FAQs

  • Can I reserve tickets prior to the event?
    As this is a FREE event we will not be reserving any advanced tickets. A queuing system will be in place and people will be allowed into the viewing area on a first come first served basis.  We will try our best to accommodate everyone but do anticipate this being a very popular event so please don’t be disappointed if you can’t watch your first choice of film. Numbers are restricted for your safety and enjoyment.

     

  • Can we stay for the whole day?
    With this being a FREE event, we anticipate it being very popular. After each film all cinema spectators will be asked to remove all their belongings and rubbish and will be asked to vacate the Green so that everyone gets a chance to enjoy the event.

    YES - Please ensure that there is NO GLASS or SHARP OBJECTS. Please consider other film users enjoyment when packing snacks. You don’t want to be that person rustling around throughout the film.
