Movies on the Meadows
Special outdoor screenings of UP, TWILIGHT: ECLIPSE and METROPOLIS on Cambridge’s Grantchester Meadows
August Bank Holiday Weekend – Friday 27th, Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th August
Gates will open at 6.00, with the films starting around dusk – roughly 8.30.
Join the Cambridge Film Festival in celebrating its 30th birthday with special outdoor screenings of classic movies, modern masterpieces and guilty pleasures under the stars in Grantchester Meadows, an idyllic location which is just a short walk, bike ride or punt from Cambridge city centre.
A highlight of Cambridge’s summer calendar, these August Bank Holiday screenings will see the Cambridge Film Festival transform a picturesque corner of Grantchester Meadows into the perfect open-air cinema. We’ll be setting up our massive inflatable cinema screen on the banks of the River Cam in Spring Lane Field, which is just behind the famous Orchard Tea Garden.
And there’s more than just films – come along early, bring a picnic or treat yourself to some of the tasty refreshments that will be available on-site from award-winning local suppliers, and enjoy the great riverside setting in time to see the inflatable cinema screen rise majestically from the river bank before the projectors roll… Gates will open at 6.00, with the films starting around dusk – roughly 8.30. So bring your blanket, pack a picnic (and a brolly, just in case!) and stretch out under the stars to enjoy these cinematic treats…
These special screenings are part of the Screen Team project, a Cambridge Film Trust initiative which has been funded by Legacy Trust UK, an independent charity set up to help build a lasting cultural and sporting legacy from the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
