Summer is back on track as The Luna Cinema's 12th consecutive open-air film season is set to return in a brand new socially spacious way! After a somewhat turbulent few months for cinema, when it appeared only drive in screens might see the light of day this year, film fans across the country (and those without cars) can now look forward to summer evenings in gorgeous settings, enjoying great films on giant screens under the stars.
Each Luna screening will take place in the fresh air, with social distanced pitches allowing the audience to keep safely apart at all times. Tickets for all Luna open air screenings this summer will offer a designated pitch per booking group, each with directors' chairs laid out in advance for each person, ensuring guests have space to kick back and enjoy the setting safely. Seating will be sanitised between each screening, and bookers can choose whether to book a two-person or four-person pitch, though all members of each party must be from no more than two households. Larger groups from more households can sit in adjacent pitches. Each Luna event will offer socially distanced queuing for toilets and ample hand sanitising facilities for all guests, allowing attendees to safely relax and enjoy the ultimate cinema experience under the stars. As always, The Luna Cinema audiences are also welcome to bring along picnics to screenings.
Film-lovers across the country can choose from scores of outdoor screenings in some of the UK’s most prestigious and historically important venues. Venues featuring in the season include Leeds Castle, Blenheim Palace, Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, Castle Howard, Waddesdon Manor, Hampton Court Palace, Bolton Abbey, and Lincoln Castle, to name a few. Also, for the first time ever, the Luna big screen will be taking up a summer residency at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, on the stunning South Grounds, adjacent to the Thames. Full details at the link.
