Press Play Outdoor Screening: Great Gatsby
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past
Press Play are back with a bang and bring to you the best modern day classics across the capital's most tasteful and exclusive venues. Expect breathtaking views, top-notch movies and a unforgettable evening. For this one, get ready for the Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby. Press Play have kitted out the venue with decor to bring the film to life and have teamed up with the incredibly creative Wandering Chef to offer mini-bottles of Moet champagne, cinema snacks. You can play your part too: the dress code is fancy dress, so why don’t you get involved? This film is great in every way. Transport yourself back to the '20s America and feast your eyes on this visually dazzling extravaganza; it is easy to see why it won two Oscars for Best Achievement in Production Design and Best Achievement in Costume Design. Adapting Scott F Fitzgerald's original novel once again for the big screen, Leonardo Di Caprio plays Jay Gatsby, a super-rich party animal who possesses a certain willingness to share the good vibes. But the good vibes begin to dwindle, and what follows is a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy that holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles. "A grandiose, colourful, pleasure-drenched night at the movies." – Slate "A wayward, lavishly theatrical celebration of the emotional and material extravagance that Fitzgerald surveyed with fascinated ambivalence." – New York Times Certificate: 12. Runtime: 2 hours 23 minutes. Doors open at 7pm, film starts at sunset (around 9pm). Last entry is 9:30pm.
