Bedlington to host open air cinema
Bedlington is set to host its own FREE-to-attend open air cinema this month at Attlee Park, as part of Leading Link's celebrations for The Big Event 4.
'The Big Outdoor Cinema', set to take place on the evening of Saturday June 20th, will see the former Northumberland Miner's Picnic venue transformed into an open air cinema for one night only courtesy of Skylight Cinema.
The giant 8m x 4m inflatable screen will show the feel good musical classic Grease, with build-up to the film from 8pm.
Jonny Hall, Assistant Manager of Leading Link, said: "We are always looking for new and exciting ways to make The Big Event something to remember for the local community - and continue to establish it as of one of Northumberland's biggest family fun days."
"We have been playing around with the novelty of an outdoor cinema for a long time and thanks to funding from West Bedlington Town Council and R.W. Mann Trust, we are now able to make this idea a reality for the community of Bedlington on June 20th."
The event is free to attend and people are encouraged to get dressed up, bring picnics, blankets and pop-up chairs and arrive in good time for an evening packed full of family entertainment, including a chance to learn some of the film's classic dance moves before the film begins.
Jonny added: "Grease is just one of those classics - everyone young and old has either seen the film, sang along to the soundtrack or danced around their living rooms pretending to be Sandy Denny or Danny Zuko."
"We want all members of the community to come along and help us create a real feel-good family atmosphere, dance like nobody is watching and enjoy a summer evening of fun down in Attlee Park."
The car park will be REOPENED to the public after The Big Event 4 on a first come, first served basis, and alcohol is not permitted at the event.
Let everyone know that you will be at the Big Outdoor Cinema at the Facebook page.
