Keith Lemon & Paddy McGuiness bring MovieFest to Tatton Park this weekend

By on August 29, 2019

BRITISH comedy duo, Keith Lemon and Paddy McGuiness are set to deliver their exciting new outdoor live cinema concept, MovieFest, this August.

The pair, in conjunction with Showcase Cinemas and The Luna Cinema, will host a series of exclusive events screening the 80s classic, Dirty Dancing this weekend (August and 30th and 31st) in Tatton Park, Cheshire.

In a celebration of 80’s cinema at its best, the duo will imagine themselves running a video shop, where they will draw on movies from the decade of shoulder pads and spandex. MovieFest launches this summer with the two kicking things off with the Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey classic musical. As part of the event, audiences will get to enjoy a traditional outdoor cinema experience from The Luna Cinema, screening the film itself on the UK’s highest definition outdoor LED screen. Each screening will involve a special twist – where we see Paddy and Keith return to the stage in a surprise finale and post-screening party.

MovieFest is in association with Showcase Cinemas, which first arrived in the UK more than 30 years ago and now has 21 Showcase and Cinema de Lux sites across the UK. As well as screening Hollywood blockbusters, the national chain is well-known for its Flashback and Event Cinema screenings.

Mark Barlow, General Manager, Showcase Cinemas UK said: “We are super excited to be working alongside Keith & Paddy as they launch their brilliant new MovieFest concept. They love films just as much as we do and we know it’s going to be a laugh out loud series of events.  We’re passionate about delivering the very best immersive cinema experiences and Dirty Dancing has so many classic lines and memorable moments that it’s the perfect choice to be brought to life in this fun-packed event.”

Paddy McGuinness said: “Keith and I literally cannot wait to take to the stage.  We are the biggest fans of classic 80’s cinema and are already looking forward to the next cinematic masterpieces we can lovingly pay tribute to!  This summer it’s all about having the Time Of Your Life at MovieFest.  Let the Dirty see the Dancing!”

Keith Lemon said:  “Really excited about MovieFest! In the past I’ve projected onto a bed sheet in me garden, but this is gonna be a next level! And with me good mate Paddy McGuinness! First film we’re hosting is Dirty Dancing. There’s gonna be food and drink, we’re gonna have music! It’s gonna be a wicked party! And party is my middle name. Well it isn’t really, it’s Ian.”
