The tastiest way to experience a classic film is back at Electric Cinema this summer, showing 90's black comedy Grosse Point Blank with a witty, murderous menu.
There aren't many things that can improve the experience of watching a 90's John Cusack film (most definitely his prime years) on the big screen, but Edible Cinema have taken it to a whole new level with their food-and-film latest event.
On the 26th and 27th of July only, Electric Cinema will be hosting the next Edible Cinema event - a screening of Grosse Point Blank, accompanied by a bespoke box of secret treats and Bombay Sapphire cocktails to be enjoyed at particular moments throughout the film. These are not your usual cinema snacks though - the dream team behind Edible Cinema (which include Soho House chef Jake Rigby Wilson and Bombay Sapphire mixologist Sean Ware) have come up with an imaginative and witty menu which corresponds to certain moments, transforming the sensory experience of the film.
While we can't give away too much about the menu, we can say that if you've ever wondered what an assassin might taste like, or perhaps a whiskey-soaked grave, this is your chance. Check out their website
to see what wonders they've come up with for previous films - including 'flesh' sausages for Perfume and 'lighter fluid' for Withnail and I.
With Electric Cinema as the venue, the traditional popcorn-encrusted seat is also given a comfortable makeover, with armchairs and beds on offer for your viewing pleasure. After this, you'll never be able to have popcorn at the Odeon again.
Tickets from £35pp, on sale from Monday 30 June.
