This month marks the arrival of Dine in Cinema, a new dining experience from London's Bao, located at its Borough Market restaurant.
Created in collaboration with Mubi, the curated film streaming service, Dine in Cinema presents Nightmare on Film Street, a season of horror films launching on Thursday 29 October and running until Tuesday 29 December.
This first series of Dine in Cinema is available to book for groups of four to six people. Priced at £20, tickets include a choice of six horror films curated by Bao and Mubi, whose platform offers an ever-changing collection of hand-picked films from new directors to award-winners.
Titles range from cult Japanese horror classics such as Nobuhiko Ôbayashi’s House, a ghoulishly absurd and completely off-the-wall horror, to Zombi Child, a gorgeous and sublime pulp mystery with an ace synth score, directed by Bertrand Bonello.
All screenings will be accompanied by Bao’s Cinema Set Menu, which includes:
Crispy Fish Skins
Fried Cheese Skewer
Taiwanese Fried Chicken Popcorn
Curry Hot Dog BAO
Sweet Potato Fried Chips
Horlicks Ice Cream Tub
Admission will also include free access to Mubi for the following 30 days. Films in the Nightmare on Film Street series feature the following acclaimed titles:
