Pop-Up "Silent Cinema" Comes to Television Centre This Summer

This summer White City developers Stanhope are hosting a pop-up "silent cinema" on the roof of the old car park on Wood Lane. Silent Cinema will run for six weeks, run by Electric Cinema (of Notting Hill and Shoreditch fame), and will be managed by Incipio Events.

But don't worry, "silent cinema" doesn't mean there is no sound; it just means there is no noise to disturb the neighbours.  Audience members will be provided with noise cancelling headphones to ensure there is no disturbance to local residents.

Silent Cinema will open to the public Wednesday to Sunday for six weeks between 22 June and 1 August 2016; on Mondays and Tuesdays there will be private viewings only.  Films will end no later than 11.30pm.

What's this all about?
Silent Cinema is intended to complement "Pergola on the Roof", a food event which is due to run from 25 May until 29 August from Wednesdays to Sundays.

When is Silent Cinema happening?
Silent Cinema will open to the public Wednesday to Sunday for six weeks between 22 June and 1 August 2016.

How many people can go?
The silent cinema will have a maximum capacity of 82 people at any time.

Will Silent Cinema disturb the nieghbours?
Apparently not. Together with Incipio Events and Electric Cinema, developers Stanhope are "committed to minimising any potential disturbance for our neighbours". The pop-up silent cinema will be located on the northern part of the car park, "furthest away from residents on Macfarlane Road".

The silent cinema, like Pergola on the Roof will be "limited to the top floor of the car park, with access only possible from Wood Lane".

What about security?
An experienced security team will be "present throughout and no parking is being provided for the public".
