Shout About London

Jul 30, 2018

George Wood went from acting with SClub8, via a broken leg, to launching the longest running open air cinema in London.

Luna Cinema screen movies at a who’s who of iconic London landscapes, including Kensington Palace, Holland Park, Hampton Court Palace and even the Moat at the Tower of London.

More recently they’ve partnered with Comedy Central to produce ‘Friends Fest’; part immersive experience, part fan convention, and part exhibition; dedicated to one of the most loved shows in TV history.

Hear how a waxed chest, a broken leg, Orlando Bloom and a blagged phone call, took George from life in front of the camera, to behind the scenes producing his own acclaimed experiences.
