The Open Air Cinema is proud to present an open air screening of

Dunkirk (12)

In May 1940, Germany advanced into France, trapping Allied troops on the beaches of Dunkirk. Under air and ground cover from British and French forces, troops were slowly and methodically evacuated from the beach using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel that could be found. At the end of this heroic mission, 330,000 French, British, Belgian and Dutch soldiers were safely evacuated.

Director :Christopher Nolan


What happens when I arrive?

When you arrive on site it would speed things up if you have your ticket with the bar code showing. This can be on paper or better still on your smart phone. If you are using your phone download the pdf that has the bar code on it and then take a screen grab of it. Keep it in your photos and we can scan it from there. This is important as there may not be a signal at the location. We will do all we can to make sure entry is speedy as possible. If in doubt get in touch before the event.

You will then be directed towards the screen that will be easily visible. Find the most comfortable position for your group. For the best experience don't be too close to the speakers there will be music being played to help you find your ideal spot.

Can I bring a picnic?

There will be a wide range of affordable, quality food and drinks available. So there should be something for everyone. If you do bring anything please NO GLASS and please take your packaging and leftovers away with you.


There will be a 20 minute interval for you to have a comfort break and to sample some more great food and drink.

Smoking, e-cigarettes, vaping and similar?

Everyone should have a choice to smoke or not to smoke, so there will be a designated location for those who wish to use cigarettes, e-cigarettes or vaporisers. Please do not be offended if we invite you to use a dedicated location. Any questions about this feel free to ask a member of our event staff.

Why the different ticket prices?

We want to offer a good experience at a great price and encourage visitors to purchase tickets in advance. This ensures we have a better idea of numbers attending and allows us let those who didn't get tickets to not set off on a fruitless journey and thus avoid disappointment. In the end it allows us to run a safer and more enjoyable evening.

What if it rains?

You will receive an email on the day of the event if The Open Air Cinema have to cancel the event due potential heavy rain or high winds that could make it dangerous for the event to go ahead. Your booking fee will be retained buy Billetto. However by rebooking for the rescheduled event (we will email you a code) then there will be no additional booking fee to pay..
