Inside The Golden Sheaf’s sold out Lost In Translation screening

As part of their ongoing Spring Days. Sapphire Nights Bombay Sapphire takeover, last night The Golden Sheaf held a one-off screening of Sofia Coppola’s 2003 classic Lost In Translation.

Screening the film in their upstairs bar – for now reimagined as the delightful Canvas Cinema – there were drinks, good times, and you guessed it, plenty of blue.

Last night The Golden Sheaf opened its doors to film fans with a screening of Lost In Translation, complete with G&Ts, Japanese decorations, and a sold out crowd.

The venue leaned into the Tokyo theme, stocking the bar with special ‘Saketini’ cocktails and decorating the area with Japanese blossom-printed umbrellas. The night was sold out, so there was a easygoing buzz through the air as the crowd warmed themselves up pre-film.

It was nice to see a different side of The Golden Sheaf’s upstairs space, usually reserved as a more conventional bar or function area. To say it fit the cinema format snugly would be an understatement.

The film itself was obviously a treat, one of the all-time greats. And no, we still don’t know what Bill Murray said.

If you’re keen to check out the Canvas Cinema for yourself, they have upcoming screenings of Almost Famous on October 24th and Bill Cunningham: New York on October 31st. Grab all the details here.
