Something a bit different for you today – pop-up cinema company Friendly Neighbourhood Cinema are offering a day of audio-only screenings for the visually impaired. More below…

Here’s a novel idea and a half – and a really great cause, too. Stourbridge-based pop-up cinema company Friendly Neighbourhood Cinema have scheduled an afternoon of sound-based cinema this weekend.

Taking place from 3pm on Sunday 1 October at Mary Stevens Park, the schedule was put together by the RNIB and Beacon Vision in collaboration with FNC, and includes a guided meditation, music, narrative and poetic soundscapes and a main feature of Jeff Wayne’s War Of The Worlds.

Check out the full schedule, courtesy of Friendly Neighbourhood Cinema, below, and if you find yourself in Stourbridge over the weekend, why not pop down for a different kind of pop-up experience!



3pm – Audiotorium: Invisible Cinema

You gotta’ hear this! Grab yourself a pair of multi-channel headphones, a comfy spot and explore 3 channels of MUSIC, NARRATIVE & POETRY/ART. Sensational soundtracks, spectacular scores, Pictures You Can Hear: Cinematic Sound Mixes and more audio delights such as artistic poetry soundscape Hope Central

Free admission as per availability with an optional donation. But with all the lax enforcement of an art gallery. 


4pm, 5pm, 6pm – Sound Healing: Guided Meditation Practice

A guided meditation practice hosted by Fitness & Wellbeing practitioner Charley Elson. An introduction to Sound Healing, utilising binaural beats and the meditative effect of sound frequencies. 

Scheduled hourly over on the Poetry/ Art channel as part of the Invisible Cinema.

Free admission where spaces are available, RSVP at


7pm Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of The War of the Worlds 

Our finale feature at the Invisible Cinema! Celebrate the 45th anniversary of maybe the greatest concept albums of all time. Playing under the stars in it’s entirety, under the envious eyes of a full moon. Beginning at sunset, we hope for a good forecast – but consider this an autumn event and wrap up warm! One not to miss.
