Spirited Away London Screenings with Accompanying Food (Updated)
posted on by Andrew Osmond
Update - The Aubin cinema has informed ANN that both Spirited Away screenings are booked out.
According to the website:
The audience receives a series of numbered food packages to consume at specific points during the film along with a Bombay Sapphire cocktail inspired by the film. The smell, texture, even the way your mouth feels after eating the contents of the packages, will correspond to what's happening onscreen and heighten your sensory experience. Imagine eating foaming tapioca 'soap' powder as Sen bathes a filthy river spirit at the bathhouse onscreen. Or when bathhouse worker Lin eats a roasted newt, you're also eating the strangest sweet-savoury crunchy treat you've ever tasted.
The site does not indicate if the screenings are subtitled or dubbed. Tickets are £20 each, and should be booked by emailing [email protected] . The screening is a collaboration between Soho House, event organiser Polly Betton and experimental food designer Andrew Stellitano.
