Head down to Soho this Bank Holiday Sunday and Monday and you can watch some pretty interesting things. Phones 4u, along with a stack of Sony Xperia Z2 handsets, will be showing films like Anchorman 2, Gravity and Frozen on the handsets with some clever noise-cancelling headphones.
They’re calling the event a “silent cinema” experience, which will let you watch these big movies without hearing people eating popcorn or crisps right next to you. During the event you’ll still be able to enjoy the snacks, but you won’t hear anyone munching them. Give and Phones 4u will be offering beer and soft drinks without you even having to get up out of your seat.
There’s no worries about screen times (as all films will be streamed to the Z2 handsets via the Sony Video Unlimited service) and you even get entered into a draw to win a Z2 Tablet.
The free event is available at the Soho Hotel between 2PM and 6PM this coming Sunday and Monday.

PHONES 4u LAUNCHES UK’S FIRST
SILENT SMARTPHONE CINEMA
Pop-up silent cinema experience with the Xperia Z2 from Sony lands in London to banish all those cinema annoyances – this May Bank Holiday weekend ONLY
Forget the days of bad cinema etiquette ruining your viewing experience, as Phones 4u comes to the rescue of frustrated cinema goers with a brand new pop-up silent smartphone screening experience. The FREE service, set to open its doors to the public over May Bank Holiday weekend – Sunday 25th and Monday 26th May 2014 – at London’s exclusive Soho Hotel, will give movie buffs the perfect environment to watch the latest blockbusters on the latest 4G smartphone, the Xperia Z2 from Sony, without any interference from those pesky popcorn eaters, noisy sweet rapper rustlers and deafening drink slurpers.
Over the course of the weekend, movie fans can individually pick from the latest and greatest films of all time – including blockbusters Gravity, Frozen, The Hunger Games Catching Fire, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and The Hobbit – and watch them on the Xperia Z2 from Sony’s amazing 5.2” Full high definition screen. Built using the latest Sony TV technologies and supported by legendary sound, this unique experience is thanks to the handset’s in-ear headphones with digital noise cancelling technology, which blocks out an astonishing 98% of all ambient sounds from the world around you, for a completely uninterrupted cinema experience.
An expert team of cinema hosts will be on hand to bring you all the free cinema treats you could need – from popcorn and soft drinks to pick ‘n’ mix and even the odd glass of bubbly or beer. There’ll even be a dedicated text line so you can request a free refill of your favourite cinema snack, without ever having to leave your seat.
The service ensures that couples, friends and families alike no longer need to argue about which film to see or be dictated by screening times, as the vast array of films will be available on-demand via Sony’s Video Unlimited service, without the annoyance of having to sit through loads of adverts before the film begins.
Everyone who attends over the Bank Holiday weekend will also be in with a chance to win an Xperia Z2 from Sony, and a brand new Xperia™ Z2 Tablet.
If you’re looking for the perfect FREE activity to do this Bank Holiday weekend, visit the Phones 4u Silent Smartphone Cinema between 14:00-18:00 on Sunday 25 and Monday 26 May 2014 at The Soho Hotel London (nearest tube stops – Tottenham Court Rd and Leicester Square).
