Open Air Cinema 2021
Sign up to our mailing list and follow us on Facebook for the latest updates!
Open Air Cinema is back! Summer is finally here and we want to enjoy the warm evenings, new freedoms and, most of all, celebrate cinema with you all again. We have a weekend of museum treats at Tavistock Place outside The Box and two wonderful weekends at Plymouth’s beautiful Tinside Lido. We will be screening Hollywood Classics, cult favourites, screen treasures new and old. There will be archive films and short films, films from the South West and further afield, there really is something for everyone.
Your safety is our priority so we have reduced the capacity of all of our outdoor venues so everyone has a little more space. #lovecinema
The Open Air Cinema programme is also a great opportunity to raise funds in support of Plymouth Arts Cinema’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.
