There’s watching a movie at the cinema and there’s watching a movie at home….then there’s watching a movie in an idyllic setting on West Kirby promenade with unrivalled views over the estuary, dinner and fine wine! Last month we brought you gypsy jazz and tapas at Tanskey’s bistro bar in West Kirby — an event that sold out in 3 days — and now we bring you their unique ‘Movie Nights’! As Autumn begins and nights get darker earlier, it’s time to get cosy at the picturesque West Kirby venue and their movie nights offer a different kind of experience in the seaside town.
There are 7 of these fantastic evenings from September to December and tickets for each one are limited. For £25 each guest receives a main meal from the ever changing menu (chicken, beef or veggie options), a bottle of red, white or rose wine (upgrade to prosecco for £5), free popcorn, a movie showing on the state of the art HD surround sound projector and exclusive use of the best located venue in West Kirby. Tickets are available by calling 0151 625 3882 or by messaging their Facebook page. The first 2 nights have screened The Greatest Showman and The Post and in this feature we bring you the next 5 events:
