The Great Outdoor Cinema

9 August @ 7:45 pm - 11 August @ 11:00 pm

£8 – £11.25

From that brought you The Drive-In Cinema in 2020, we cannot wait to welcome you to The Great Outdoor Cinema in 2021.

This year we are ditching the cars for bean bags and deck chairs and making it all about getting outside, enjoying the fresh air and making up for lost entertainment. Enjoy our selection of street food alongside cinema snack classics such as fresh popcorn and an ice blast! Make the most of our mobile bar and sip on an ice cold gin & tonic whilst you sit back and enjoy the film in front of a beautiful backdrop of York Racecourse (subject to licensing).
