WHERE IS THE CINEMA LOCATED?

WHAT IS MERCATO METROPOLITANO?
Mercato Metropolitano is a 45,000 square foot market space offering
a mixture of Italian and London based artisan producers, including “the best pizza maker”
from Naples. Sustainability and social relationships are close to their heart, and their
approach draws on the basic principles of ‘small is beautiful and natural is good’.
WHAT ARE THE CLOSEST PUBLIC TRANSPORT LINKS?
It’s a 5 minute walk from either Borough or Elephant & Castle station.

There will be a Backyard Cinema Box office at the entrance, you need to exchange your online or mobile ticket there for your
Backyard Cinema ticket and (if purchased) your food and drink vouchers. The tokens can be exchanged at the bar inside the cinema.
NB: WE ARE UNABLE TO SWAP THESE ITEMS FOR OTHER PRODUCTS AT THE BAR
CAN I BRING MY KIDS WITH ME?
Sure, we love kids. You will need to check the rating of the film and they will require a ticket.
Obviously, they won’t be allowed to drink alcohol and our bar staff will be checking ID all night.
We love seeing kids watching old classics like The Goonies, or Back to the Future for the first time.
IS THERE DISABLED ACCESS?
We are pleased to say that yes there is disabled access.
It may also be easier if you are to get in touch with us before the show via e-mail,
and we can get some aisle seats reserved for you and staff can be on hand to help should you need it.
We’d also like to take this opportunity to tell you that the use of strobe and flashing lights
will be present throughout the opening sequence of the experience. Please notify us in advance
if you would like to discuss this, or further understand how this will be used during the screening.
CAN I BRING MY OWN FOOD AND DRINK?
Afraid not, although you will be delighted to know we have a range of traditional cinema snacks
as well as a fully licensed bar selling beer, wine, cocktails and softs.
There is also a fantastic Italian street food market right outside the entrance, so you won’t need to bring a thing!
DOES THE BAR STAY OPEN? I GET THIRSTY…
I feel ya buddy, the bar will stay open throughout the performance.
CAN I COME BEFORE THE FILM BEGINS?
Hell yeah you can! The bar will be flowing, street food sizzling and music blasting.
There is so much going on in Mercato Metropolitano too, it’s well worth a wander so get down early.
I WILL NEED TO GET HOME AT SOME POINT, WHEN WILL IT ALL BE FINISHED BY?
The longest films we have on show will be finishing no later than 11pm, most of them much earlier.
Please check the run time of your film if you are concerned about getting a particular train home.
IS THERE A DRESS CODE?
As much as we would love to see you all in black tie, we have no enforced dress code.
CAN I SMOKE?
There is an allocated smoking area outside of the cinema in Mercato Metropolitano.
If you want to smoke you can pop outside, just keep hold of your ticket and you can freely come in and out as you please.
CAN I GET A REFUND?
I am afraid we do not offer refunds or exchanges on ticket purchases.
You are able to give your ticket to a friend to attend if you can no longer make it.
