British Airways is bringing back ‘Silent Picturehouse’ - a unique cinematic experience in London showing five travel-inspired films on big screens in the evening, and children’s movies by day.
In an innovative twist, viewers tune in from personal headsets, replicating the in-flight experience. With Edith Bowman hosting the launch night, 'Silent Picturehouse' will take place in exclusive London venue between 22-26 July.
Films will be shown on five giant screens simultaneously. The movies include: the latest James Bond hit Skyfall on the ‘Best of BAFTA 2013’ screen; timeless thriller Jaws on the ‘Classic Summer Blockbuster’ screen; adventure drama The Beach on the ‘Travel Classics’ screen and cult classic Top Gun on the ‘Flight in Film’ screen. There will also be a ‘Fans’ Choice’ screen, showing either Casablanca, Into the Wild, Sleepless in Seattle, Slumdog Millionaire or The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
