The most scenic cinema around is set to return to Brighton Beach this summer, now hosted by London based Luna Cinema, who are bringing with them the highest definition outdoor, 10×5.6m, LED screen in the country to ensure the display lives up to the backdrop. Over the summer period from Thurs 14 June to Sun 15 July, you can make the most of the full bar and extensive selection of hot food, pull up a deck chair, and enjoy one of over 80 open air screenings, including a varied selection of films and the most anticipated sporting events of the summer.
As in previous, Brighton’s Big Screen years, the screen will be situated in front of Madeira Terrace, 400m east of the Pier. The summer programme will open on Thurs 14 June with free entry to the opening ceremony of the Football World Cup and the first fixture of Russia vs Saudi Arabia, followed by a free screening of Jaws, in the most fitting setting imaginable. The programme of sporting events runs for the duration of the World Cup and includes the British Grand Prix and the latter stages of Wimbledon, up to and including the Ladies’ final on Sat 14 July, before culminating with the World Cup final on Sun 15 July. The catalogue of films includes cult classics like Dirty Dancing, Grease and The Who’s Quadrophenia, as well recent shouldn’t-have-misseds, such as Dunkirk, The Greatest Showman, and the brilliant, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri.
Admission start at £5 (£3.50 for 3-15 year olds) but there is always the option to upgrade to one of the VIP Beach Huts for £85 for the day, which include luxury seating, a complimentary mini bar, and butler service. With a wonderfully belligerent attitude to perils of outdoor cinema (“In the event of bad weather, the event will go ahead.”) the summer screen on the beach again promises to be an essential feature of the Brighton seafront.
