This summer heralds the launch of the Pop-Up Picture Company – creators of unique food and film experiences, all set in stunning locations – with chef Rick Stein headlining its first installment of movie nights.


Rick Stein’s Sunset Cinema is a gastronomic film night, which will ‘pop up’ at Chewton Glen Hotel in Hampshire from  July  9. On the edge of the New Forest, Chewton Glen was built in the 18th century with more than 139 acres of stunning parkland, woodland and gardens and only a stone’s throw from the beautiful Solent coast.


In the grounds of Chewton Glen, guests can expect a suitably summery menu of seafood dishes curated by Rick Stein. The menu will have the finest seafood and produce, sourced from Rick’s trusted suppliers and the local area, where possible, to include diverse tasty menus featuring lamb, a vegetarian option and plenty of Rick’s signature seafood dishes.


Rick said: “I’ve always loved going to the cinema, but sometimes I just love making myself something delicious to eat, putting on a great movie and settling down for the evening. The Pop-Up Picture Company is a perfect combination of all these elements – that great cinema atmosphere, with dinner served to the comfort of your sofa and the added bonus of simply stunning locations. I’m really looking forward to the summer.”


With a different classic film to be screened each evening, both venues will provide an idyllic backdrop for a unique, al fresco summer evening of fun, food and film, to be shared in comfort with family and friends.


Tom Kerridge, one of the four friends who initially came up with the Pop-Up Picture House concept, is delighted the culinary movie experiences are continuing. To celebrate his ongoing involvement in the project, Tom’s famous ice cream will be served ‘usherette style’ at each screening, carrying on the tradition from the Pop-Up Picture House.


He explains: “We were absolutely blown away by the demand for the event in Marlow and now want to share this with people in more unique and diverse venues. Rick is one of my all-time food heroes and to have him on board for the summer launch is phenomenal. What a great way to make a special occasion out of a trip to the cinema.”
