This August our open-air cinema will be returning by popular demand! Join us on the beautiful lawns of Quex Gardens for a movie night under the stars on our giant 220″ screen.

Delicious cinema food will be available at Fifi’s food van, brought to you by Felcility’s cafe. You are free to bring your own picnic blankets or camping chairs, or why not treat your movie stars and upgrade to our VIP package, which includes a comfy deckchair and a box of delicious, sweet popcorn!

All of our movie events have fun as a priority, so dress-up and sing-a-long are always encouraged!

We aim to make our events as accessible as possible. All screenings will be subtitled, wheelchair-friendly and relaxed. If there is anything we can do to assist you with your visit, please get in touch.

Films

Friday 19th August – Bohemian rhapsody *(12)

Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound.

 

Saturday 20th August – Rocketman *(15) 

Young Reginald Dwight changes his name to Elton John and collaborates with singer-songwriter Bernie Taupin to become one of the most iconic figures in pop history. Set to his most beloved songs, it’s the epic musical story of Elton John, his breakthrough years in the 1970s and his fantastical transformation from shy piano prodigy to international superstar.

 

Sunday 21st August – The Rocky Horror Picture Show *(15)

On a wild and rain-swept late-November evening, a boringly-innocent young pair Brad Majors and Janet Weiss find themselves stranded on their way to visit an ex-tutor. Instead, the couple will inadvertently unearth the cross-dressing Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s spooky lair of inexhaustible oddities, just in time to partake in the out-of-this-world mad scientist’s proud unveiling of his most daring creation: the ultimate male and the perfect sex symbol: the flaxen-haired Rocky Horror.

 

*This event is not suitable for children under the age of 12 on the 19th August, and under the age of 15 on the 20th and 21st August.*
