The Varsity Hotel hosted an open-air screening of short films in the stunning setting of its rooftop bar on Sunday, 15th April 2012. It was a clear but chilly evening and, with its usual attention to detail, the hotel provided blankets and a most beautifully designed butane gas heater which attracted almost as much attention as the films!
After drinks and tasty canapes, my wife and I slipped down to the warmth of the floor below where a suite had been cleared for a showing of "Brief Encounter" which was a delight. Once again, the hotel added that extra touch of providing us with popcorn to munch as the drama unfolded.
All in all, Cambridge Film Trust's collaboration with the hotel and its spectacular location and friendly staff provided what I hope will be the first of many such evenings to come there.
