Updated: Feb 20, 2023

Halloween is fast approaching but there is still time to book your Outdoor Cinema experience ....

Here are a few ideas to help you plan your CREEPY event in the dark............or light.


The great news is the evenings are closing in and it's getting dark earlier which will help your outdoor cinema experience set the mood, however it is also getting colder so you need to ensure your event is still enjoyable and safe.

- Provide blankets | Ensure your audience stay warm and safe

- Additional Lighting | Have flood lights and torches on hand to help people make there way back to the car / public transport safely

- Consider starting your film earlier whiles its still light. This can add theatre to your screening as darkness sets in and makes arrival easier and safer for your audience

- Child friendly films can be held during the day using LED video screens overcoming the colder evenings and late finishes
