A ticket to the immersive cinematic experience guarantees safe transport via shuttle to the spacecraft that doubles as a cinema – complete with comfy beanbags and plenty of themed food and drink.

Guests can choose an intergalactic cocktail such as the Cosmos-Politon or Stargarita and grab some space snacks at the bar before exploring the spaceship and discovering the interactive cockpit that is perfect for all your selfie and Instagram needs.

The films on offer are all suitably intergalactic in flavour, too. From recent blockbusters such as Blade Runner 2049 and Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017), to classics such like the original Blade Runner and cult classic Flight of the Navigator (1984).

What started as a passion project in the founder’s back garden is now the original permanent, themed cinema treating customers to a completely different experience every time they go.

Since moving into their new permanent home they have produced Miami Beach, The Last Chapel, The Snow Kingdom and The Lost World, alongside the sell out Winter Night Garden and Romeo & Juliet shows across London.

Tickets can be booked here and cost from £17.50 for an adult to £9.50 for under 12s. Date night packages from £74 for two, with snacks, prosecco and blankets included.
