Big Screen In The Park Returns

Published July 7, 2014

Big Screen In The Park returns to Exeter’s Northernhay Gardens for four nights of fabulous films under the stars.

This year we are venturing to the moon and back, saving the world from super villains, visiting the bottom of the ocean in search of jaguar sharks and reaching top speeds in vintage Formula 1 cars. It sounds quite exhausting… but rest assured, all you have to do
is lie back, nestle on a rug and watch someone else take all the action. We also have the usual array of tempting goodies to keep you happy while you watch, including Exeter’s Bikecaffe serving locally roasted coffee, wood fired pizzas from the Little Devon Pizza Co and homemade butter fudge popcorn. Plus our very own Phoenix Café Bar will be running the special Bar Belafonte, serving specially selected craft beers.

Unlike many other cinema experiences Big Screen In The Park celebrates the magic of cinema with 35mm film projection. It is a wonderful thing to watch reels of film thread its way through a projector, accompanied by the whirring sounds of the sturdy machine as it clicks into action sending the first flicker of light to the big screen.

As a film programmer there is nothing like hearing the cheer from the audience as the projected image jumps into action and the film experience begins. We can’t wait to see you there.
