Hollywood returns to Attingham

Pack a picnic and some popcorn and settle down in front of a giant 12-foot inflatable screen at Attingham Park for two nights of open-air cinema this summer.
This year’s Summer Nights Film Festival is presented by QUAD, Derby’s centre for art and film. On Friday 31 August, Dirty Dancing (12a) will be on the big screen. Drama, music and romance are the order of the day for ‘Baby’ as she spends summer in a holiday camp and falls in love with dance instructor Johnny. The evening finishes with a musical fireworks display.

On Saturday 1 September, Dunkirk (12a), Christopher Nolan’s Oscar-winning epic, is set during one of the key moments of WWII. Starring Cillian Murphy of Peaky Blinders and thespian ‘royalty’ Kenneth Branagh, this film demands to be seen on the big screen.
Attingham’s Rebekah Ingham says, “This is the third year we’ve been part of the Summer Night’s Film Festival, and it’s fast becoming a favourite with our visitors!”

Tickets are on sale now (£10.50-£19.50); doors open at 7pm with films starting at 8pm – bring a blanket or low-backed chair. Call 01332 290606 or visit summernightsfilm.co.uk for full details.
