Open Air Cinema 2017


Open Air Cinema is back!

Our annual programme of Open Air Cinema will visit some of the UKs most spectacular outdoor cinema locations. This much-loved feature on Plymouth’s summer calendar visits three waterside venues: Mount Edgcumbe, Tinside Lido, and the Royal William Yard for eight events in August and September.

With a mix of blockbusters, cult classics and good old sing-alongs, the films are carefully chosen to suit their location, and dressing up is encouraged! Summer lovin’ is guaranteed as the events start at Mount Edgcumbe with the ultimate feel-good sing-along, Grease (18 Aug). Darth Vader and his storm troopers will descend on the country park the following evening with 2016’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (19 Aug).

Classic 1920s musical Singin’ In The Rain (25 Aug) will open the bank holiday weekend at Plymouth’s art deco Tinside Lido. The sharks are gathering for surfer survival movie The Shallows (26 Aug), and back by popular demand, the most feared/loved film about the terrors of swimming, Jaws (27 Aug).

The Royal William Yard events come with a pinch of nostalgia with 80s time-travel adventure Back To The Future (7 Sept), and La La Land (8 Sept) the glorious love-letter to Hollywood’s golden age. Female superhero film Wonder Woman (9 Sept) will provide a blockbuster finish.
