The countdown has begun in our house to Luna Cinema’s open-air screening of The Greatest Showman Sing-Along at Tatton Park in Cheshire this summer. We’ve been playing the soundtrack pretty much on repeat since January and enthusiasm shows no signs of abating!
The Luna Cinema is launching the UK’s first outdoor cinema aimed specifically at families with kids of all ages – Luna Kids – at venues across the country. Over the summer holidays from 21st July through to 4th September, parents and kids can enjoy a fun cinema experience together in the fresh air and (fingers firmly crossed) the summer sunshine. Families can take their pick from nearly 100 screenings across the UK, including new blockbusters and award-winners, such as The Greatest Showman Sing-along and Early Man to classics such as Toy Storyand Harry Potter. Other highlights and family-favourites include The Lion King, Aladdin, Coco, Up, The Incredibles, Paddington 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and Despicable Me 3.
With tickets starting at £12.50 for adults and £7.50 for kids, films will be screened during the day on a giant 10 metre, high-definition screen that allows for a perfect picture even in direct sunlight. Luna Kids locations include some of the country’s most beautiful and historic sites, such as Hampton Court Palace, Hatfield House in Hertfordshire, Dulwich Park in London, Bolton Abbey in Yorkshire, Tatton Park in Cheshire, Heaton Park in Manchester and Priory Park in Surrey.
Luna Kids Cinema audiences are welcome to bring along picnics to the screenings. However, we’re told that all events will have a fantastic selection of healthy food and drink options tailored to all tastes – as well as a Big Kids Bar serving refreshments for older film fans, including wine, beer and prosecco.
