Outdoor cinema at Sheffield Park and Garden

*THIS WEBPAGE REFERS TO SUMMER 2016. PLEASE SEE OUR EVENTS PAGE FOR UP TO DATE INFORMATION* On Friday 12, and Saturday 13 August, join us for our first outdoor cinema experience as we screen a 1960s classic thriller and a modern box office hit on the historic cricket pitch.

An audience enjoy outdoor cinema

Friday night has a nostalgic feel with a showing of the 1961 film 'The Innocents'.  Prepare to be scared as you watch this thriller unfold against a backdrop of the house and lakes where some of the spookiest scenes took place.

On Saturday a buzz of excitement will be in the air as the action-packed Bond film 'Spectre' provides the entertainment, while a starlit sky and picnic blankets aplenty provide the atmosphere.

Gates will open at 6.30pm for picnics and the films will start as darkness falls.  Please bring your own seating and weather appropriate clothing.  Torches are also recommended.  Catering facilities and toilets will be available on the cricket pitch.

About the films

The Innocents (12A)

Based on the Henry James story "The Turn of the Screw", this supernatural gothic horror film stars Deborah Kerr as a governess who begins to fear that the two children she watches over are possessed by spirits.  Shot on location in the house and garden at Sheffield Park, this film is widely regarded as one of the best psychological thrillers of all time.

Spectre (12A)

Daniel Craig stars as James Bond in this twenty-fourth appearance of the famous secret service agent. Hugely successful at the box office, the film is jam-packed with action sequences as Bond is pitted against the global criminal organisation Spectre and attempts to thwart their plan to hijack a global surveillance network.
