What time do doors open?

Are there bean bags at this event?


Nope! Romeo+Juliet is a stand alone show by Backyard Cinema and is not held at our home venue. Please do not confuse our general website with this event. Union Chapel is a working Church (a beautiful one at that) so the seating for this event is traditional Church pews. Seating is not allocated, so we would always recommend arriving early, particularly if you are attending with a larger group size.


Are there any matinee performances of Romeo+Juliet?


There are no matinee performances of Romeo+Juliet. All shows are scheduled to start at 8pm on the dates listed.
