A Weekend of Anniversaries – Town Hall Pop-up Cinema

Saffron Screen is heading to Saffron Walden Town Hall for a weekend of Anniversary pop-up cinema!

Join us for a special weekend of movie anniversaries as we bring Saffron Screen to the Saffron Walden Town Hall for a celebration of some our favourite cult classics and kids screenings.

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (20th Anniversary)

Friday 7th June – Doors: 7:00pm | Start: 8:00pm

Scotchy Scotch at the ready, Anchorman is turning 20 and we’re celebrating!

Ron Burgundy is San Diego’s top-rated newsman in the male dominated broadcasting of the 1970’s, but that’s all about to change when a new female employee with ambition to burn arrives in his office.

Don your best suits, groom your moustaches and emphasise what a big deal you are by quoting as many lines as loudly as you can.

LOUD NOISES encouraged.

Ticket options include a glass of Scotchy Scotch, Beer, Wine or soft drink and a meat or vegetarian/vegan burrito. But please don’t hurl it at anybody.

Tickets: £23 w/ Alcoholic Drink + Burrito, £21 w/ Soft Drink + Burrito, £15 Entry Only.

The Iron Giant (25th Anniversary)

Saturday 8th June

Doors: 1:30pm | Start 2:00pm

Celebrating its 25th Anniversary, we’re screening The Iron Giant, a classic animated film from 1999.

Something huge is on the horizon. Hogarth Hughes just rescued an enormous robot that fell from the stars to Earth. Now young Hogarth has one very big friend and an even bigger problem: How do you keep at 50-foot-tall, steel-eating (junkyard cars are especially tasty) giant a secret? It’s even harder when a nosy government agent arrives in town to hunt down the ‘alien invader’ and the combined land, sea and air might of the US military is sent to demolish the giant. The result: an incredible adventure that’s part metal, part magic, all heart.

Tickets: £7 Entry Only or £8 with Hot Drink/Simply Fruit

Four Weddings And A Funeral (30th Anniversary)

Saturday 8th June

Doors: 7:00pm | Start: 8:00pm

Join us for a screening of this classic 90’s Romcom celebrating its 30th Anniversary.

Loveable Englishman Charles (Hugh Grant) and his group of friends seem to be unlucky in love.

When Charles meets a beautiful American named Carrie (Andie MacDowell) at a wedding, he thinks his luck may have changed. But, after one magical night, Carrie returns to the States, ending what might have been.

As Charles and Carrie’s paths continue to cross – over a handful of nuptials and one funeral – he comes to believe they are meant to be together, even if their timing always seems to be off.

This one is an excuse to dress up for the part, wedding dresses and suits encouraged.

Ticket includes a glass of Prosecco (or Beer, Wine, or Soft Drink) and a slice of cake.

Tickets: £19 w/ Alcoholic Drink + Cake, £17 w/ Soft Drink + Cake, £14 Entry Only

Stuart Little (25th Anniversary)

Sunday 9th June

Doors: 1:30pm | Start: 2:00pm

When the Littles go to an orphanage to adopt a new family member, a charming young mouse named Stuart is chosen.

While George is initially unwelcoming to his new brother, the family cat, Snowbell, is even less enthusiastic about having a mouse as his “master” and plots to get rid of him.

Against these difficulties, Stuart resolves to face them with as much pluck, love and courage as he can muster. In doing so, he shows his beloved new family that great things can truly come in small packages.

Tickets: £7 Entry Only or £8 with Hot Drink/Simply Fruit

Breaking Away (45th Anniversary)

Shown as part of Community Bike Ride Day

Doors: 4:30pm | Start: 5:00pm

This charming, Academy Award winner (1979, Screenplay) cycles high on comedy as four friends come to terms with life after high school.

When top-notch cyclist Dave (Dennis Christopher) learns that the world’s bicycling champions are always Italian, he attempts to turn himself into an Italian, driving his parents (Barbara Barrie, Paul Dooley) crazy.

But everything changes after he meets the Italian racing team-an encounter that ultimately leads him and his friends (Dennis Quaid, Daniel Stern, Jackie Earle Haley) to challenge the local college boys in the town’s annual bike race.

Tickets: £7 Entry Only or £8 with Hot Drink/Simply Fruit
