Southwold's Outdoor Cinema is returning this summer with an exciting film line up celebrating some Hollywood classics along with the Best of British.
The socially distanced event is taking place on Southwold Common from May to September offering visitors and residents a range of feel-good movies for everyone to enjoy.
Southwold's Outdoor Cinema will be positioned by the town’s water tower and will offer easy access.
The season starts with two contemporary classics: Bridget Jones's Diary, on Saturday May 22 and the Suffolk-based Beatles film Yesterday on May 29.
Another seven award-winning films will run in June, August and September and each night will have a mix of entertainment and local hospitality to complement the movie and will bring a party atmosphere to the evening.
The movies will be screened on a 42ft screen and the soundtrack can be accessed via state-of-the-art noise-cancelling headphones.
Southwold residents Richard Curtis and Emma Freud have generously donated the films as part of their support of community life and local economy. All proceeds from the events will be donated to Comic Relief or reinvested back into the town to benefit the residents, visitors and local businesses.
Southwold's Outdoor Cinema is organised by My Southwold Business Partnership and supported by Southwold Town Council.
