We sought out Newhaven Fort as one of our venues, and were extremely excited by the idea of hosting a weekend of immersive cinema here with a military theme.
We will screening the films in Sussex’s historic fort, which can seat 900 people on the Parade Ground. We plan to screen one military themed film each evening – Saving Private Ryan, The Great Escape and War Horse.
Our guests will be able to tour the fort prior to the film, including inspecting the bunkers and visiting the museum, all adding to the immersive experience. However, it will not just be the location that makes this immersive; Pathé newsreels will be playing and catering will be based on 1940’s cuisine. Guests will be greeted by staff dressed in period costumes.
We want to make sure the event pays the proper due respect to members of the Armed Forces and plan to give 10% of our profits to the Royal British Legion, who we have co-hosting the weekend with.
