AN open-air cinema is returning to Lydiard Park next month.

Screenings start at the West Swindon venue with Rocketman on July 6, followed by The Greatest Showman and Grease on July 7 and 8 respectively.

The Luna Cinema is the company behind the experience, which visits 50 locations across the country until October 3.

Founder George Wood said: “There could hardly be a more anticipated summer than this 2021 post-lockdown season; every outing we arrange is set to feel special and unique after so long away from the people and activities we love. Cinema has provided the magic of escape through the decades, and we know that The Luna Cinema can bring joy and respite to the lives of movie-goers across the country this summer, more than ever before.” 

“After so many months spent watching films at home, we are delighted to be inviting the people of Wiltshire to return to the big screen, with our brand of socially spacious, open-air cinema experiences including Lydiard House.” 

“So picture this – your favourite film; the people you’ve missed or just missed spending quality time with a starry summer sky above, and all around you the most inspiring and beautiful settings. 

"We are promising our guests an outing worthy of the wait – and we are counting down the days to welcoming Britain back to the movies.”
