Hundreds of movie lovers have voted to decide the two films shown at this year’s outdoor cinema in Tamworth Castle Grounds.
The winning movies have now been revealed as The Greatest Showman, which came out on top for the earlier 9pm slot, followed by a showing of Silence of the Lambs at midnight on Saturday, August 8.
Councillor John Chesworth, cabinet member for culture and operational services, said: “The cinema has been a hugely popular event in the eight years since it was added to the annual outdoor events programme. The past four years we decided to give audiences the chance to choose the films they wanted to watch under the stars and the event subsequently ended up as a sell-out.
“Due to the popular success of this event, I would urge anyone who would like to attend to book their tickets straight away to avoid disappointment.”
Cinema goers are invited to take warm blankets and a picnic, although food and drink will be on sale during both events. No glass, gazebos or alcohol are to be taken on site, but a licensed bar will be available throughout.
Gates open 45 minutes prior to The Greatest Showman and 15 minutes before Silence of the Lambs. Entrance is by ticket only and both movies are for audiences aged 18 and over, due to licensing restrictions.
Tickets are priced at £10 per screening and are available online at www.tamworthartsandevents.co.uk, in person from Tamworth Information Centre in the Tamworth Assembly Rooms, or by calling the Box Office on 01827 709618. A transaction fee of £1 is payable on all online and telephone bookings.
