A touring outdoor cinema is coming to the city, giving people a chance to watch blockbusters under the stars.

Picturehouse’s outdoor cinema is coming to Preston Manor in Preston Drove, Brighton and will show three films this weekend – one for each night.

This is the first of four weekends of outdoor screenings in the city, and film fanatics will be able to see favourites Mamma Mia, Romeo And Juliet and Jaws.

A spokesman for Picturehouse said: “We are so excited to bring our outdoor cinema to the charm of the historic Preston Manor.

“Bring along your pillows, blankets, and picnic baskets, and enjoy a selection of great films for all.”


Friday’s screening of Mamma Mia has already sold out, but tickets are still available for Romeo And Juliet on Saturday and Sunday’s showing of Jaws.

Next weekends showings include Top Gun: Maverick and Shaun Of The Dead.

There will be six more screenings later in the summer, including a special dog friendly showing of Fantastic Mr Fox on August 18.

Doors open at 7.30pm, but films start at sundown so that the outdoor cinema can be enjoyed “at its best”.

“Arrive early to enjoy our drinks and snacks and settle in with your choice of seat,” said the Picturehouse spokesman.
