Open air family cinema at Dreamland this Summer

Dreamland is turning the park into an open-air cinema this summer.

The amusement park will be showing family-friendly films and sing-a-longs on its huge HD outdoor screen on selected days over the coming weeks as part of the summer Roller Coast Festival.

Dreamland is launching a Thursday Night Cinema Club and Sunday Family Screenings.

Guests can book a free ticket to the events (provided on a first come first served basis), or upgrade to tickets that include food options and/or deckchair reservations.

Dreamland CEO Eddie Kemsley said: “We’ve got a sizzling, all-you-can-treat summer ahead at Dreamland, and now parents don’t need to worry about choosing between screen time and fresh air and exercise – we’ve got you covered!

“The park is perfect for those wanting to scream their lungs out on our rides, but it’s also a gorgeous spot for relaxing with friends and family with a great film.

“Bring a blanket and sunscreen, pick a spot on the Dreamland steps, dress up if you feel inclined, and watch the credits roll.”

Snacks, beers, tea and fizz are available in the food court.
