Enchanted Cinema returns with more alfresco cinema classics – old and nearly new – at The Gonville Hotel, while Movies on the Meadows returns for the bank holiday weekend at Grantchester.
There’s always at least one street food van present, and sometimes live music precedes the film at Enchanted events. Cult noughties film Mean Girls is first up at The Gonville on 2 August, with Call Me By Your Name and The Intouchables on the 3rd and 4th respectively.
The hits keep coming, with When Harry Met Sally, Grease, The Great Gatsby and Pulp Fiction from 15 to 18 August. Amélie is on the 22nd, followed by Dirty Dancing, Bohemian Rhapsody and A Star is Born over the next three days.
Movies on the Meadows, curated by Cambridge Film Festival, screens 12 films across four nights (23-26 August), with films ranging from Avengers: Endgame to Dr Strangelove. Elsewhere, The Star and Mouse Picture Show screens Hacksaw Ridge at the Cambridge American Cemetery on 10 August, while Open Air Cinema presents Bohemian Rhapsody at Madingley Hall on 16 August.
