Open air cinema is back for 2019 showing “Bohemian Rhapsody” on Friday 9th August – Gates open at Prince Albert Gardens (by the pier) from 7.30pm for picnics with the film starting at 8.45pm. Please bring something warm and your own seating.
We received great feedback following our first ever outdoor cinema evening last year showing “The Greatest Showman”, so we are delighted be running the event again. However, this event is a large investment for us because we must hire the film equipment, barriers, toilets and pay for the film rights. Last year we only just managed to cover these costs, but what we would really like to do is cover these costs and raise some money for the Swanage Lifeboat Station.
In attempt to keep this event going we are running the event slightly differently this year by asking people to make donations if you attend, rather than buying fixed price tickets. We hope this will make the event affordable to all, and this will also change how the film rights fee is calculated, setting a fixed charge at the time of booking, rather than a variable charge linked to ticket sales.
We are suggesting a donation of £10 for adults and £5 for under 16s. There will also be a selection of popcorn, sweets and drinks (both alcoholic and soft) for you to buy on your way in to help us to raise funds to cover the evening’s costs and keep the lifeboats running at Swanage. We’d love to keep this event in our calendar for years to come, but we can only do that with your support, so please come along!
