Garden Shed Cinema

There isn’t  anything more charming to me  than people who march to the beat of their own drums.  Don Parr has loved movies and theater since he his first job as a projectionist at the age of 16 and now, at the age of 81, he operates a garden based, 14 seat, 40’s style theater — in his own backyard.

Don Parr’s Garden shed cinema keeps him from having to pay for theater trips but it is also frequented by a local stream of movie goers. The British pensioner spent £10,000 to convert his 18′ x 9′ shed into a fully-outfitted movie theater complete with genuine salvaged cinema seats and a 6′ 6″ x 3′ 3″ screen.

While I think it would be better if those trellis actually had something pretty growing on them…I still think it is a pretty sweet idea.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    I’m worried that if my husband sees this he might get ideas for his own retirement.
