The Nomad Cinema, one of the highlights of the outdoor film circuit in 2015, have announced #ScreenShare, a cool way to bring a friend along to a film screening for free.
This summer, The Nomad is offering ticket-holders for its Queen’s Park and Fulham Palace screenings of Labyrinth, The Princess Bride, Little Miss Sunshine, Withnail & I, The Graduate, The Grand Budapest Hotel and Gravity the opportunity to share their pop-up film experience with whomever they feel most deserves it.
To bring along a friend for free, Nomad followers just need to have a good reason as to why their nominee deserves to be the recipient of the complimentary ticket – be they overworked, overwhelmed, underpaid or an unsung hero in need of a treat. The most compelling stories will then be selected and the lucky recipients notified.
Nomad followers are encouraged to submit the reasons for their nominations in an online entry form and via social media using the hashtag #ScreenShare to share their experience with others in their communities. These touching stories will be shared on screen and live tweeted at the events to celebrate the generosity of The Nomad’s pop-up community.
Entries can be submitted here – plus stories can be shared tagging @thenomadcinema with the hashtag #ScreenShare
Romeo & Juliet, Superman, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Birdman, Whiplash, The Lost Boys, Rear Window, Grease and Gravity are just some of the other cinematic highlights of the season at Nomad.
The Nomad donates 100% of its profits to pioneering charity The Sustainability Institute in South Africa – an eco-village and research centre, working towards providing ways of living with a focus on reducing and eradicating poverty. The Sustainability Institute has built schools and created a wide range of educational projects and development programmes enabling the disadvantaged children of the local community to have a much better start in life. In particular, The Nomad and sister cinema The Lexi have funded a film school where students have excelled and gone on to earn their place at international universities.
