This year, the screenings will take place across the first two weekends in September in Kirkby, Sutton, Selston and Hucknall.

Each location will be showing two blockbuster films as voted for by residents; a family-friendly film from 2.30pm and an evening showing from 6.30pm.

Coun Jason Zadrozny, leader of Ashfield District Council, said: “The outdoor cinema screening events will be a real celebration for Ashfield. ”

"We know how much residents loved the outdoor cinema events when we first introduced them in 2019, and if it wasn’t for the pandemic, we would have held them again last year.

“These screenings will be better than ever with two film options to suit everyone’s tastes. We have invested over £2million into our parks and green spaces over the past two years, so these events are the perfect chance to show them off.”
