Luna Cinema returns to Tatton Park, August 25 – 27: What’s on, ticket costs & more
The Luna Cinema has become something of an institution over the last few years, with thousands of people coming together in pure joy to watch their favourite classic movies outdoors in beautiful surroundings.
This August bank holiday weekend, after their sell out last year, Tatton Park in Cheshire is hosting Luna Cinema again, bringing you three amazing feel good films to watch under the stars. As the day time visitors leave you will be arriving for a magical night.
Luna Cinema’s philosophy is that the setting in which you experience the film is as at least as important as the film itself and Tatton Park will not disappoint. This National Trust property, set in 1000 acres of deer park, is one of the most impressive stately homes in the north west. It has a working farm, the original Tatton Old Hall (dating from the 16th Century) and the 18th Century Tatton Hall. Why not make it a day out and explore the site before beating the queue for the film?

The screening uses all the latest high tech equipment so the sound and picture quality will allow you to experience some of your favourite classics in a whole new way. The audience at the event are fully involved in the film and at the musicals you may find you are so happy to be surrounded by so many like-minded people that you want to burst into song. George Wood, the founder and Managing Director of Luna Cinema says the events have a wonderful social aspect created by sharing the experience outdoors.
What films are showing?
This year’s films are all well loved classics.
On Friday 25th August 2017 the first showing of the weekend is Back to the Future. You don’t need to be told the plot, neither do any of the audience over the age of eleven so bring your picnic (in a DeLorean if you want) and settle back for a ride through time.

The film on Saturday 26th August will give you chills, and they’re multiplying. Yes it’s time to put on your dancing shoes because Grease is the word. Watch the stars strut their stuff in this coming of age tale that has stood the test of time. Can you believe it will be forty years old next year?
Finally on Sunday 27th August it is a magical night with the first film in the successful adaptation of J.K Rowling’s books, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
What to bring?
For the best experience pack your picnic (though no glass! Plastic bottles and cans are fine) bring a rug and settle down to eat while you watch but don’t worry if you don’t want to prepare one, the venue has a bar provided by Estrella Damm and stalls with hot food. You can pre-order your food when you book your ticket.
For seating bring a blanket if you want to sit nearer the screen or pack a folding chair. There are inflatable pillows to lean on that you can purchase at the screening, as well as blankets if there just isn’t space in your Delorean.
How much does it cost?
Tickets are available from Luna Cinema’s website http://www.thelunacinema.com/ and the price for adults is £14.50 a night and for children between three and fifteen it costs £9.50. A premium ticket is £26.50 and with this ticket you watch the film from a director’s chair, enjoy a complimentary drink in the VIP bar and avoid any queues with priority access to the bar and hot food.

Last year’s screenings at Tatton Park were a sell out, so hurry, tickets will be gone soon.
