Plymouth Arts Cinema’s Open Air Cinema is returning for 2019, offering audiences the opportunity to enjoy their favourite films in a series of iconic city locations. Since 2012, this much-loved feature on Plymouth’s summer calendar has visited spectacular sites across the waterfront city for a programme of film events through August and September.

With a mix of blockbusters, cult classics and good old sing-alongs, the films are carefully chosen to suit their unique locations, and dressing up is encouraged!

The Open Air Cinema programme is also a great opportunity to raise funds in support of Plymouth Arts Centre’s charitable mission to bring as many people as possible to experience cinema and feel inspired, challenged and thrilled by what they encounter. There are many ways to support the charity, by making a donation, dedicating a cinema seat, setting up a sponsorship or becoming a Friend. Visit our Support Us page for more details.
