The Extraordinary Travelling Film Show is run by the Chief Magician, David Coultas. He bases his time magically between Bembridge, IoW, and south London.

Since last summer’s screenings on the island, there have been further events in a range of Extraordinary locations, from Planet Ice in Ryde (showing FROZEN, of course) to Christmas and Valentine’s screenings at the top of the Shard, making it Europe’s Highest Cinema.

Recently, there has been a residency at the Brunel Museum, in partnership with one of London’s best pop-up bars, where classic horror films where shown in an underground tunnel – with cocktails.
