Following the successful event last year, Hunstanton hosts two more outdoor cinema screenings this summer.

On Saturday 27 July at 9:00pm, after watching the sunset over the sea, the Green will be the place to put picnic blankets and to settle in for a screening of Oscar winning movie Bohemian Rhapsody.

The 12 rated film stars Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury and is a celebration of the music of Queen.

Before the film starts there will be a screening of a short black and white film from Hunstanton Heritage Centre. The classic footage takes a railway journey from King’s Lynn to Hunstanton.

On Saturday 17 August at 8:30pm, the big screen returns with a showing of the original PG rated Mamma Mia film. Another chance to sing along to some classic songs, this time from Abba.

Prior to this screening a short film called ‘A Plastic Ocean’ will be shown.

Cllr Elizabeth Nockolds, Deputy Leader of the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk, and Cabinet Member for Culture, Heritage and Health, said:  “Our open-air cinema screening was incredibly popular last year and we’re excited about its return. Two great films are being shown this year, both featuring classic songs that I’m sure the audience will want to join in with.

“Make sure you get to the Green nice and early to grab a place to sit to these free screenings”.

These events are part of the borough council's Hunstanton Heritage Gardens programme, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund to improve facilities and activities in the gardens.
