The best outdoor cinema UK events this summer

Outdoor cinema UK events. Oh, there must be hundreds of them this summer!

A quick search online will reveal a gargantuan variety of screenings, festivals and fairs featuring outdoor movies out there. So when it comes to booking, it can be really tricky to select just one.

That’s why the team at Urban Entertainment has pulled together our top three recommendations for the best outdoor cinema UK events coming up in the next few weeks.

Now you can sit back, relax and book knowing an incredible experience is definitely on the cards…


We don’t talk about Bruno…

If you’ve seen enchanting Disney film Encanto, the chances are this song is stuck in your head already. On a loop.
Sing it out loud, proud and enjoy all the magic of Mirabel’s story on a giant 40ft screen at  the next Screen on the Green event on August 20.
It takes place at East Beach Green in Littlehampton, West Sussex. What is even more special is that it is a completely free, non ticketed event for everyone to enjoy.
There will be a range of caterers on site from 7pm providing plenty of goodies for everyone to snap up and the film is to begin at 8.30pm.
This is the eighth event from Screen on the Green, organised by Littlehampton Town Council, and it is one of our absolute favourites to recommend to outdoor cinema lovers.


Here we go again

No outdoor cinema UK season would be complete without the classic singalong hit that is Mamma Mia – The Movie.
Yes, drag those platform shoes out of the wardrobe and prepare to spend a night reliving Swedish pop sensation ABBA’s biggest hits.
Sneaky Cinema is bringing this incredible event to Saltaire in West Yorkshire on September 10. Doors open at 6.30pm.
Expect a disco DJ spinning all the finest tunes before the film, plus fancy dress and glitter stations just in case. Local traders will provide a selection of ‘proper street food’ and there is a full bar to boot.
What’s even more impressive about Sneaky Cinema is they offer a range of packages, including VIP tickets with deckchairs, Prosecco and popcorn. In the words of ABBA, Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!

The Greatest Showman

And finally…

Roll up, roll up!
For a truly immersive outdoor cinema UK events experience, head over to Haigh Woodland Park in Wigan on August 27.
Not only will the organisers be showing that singalong favourite and Oscar winner, The Greatest Showman, but there will also be all the thrills of the circus ring on show.
The audience can be wowed by clowns, a stilt walker, a fairground and even fire shows. Dancing, singing to the movie’s hits such as This Is Me, games and giveaways are also on the cards.
This is a family friendly occasion with barbecues and street food aplenty to feast on from 6pm. Then watch Zac Effron and Michelle Williams shine on the big screen.
