Film with a sunset: Hunstanton open-air cinema returns this year

By Lynn News Reporter

Following the successful event last year, Hunstanton will host two more outdoor cinema screenings this summer.

On Saturday, July 27 at 9pm, a screening of Oscar-winning movie Bohemian Rhapsody will take place on the Green.

Before the film starts there will be a screening of a short black and white film from Hunstanton Heritage Centre with footage from a railway journey from Lynn to Hunstanton.

Then on Saturday, August 17 at 8.30pm, the big screen returns with a showing of the original Mamma Mia film.

Prior to this screening, a short film called ‘A Plastic Ocean’ will be shown.

Councillor Elizabeth Nockolds, deputy leader of the borough council and cabinet member for Culture, Heritage and Health, said: “Our open-air cinema screening was incredibly popular last year and we’re excited about its return.

“Two great films are being shown this year, both featuring classic songs that I’m sure the audience will want to join in with.

“Make sure you get to the Green nice and early to grab a place to sit to these free screenings”.

These events are part of the borough council’s Hunstanton Heritage Gardens programme, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund to improve facilities and activities in the town's gardens.

Bohemian Rhapsody is a 12 rated film, while Mamma Mia is a PG.
