For two weeks only, Bang & Olufsen is inviting Londoners to lose themselves in an evening of cinematic indulgence at Smallbone’s Luxury Pavilion, nestled in the heart of Knightsbridge.
The new pop-up unites film and food in collaboration with celebrated two Michelin-starred chef and restaurateur, Tom Sellers, giving visitors the chance to see and hear classic films like never before – accompanied by theatre-themed bites with a fine dining twist.
The pop-up picture-house comes as part of Bang & Olufsen’s exclusive ambassadorial relationship with Tom, who’s meticulously constructed menu comprises a selection of delectable delights designed to feed the soul.
Guests will be able to purchase tickets to a film screening of their choice. Following welcome drinks within the Smallbone showroom, visitors will be invited to take their seats in one of four artfully decorated booths, decked out with Bang & Olufsen’s latest home cinema launch, Beosound Theatre. From there, they will be served signature small plates by Tom as they immerse themselves in the film, creating a feast for all the senses.
A sculptural piece of audio art, Beosound Theatre’s immersive sound and Scandi design will make for a magical movie experience that’s only heightened by Tom’s playful, rule-breaking approach to dining.
Meanwhile, Smallbone’s captivating multi-sensory retail space is the perfect setting for an evening to remember, says Bang & Olufsen. Echoing its spirit of innovation, Smallbone has redefined the concept of contemporary living with its intelligent approach to design and time-honoured artisanal craftsmanship, creating spaces for living, relaxing, entertaining, and dreaming.
“Crafting memories is at the core of what we do at Bang & Olufsen, so we’re thrilled to be offering this once-in-a-lifetime cinematic event in the heart of London. By partnering with Tom Sellers – a name at the forefront of culinary innovation – we’re blending the very best of film and fine dining experiences to create a movie night like no other”, says David Morris, Head of Marketing and PR at Bang & Olufsen.
“I have always had a love of film; it has both inspired me and acted as a form of escapism from everyday life. I’m excited to be working with Bang & Olufsen to create an experience that meshes film, sound, and food”, says Tom.
Running from 5-9 and 12-16 April 2023, there are just 20 tickets available to purchase via Eventbrite for each night.
