Cunard has teamed up with the BFI, the UK’s lead organisation for film, TV, and the moving image, for an exclusive new partnership that will make waves with film lovers ahead of Queen Anne’s launch! The three-year partnership will see a curated programme of specially selected films exclusively on the outdoor screen in The Pavilion aboard Queen Anne.

Introducing: The Pavilion

The Pavilion is an idyllic open-air oasis on Queen Anne’s top deck. As a multi-purpose space, it boasts a specially designed glass dome roof that retracts in warmer climes. Inspired by beautiful glasshouses, it is the ideal spot for getting lost in a book or enjoying a dip in the pool by day and for meeting new friends over a glass of wine.

Guests can enjoy ever changing entertainment that lasts late into the evening. A choice of al fresco bars and eateries. Bubbling hot tubs and a picture-perfect blue pool. The space has been designed by David Collins Studio, with its sophisticated aesthetic likened to a ship sailing through serene waters as guests breeze from one moment to the next.

About Cunard’s BFI partnership

The BFI will be showing 10 films every month on the cinematic LED screen in The Pavilion, and these specially selected films will also be shown in guests’ staterooms.

In addition to the collaboration with The Pavilion, Cunard will be a main sponsor of the 67th BFI London Film Festival, in partnership with American Express, which runs at venues across London, as well as in nine UK-wide partner cinemas, from 4 – 15 October, as well as in 2024 and 2025.

Katie McAlister, President of Cunard, said:

We are absolutely thrilled to be partnering with the British Film Institute, with our shared dedication to providing immersive experiences aligning perfectly. We’re hugely proud of our long-standing affiliation with the silver screen, with some of Hollywood’s biggest names having sailed in style with Cunard – from Charlie Chaplin to Meryl Streep. As the first cruise line to host an on board film premiere with the launch of The Greatest Showman on Queen Mary 2 in 2017, we are incredibly passionate about the power of timeless storytelling. We have dedicated spaces for film enthusiasts across the fleet, and our new ship Queen Anne will boast even more big screen experiences for guests. Together with the BFI, we’ll strive to create unparalleled and unforgettable moments for film lovers.
