New pop-up cinema screenings launch in secret Edinburgh location

New pop-up cinema screenings launch in secret Edinburgh location

A new cinema experience where the audience only find out the location 24 hours before the event is launching in Edinburgh.

The Secret Life of the City will take film fans to an underused spot in a bid to transform an urban space into a cinema setting.

Taking place in an indoor “post-industrial space” in the EH6 postcode on August 27, work from 14 film-makers will be on show with home-made popcorn on hand and entertainment from local musicians The Woods.

Featuring both short films and longer features, the pop-up is part of a new series called Hidden Features which was set up to give a platform to local filmmakers as well as exploring interesting spots of the city.

People can either book a seat or bring their own picnic blanket to the first event of the series which is being organised by Jenny Humberstone, curatorial director at Edinburgh-based design studio Here+Now.

“The Hidden Features series of events came from the idea that there are many interesting nooks of urban city spaces, both indoors and outdoors, which are currently underutilised or have the potential for more productive use,” Jenny said.

“Equally, there are a great many talented creative local people producing amazing artwork or short films, but which don't always have the chance to be publicly viewed or screened."

Following the first pop-up, Jenny says the next Hidden Features events will use a different city space for each event.

“We find the mystery location adds to the suspense and emphasises the fact that each event is exploring a part of the city you'd never otherwise use in this way,” she said.

“There is a great potential for the everyday, often overlooked, underutilised city spaces to be used in more creative ways at different times of day and night.”

All ticket holders will find out the location of the pop-up cinema 24 hours before the event, with the money raised going towards the Rodney Street tunnel photo exhibition.

“The August festival season is of course, a busy time for the city, with an influx of thousands of tourists and shows from all over the world," Jenny said.

“What is really nice about organising this Hidden Features event during August is that it's a great chance to also celebrate the local Edinburgh and Scotland-based talent that is here year-round, with a friendly atmosphere in a tucked-away spot away from the crowds.”

The Secret Life of the City will take place in the EH6 location between 7.30pm and 10pm on Thursday, August 27.
