A pop-up cinema experience will be coming to London next month to mark the 15th anniversary of the iconic film Love and Basketball.
Amacoast Cinema, a new experiential cinema company that create pop-up events exclusively around black film, are launching with an immersive event in Bethnal Green, East London, to celebrate the film starring Omar Epps and Sanaa Lathan.
“I’m a huge black film fan but I’ve seen very few in the cinema and I was pretty sure I wasn’t the only one,” Dele Aro, co-founder of Amacoast Cinema said.
“So I thought it would be great to not only provide a communal cinematic experience for black film, but turn the screenings into an immersive celebration allowing the audience to create new memories.”
“Love and Basketball is 15”, taking place on the 16th October 2015, at the legendary York Hall venue in Bethnal Green, East London.
Amacoast Cinema will be working with experiential events company We Are Parable to create an experience for the audience that is more than just watching a film. A basketball themed event evening will take place, with live cheerleader performances, dunk competition and basic basketball skills sessions with players from the London Lions.
In addition, there will be a live DJ, competitions & giveaways, as well as food vendors.
