Open-air cinema to return to East of England Arena

by Joe Gallop

The East of England Arena and Events Centre and organisers Drive-In Cinema will host the first open-air cinema event of the year at the Peterborough venue, following its drive-in event at the venue in April.

The Great Outdoor Cinema event will screen the Lion King, Jurassic Park and Dirty Dancing from 6 – 8 August. Guests will sit in the open-air with beanbags, deckchairs and picnic blankets after Covid-19 restrictions had previously confined them to their cars.

Pamela Newbould, senior events manager at East of England Arena, said: “I know that local filmgoers will be very pleased that now they can enjoy the experience in a more sociable setting.

“We are still planning all our events in line with Step 3 guidelines on social distancing and hygiene, to avoid problems arising from further delays to the lifting of restrictions.”
