After last year's successful outdoor showing of Batman Begins, The Nomad Cinema returns to Bushy Park this summer with two screenings of classic 80s films - The Labyrinth and E.T.

The Labyrinth finds its way to Bushy Park

Brought to cinemas in 1986, The Labyrinth features David Bowie in an Alice In Wonderland-style fantasy created by Jim Henson (The Muppets). The film - Henson's last before he died - took a while to achieve cult status having flopped at the box office when it was first launched.

But with Trevor Jones’ magical score, the surreal touches introduced to the script by Monty Python’s Terry Jones, and Bowie’s Goblin King Jareth, it has slow-burned its way into the popular consciousness and has remained a cult classic to this day.

The film wil be screened on Friday 22 August at The Pheasantry Woodland Gardens, Bushy Park, at 8.30pm. Book your tickets here.

The Nomad Cinema comes home to Bushy Park with E.T.

And later on in the summer, E.T. will touch down in the beautiful grounds of Bushy Park. Arguably one of Steven Spielberg’s best-loved movies, the film is famously based on an imaginary friend Spielberg invented during his parents’ messy divorce. The film, featuring child star Drew Barrymore in her breakthrough role as Gertie, was initially knocked back by Columbia Pictures, who described it as “a wimpy Disney movie”, only to be picked up by MCA.

The film will be screened on Saturday 30 August at The Pheasantry Woodland Gardens in Bushy Park at 8.15pm. Book your tickets here.
