Storyhouse’s Moonlight Flicks returns this summer with the largest and longest open-air season of cinema to date.
The extended 2021 programme of big screen entertainment opens on the late May Bank Holiday weekend and will take place at three venues across the region.
Open-air cinema is back in the stunning setting of Chester Cathedral’s Dean’s Field for a second year, as well as at Claremont Farm in Wirral where there was a sell-out season of screenings last October.
And this year there is a new addition to the summer season with Snugburys Ice Cream at Park Farm near Nantwich joining the Moonlight Flicks film family. It will host cinematic favourites on Saturday evenings from 3 July to 28 August.
Almost 70 separate screenings are taking place between May and September with more dates and titles set to be added in coming weeks. Films start as the sun sets.
Moonlight Flicks opens on Saturday, 29 May with Dean’s Field the venue for a special 25th anniversary screening of Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet and Claremont Farm hosting Wonder Woman 1984.
Other big screen treats planned over the summer months include family, cult, comedy and blockbuster film favourites.
Along with Romeo & Juliet, there will also be anniversary showings of Bridget Jones’s Diary and Trainspotting.
Films for all the family include The Lion King, The Greatest Showman, The Secret Garden, Jurassic Park and Guardians of the Galaxy.
Musical favourites Grease and Mamma Mia are also among the line-up, while there are a host of irresistible 80s classics including Dirty Dancing, Back to the Future, The Princess Bride and Karate Kid.
The films are shown on Storyhouse’s giant 30ft Airscreen, and each location will have refreshments on offer including delicious pre-ordered pizzas available at Dean’s Field.
