The Star & Mouse Picture Show is a trinket-cinema stowed away in rural Cambridge. It began after a series of parties held in our garden which would finish with us screening projected films onto an old bed sheet outside. The beauty of what we do is that it’s portable; we can be in a vineyard one day and a swimming pool the next. We have only one rule and that’s to create a unique and unforgettable evening for people who want their night to shine.
What to expect
- Pre-Film Entertainment there’ll be merriment before your film begins from giant jenga to live music, come early for a giggle, please note that films start upon nightfall and not before.
- Fire Pits wise though to bring a blanket to snuggle under, it gets cold after dark
- Food & Drink lots of delicious food available; from snacks to something more robust. Our bar too will have a fine selection of wet things for you to try – please don’t bring your own
- Dress Code we love you all, dress as you will. From sparkles and ruffles to wellies and flat-caps all of course are welcome
- Seats just bring your bums to sit on, we’ve got you all seats!
- Weather should the rain gate-crash our party, we brave it anyway. Rain ponchos will be provided at the door but please dress accordingly
Please arrive with your tickets on you as we need to allocate a pair of our wireless headphones to your ears for the movie.
‘Highly entertaining event - lots and lots of laughs. Clear a space in your calendar and make sure you have an evening with these guys. Check it out!’
‘Brilliant, fun and unusual. Look forward to next time’
‘Booked tickets for my birthday and absolutely loved it. Thought we were just going to see Moulin Rouge, but we got so much more. Fun, fun, fun!’
‘I’ve started working with Ella doing events when I was 15. When I met her I didn’t have much confidence, but I made really good friends with the crew and found I was good at something. Because of the experience I got, I was able to start moving forward, I got a job working as Media Manager for a company called Cambridge Live and last year I worked at Secret Garden Party in the event control office. I’m really excited with what’s next to come.’
‘We went to the Polka Dots and Feathers Ball they did last year; it was amazing. They put on a screening of a film in one room, and had circus performers and a crazy DJ in another. We all dressed up to go there and danced all night long. Loved the pizza from The River Kitchen bar they had there too.’
