The Luna CinemaWatching a movie during the summertime can sometimes be a damn right confusing experience. After all, if the weather is nice and hot and sunny outside, why would you want to be cooped up inside watching a film? Even if the film you're watching is a good film, a damn good film! But then again, if you're doing that, then that would mean you haven't heard about the UK's leading producer of open-air film screenings, The Luna Cinema, who are happy to announce their new summer calendar, packed with more screenings than ever before.

The Luna Cinema at Ticketmaster

From April to October, 2018, film fans across the country can choose from over 175 outdoor screenings taking place all across the land. Venues include some of the most prestigious and historically important sites in the UK, ranging from Royal Palaces, such as Hampton Court and Kensington Palace, to Castles and Manor Houses, such as Warwick Castle, Chatsworth House, Westminster Abbey, the Royal Botanical Gardens, and Leeds Castle, to name but a few.

Some of the new venues joining the Luna this year include York Minster, Guildford Cathedral, Belvoir Castle, Royal Windsor Racecourse, Danson House, Bolton Abbey, Osterley House, and Peckham Rye in London. As for some of the new films they'll be showing, audiences will be treated to a fantastic selection that includes this year’s big award winners: The Shape of Water, directed by Guillermo del Toro; Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, directed by Martin McDonagh; and Dunkirk, directed by Christopher Nolan.

Film fans will also have the opportunity to watch Darkest Hour, starring Gary Oldman, in his Oscar-winning performance as Sir Winston Churchill in the very grounds of Churchill’s birthplace, Blenheim Palace. Yet for those of you who are looking to exercise their vocal chords at a somewhat iconic venue, there will be a screening of the musical phenomenon, The Greatest Showman, starring Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, and Rebecca Ferguson, at Knebworth House: A venue famously known for its rock concerts.

Other movies also added to this years schedule include a number of popular classics that audiences enjoy year after year after year, such as Dirty Dancing, Casablanca, Mean Girls, Pretty Woman, The Goonies, Harry Potter, and lets not forget those of you who are brave enough to enjoy Jaws while sitting in a dinghy at Brockwell Lido.

George Wood, the founder of The Luna Cinema, said: “We are really excited to be celebrating our 10th anniversary this year as it looks like it's going to be our biggest season to date. With a little luck, we should be having warmer and lighter summer evenings where our audiences can look forward to enjoying a classic film on the big screen against a jaw-dropping backdrop. This year’s new releases are also perhaps the strongest of any of the past ten years and we’re all excited to see films such as The Greatest Showman, Dunkirk, Shape of Water, and Darkest Hour on a big screen under the stars.”

The Luna Cinema
As always, The Luna Cinema audiences are welcome to bring along picnics to each of their screenings. However, all events will have fantastic hot food for sale and a full bar on site (in partnership with headline bar sponsors, Estrella Damm). Premium tickets are available at all screenings, which include a branded director’s chair in a prime position in the arena, fast-track access, and a complimentary drink at the Luna Bar.
