We are thrilled to announce that after a decade of sold out shows, Backyard Cinema’s critically acclaimed Romeo+Juliet is returning to its much loved and iconic home, Union Chapel, Islington. We've cranked up the excitement. This year, we're adding brand-new tracks from the famous movie soundtrack, reimagined like you've never heard before.
Join us again as we celebrate Baz Luhrmann’s acclaimed 1996 cult classic, screened under the stained glass windows and amongst candle-lit aisles of one of London's most iconic and atmospheric venues, accompanied by a live choir performing versions of the classic movie soundtrack, including Young Hearts, Everybody's Free, Kissing You, You and Me Song, Local God and Doves Cry.
