Summer Screens Open Air Cinema has announced that they will be returning to open air venues this summer, including Coventry Cathedral.
The event was unfortunately cancelled last year due to the pandemic, but is set to go-ahead as planned this summer.
All across the country, the company will be hosting open air cinema screenings of hit films such as Top Gun (1986); The Greatest Showman (2017); and the brand new Broadway adaptation of In The Heights (2021).
Philip Cottle, Summer Screens founder, said: “Our team is so excited to be able to bring this brilliant film to Summer Screens. This is the first time a major new release will be shown outdoors, and Summer Screens is thrilled to be the ones doing it.”
The film is centred around the likeable bodega owner, Usanvi, who saves every penny from his daily grind in the pursuit of a better life for himself and those he loves.
“In the Heights” fuses Lin-Manuel Miranda’s kinetic music and lyrics, with director Jon M. Chu’s lively and authentic eye for storytelling.
“Our audiences have been crying out for something new and this uplifting musical treat is exactly what everyone needs. The summer will literally be bursting from the screen,” added Mr Cottle.
The film will be screening at Coventry Cathedral on August 12 and 13 this year, with guests able to choose between allocated picnic pitches, double deckchairs or private gazebos.
A fully stocked bar is available at each venue with a great selection of craft beer, cocktails, gourmet popcorn and hot food. However, guests are welcome to bring their own picnic and drinks as well.
Tickets for the event went on sale on Friday, June 4. Prices are £10.50 for children, £15 for adults and £45 for a family of 4. There are no additional booking fees or charges.
