Cinema will help you enjoy the great outdoors and some blockbusters movies

MOST of us would have enviously watched American television shows and movies featuring drive-thru cinemas, cars all lined up in a row.

But with Britain’s inclement weather it is probably no surprise that they did not really take off in the same way over the pond.

But still – it would be nice to spend a warm, summer’s evening sat out watching your favourite films which is exactly what Salvage Cinema is now able to offer.

Launched this year, it has a programme of films which are already close to selling out and will feature at outdoor venues across Worcestershire.

Film fans will get something totally different from the usual cinema trip – showings of favourite films where people can enjoy good food and great company watching classics such as Back to the Future and Top Gun in the outdoors.

The inflatable screen will be appearing at Top Barn Farm, Worcester Road, Worcester for screenings of Back to the Future on Friday, July 31 and Top Gun on Saturday, August 1.

It will also be bringing outdoor screenings of family favourite films including Mamma Mia, Grease and The Goonies throughout August to Severn Valley Farm Park and Hawkbatch, Wyre Forest.

Mikey Fowler, from Stourport-on-Severn, is the brains behind Salvage Cinema and in the coming years hopes to eventually take it national.

The 25-year-old said: “We are showing people films they have probably seen before but in a completely different environment.

“It is not like when you go to a usual cinema and everyone is quiet, people can get up, grab a bit of food – it is chilled out and laidback and there are a few surprises here and there.


“It’s not just about the film, for me the idea is to watch a film with friends at something that’s a bit different.”
