After transforming into a Drive-In experience in 2020, we’re delighted to announce that our Outdoor Cinema is returning for a summer season of family favourites and outdoor screening classics.
Embrace the summer you’ve earned as we welcome the weekend early with screenings on Wednesday and Thursday evenings whilst our sports and events programme continues through the weekend. Traders in the Goods Yard will be putting on their own special deals that will be available exclusively to ticket holders to help you take your cinema experience to the next level.
We’re overjoyed that this year, our programme will feature a selection of family-friendly films that will be completely free to enjoy throughout the summer holidays. Tickets will go live on our website one week before the showing.
