Open air screenings of classic films to take place in Grizedale Forest
3:00pm Friday 7th September 2012 in News
FILM fans can snuggle up for an evening in the trees in Grizedale Forest this September to watch two open-air screenings of classic movies.
In partnership with the Forestry Commission, Eden Art’s Picnic Cinema will transform a corner of the woodlands into a magical open-air cinema.
There are two films to choose from - Steven Spielberg’s iconic Close Encounters of the Third Kind and the cult horror movie The Blair Witch Project.
A trail will lead audiences through the trees to a secret location where the films will be screened.
Live music will set the scene for each film and visitors are invited to bring picnics along to enjoy as the drama unfolds.
Cinema goers are even encouraged to get into the spirit of the films by dressing up in costume.
Antony Mottershead, Forestry Commission Arts Development Assistant at Grizedale said: “For two spectacular nights visitors will be able to enjoy great films and fantastic music in the atmospheric setting of Grizedale Forest.
The family-friendly Close Encounters of the Third Kind (PG) will be shown tomorrow and The Blair Witch Project (15) on September 22.
Doors for both films open at 6pm and the music starts from approximately 7.15pm. The films will start at dusk..
