The silver screen is coming to Hinchingbrooke Park with a series of Flix and Picnics events organised by Huntingdonshire District Council.
Cinemagoers will be able to book a “box” on the grass for a maximum of six people from their social bubble so they can watch the film as a group.
Film fans will also be able to pre-order sparking wine, beer and a picnic platter for the sessions which take place on July 18 and July 25.
On Saturday July 18 Secret Life of Pets 2 will be showing from 4pm and Rocketman from 7pm. Grease will be screened from 7pm on Saturday July 25.
Cllr Marge Beuttell, executive councillor for operations and environment, said: “We are hugely excited to announce an open-air cinema for Hinchingbrooke Country Park and by securing box office hits we hope all ages can enjoy the experience.
