London
For those who like their films alfresco and next level socially distanced, this unique outdoor screening might just be the magical experience you are looking for. There are some amazing setups to choose from, with Winter Night Garden or The Snow Kingdom being currently on offer. Both interactive themes offer screenings of recent hits and cult classics which promise to transport viewers into an entirely different world (which sounds pretty good right about now).
Find a screening that piques your interest or make your own, watch what you like, and get ready to snuggle up.
Take a Tour Based on Your Favourite TV Show, Ireland
For shows that have touched the hearts and minds of viewers so deeply, it only makes sense to open up the world to those who want to immerse themselves. But “How?!” you cry! By a tour! A tour can take you on a journey through where the magic happened and allow you to re-experience your favourite shows in a new light.
Epic shows like Game of Thrones are set in far-off worlds that we couldn’t imagine being anywhere on Earth; however, those stunning scenes are closer to home than you could ever imagine. One flight to Ireland and you can be walking through Winterfell or taking a tour around parts of King’s Landing and soaking up the ambience by imagining your favourite scenes which were shot there.
Visit a Film and TV Museum, Bradford
There are some fantastic film and TV museums situated all around the globe which allows the enthusiastic about digging deep behind the scenes and observing some fascinating history. The National Media Museum covers both film and TV, and also has photography displays too – so for those who love all media, this is certainly a treat to visit. There is said to be over 3.5 million objects related to film, and the museum is also home to its very own Cinerama installation (the only permanent one in Europe!), Pictureville Cinema.
