Southwold's outdoor cinema will be showcasing two films celebrating female empowerment after a study found women had suffered more with mental health throughout Covid than men.
The pop-up cinema, on Southwold Common, will be screening Bridget Jones's Diary and Emma on August 19 and 20 respectively.
Organisers decided to schedule the films after a government report found British women have reported worse mental health and wellbeing than men since April 2020.
Hannah Wright, Southwold's town development manager, said: "It appears that women have suffered far more during Covid and lockdown than men, and although they appear to have recovered quicker, there is still a divide between the genders on depression, loneliness, stress and anxiety to date.
"It's awful to read and very sad. That's why the first double bill is dedicated to women."
