Adventure Cinema at Stanley Park at Stanley Park Blackpool, Blackpool 22 — 24 September 2023 Tickets from £15.50 — Book now

Watch the stars under the stars at Blackpool’s Stanley Park this September. Adventure Cinema are bringing their outdoor screen to the famous seaside town with a weekend of movies screening outdoors from Friday 22 – Sunday 24 September.

The films start with Baz Luhrman’s dazzling 2022 musical biopic Elvis on the Friday night. That’s followed by Saturday’s event, the film that launched Julia Roberts and reignited Richard Gere’s career, the perennial favourite and ‘90s box office smash, Pretty Woman. Things wrap up on the Sunday evening with Tom Cruise in last year’s bombastic, acclaimed Top Gun: Maverick.

Make sure to bring a chair (unless you’re upgrading to a luxury deckchair) and come prepped for the weather – screenings will go ahead rain or shine. There’s also the promise of hot and cold snacks and an on-site bar to entice you to get there ahead of time.
