This sounds really exciting – an open air cinema! I can’t wait to be a part of it and am definitely going to be booking tickets for several classics.
I think it will be amazing.
The Luna Cinema is delighted to announce the UK’s largest season of open-air cinema this summer supported by Benefit Cosmetics.
With over seventy screenings of classic films on giant screens across the country, from Royal palaces and medieval castles, to racecourses, famous London parks and even an open-air swimming pool, it promises to be an unforgettable summer of cinema under the stars. Helping to create the ultimate entertainment experience, Benefit will be on hand to provide complimentary makeovers giving guests screen-siren looks as well as hosting VIP areas alongside giveaways of some of their iconic beauty products – there will even be the chance to walk the pink carpet!
Screenings include 80’s classics such as Top Gun at Kew Gardens, Dirty Dancing at Ascot Racecourse, and Back To The Future at Greenwich Park (on the meridian line), through to classics such as Breakfast At Tiffany’s at Kensington Palace, The Birds at Opera Holland Park and a special 50th anniversary screening of Goldfinger at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre.
The line up also includes some of this year’s biggest films including The Wolf Of Wall Street at Hatfield House, Captain Phillips at Hampton Court Palace and Gravity at Kew Gardens, Greenwich Park and Warwick Castle. Those looking for something a little different can opt for a VIP experience at Brockwell Lido and watch Jaws from an inflatable dingy on the water! The public can choose which films they’d like to be shown at One New Change, St Paul’s and Brockwell Lido by casting their vote at thelunacinema.com.
Benefit Cosmetics Managing Directors, Ian Marshall & Gail Bojarski said “This summer we are excited to be teaming up with Luna Cinema and being able to give guests the best outdoor cinema screening experience yet – we’ve got a few surprises up our sleeves!
“We love the synergy between Luna and Benefit, it’s about hanging out with friends, having a giggle (even if the film itself is scary) and ultimately enjoying yourself. Plenty of iconic ‘looks’ have been inspired by cinema – think Audrey’s eyeliner flicks, or Marilyn’s pout and we all like to wonder ‘what if it was me’ in that dress, kissing Leo or driving into the sunset. Sitting on a blanket at the Luna cinema gives you a screen siren moment with Benefit adding the glamour – we are the perfect partners-in-pictures!”
As always there will be a full bar and delicious food at each screening; and you’re welcome to bring your own picnic at selected venues – check the website for details.
