The Hill Station – La Nuit Parisienne

20 Nov

First night at the Hill Station, SE14, destination:Paris.  Here’s what the punters said:

Guys, I loved the first premiere evening of Cinema at the Hill Station, the food was fabulous, the film delightful, and the quiz very enjoyable. All in all a wonderful evening for £10. And I didn’t mind at all that we didn’t know what film it would be, it was great to have the decision made by the “experts” on cinetopia! So thank you !!   Candace

That was a really REALLY fun night.  Mercy buckets!The grub was absolutely grubulous.  What a strange and delightful film!  And what a strange and disorienting experience (in a good way) to be on a winning quiz team for the first time ever.  We’ll definitely be coming next time for some Honk Kong Fooey on the 16th if we can get in.  After word-of-mouth does its work, it’s going to be a hot hot ticket I’m sure.  Well done Team Cine for a great idea superbly pulled off.     Paul

Pumpkino – A night at the museum

So, Pumpkino is no more and the ghost of Cecil Rathbone can walk the corridors of the Cinema Museum undisturbed for another year. Thanks to all the crew and guests who made it a spectacularly spooky evening. Here’s what a couple of our ghoulish guests had to say:
“Just had to write to say what an AMAZING evening it was last night. The whole event was a triumph, – location, quiz, film, decor, attention to detail second to none.Believe me, I appreciate just how much work would have gone into making this event so special and such fun – really appreciated.”

“Thanks for such a fab evening on Friday – really loved it. We really enjoyed it and would def go to more cinetopia events”
