London has always been a good place for a bit of star-spotting, with many of the world’s biggest A-list celebs either living or hanging out in the city. Of course, if you don’t manage to track any down then there’s always the option of heading to the world-famous Madame Tussauds, where you’ll find waxwork models that are so lifelike, it’s just like hanging out with the real thing.
Anyone planning a trip to the popular London attraction in the coming days, however, could be in for an extra special treat, as Madame Tussauds is set to become a temporary cinema, giving visitors the chance to watch films while having their photos taken with the actors that appear on screen.
The event is being organised by the same people that created the phenomenally popular Rooftop Cinema Club and Drive-In Cinema, and is sure to offer a fantastic atmosphere.
Two movies will be shown per night on September 4th and 5th, with visitors being given the chance to spend a little time browsing through the Film and A-List Parties area of Madame Tussauds beforehand. A temporary bar will be set up, and there will be food on sale too, so it’s clear to see that this is shaping up to be a truly stellar event.
September 4th will see a screening of Baz Luhrmann’s visually stunning adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, starring Leonardo Dicaprio and Claire Danes, with the film set to start at 7.15pm. This will be followed by the classic 1961 movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s – a film which helped catapult Audrey Hepburn to global stardom – at 9.30pm.
The following night, visitors will be able to enjoy screenings of Pretty Woman and Top Gun.
Madame Tussauds is located on Marylebone Road, and is immediately next to Baker Street station. It’s also within easy reach of a number of top Luxury London hotels, restaurants and other attractions.
