Summer's here and the time is right, for watching films in the streets
Following an early blast of unseasonably good weather this year, they're already getting excited for the summer and that can only mean one thing... The Luna Cinema's open air film season is just around the corner! Cementing its place as the country’s number one producer of open-air screenings, and after a packed calendar of indoor Winter screenings, The Luna Cinema returns with the UK's largest ever season of cinema under the stars, packed with more screenings than ever before, from new award-winning blockbusters to cult classics.
From May to September, film-lovers up and down the country can pick from over 175 outdoor screenings in some of the UK's most prestigious and historically important sites. Luna audiences get to enjoy films set to the backdrop of the stunning grounds of places such as Warwick Castle, Kensington Palace, Chatsworth House, the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, Hampton Court Palace, Leeds Castle, Westminster Abbey and Cardiff Castle. New sites for 2019 include the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, Thorpe Park in Surrey, Wrest Park in Bedfordshire, Anglesey Abbey near Cambridge, Marble Hill in London and Castle Howard in Yorkshire to name a few.
Cinema-lovers will be thrilled by a fantastic choice of films this summer season, with a selection of the year's biggest hitters and award winners, including the iconic performance from Lady Gaga in A Star Is Born, and the multi-award-winning Bohemian Rhapsody, featuring an Oscar winning performance from Rami Malek. Drama fans can have a royal time watching The Favourite at the actual location for the film, Hatfield House, and with a number of hit musical extravaganzas, musical lovers will be sure to be belting out the hits from Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, The Greatest Showman, and Mary Poppins Returns.
As well as these fantastic box office hits, The Luna Cinema will also be screening cinematic throwbacks that'll have you entertained all night long, from Some Like It Hot at Westminster Abbey, and Grease at Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire, to Pretty Woman at Wandsworth Park and Moulin Rouge! at both Kenwood House and Chiswick House in London.
