Outdoor cinemas return to Ashfield

Posted onPosted on 18th Aug
Ashfield District Council is bringing Hollywood back to Ashfield with four free outdoor cinema screenings in September.

The events follow the success of the first outdoor cinemas in 2019. This year the screenings will take place across the first two weekends in September in Kirkby, Hucknall, Selston and Sutton. Each location will be showing two blockbuster films as voted for by residents; a family friendly film from 2.30pm and an evening showing from 6.30pm.

The cinema events are on:
Saturday 4th September – Kirkby Plaza, showing Trolls: World Tour and Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!
Sunday 5th September – Titchfield Park, Hucknall, showing Raya & The Last Dragon and Rocketman
Saturday 11th September – Selston Country Park showing Tom & Jerry: The Movie and Grease
Sunday 12th September – Sutton Lawn, showing The Lion King and Bohemian Rhapsody

Coun Jason Zadrozny, leader of the council, said: “The outdoor cinema screening events will be a real celebration for Ashfield, a chance for us all to come together and enjoy time with friends and family. We know how much residents loved the outdoor cinema events when we first introduced them in 2019, and if it wasn’t for the pandemic, we would have held them again last year.

“These screenings will be better than ever with two film options to suit everyone’s tastes. We have invested over £2million into our parks and green spaces over the past two years so these events are the perfect chance to show them off.”

Coun Arnie Hankin, ward councillor for Selston, added: “We are so pleased that Selston Country Park is able to host an outdoor cinema screen this year, as we have big plans to improve the park and café. We are holding a public consultation event at the Selston screening and we would love residents to give their opinions on the plans for Selston Country Park, before or after they enjoy the films”.
