Picnic Cinema Aug 10th & 11th 2018

Picnic Cinema Aug 10th & 11th 2018

Films are announced for Picnic Cinema’s return to Muncaster for the weekend in August 2018; two classic films on the big screen on the Castle front lawn and the best summer party you’ll attend!

Friday 10th, The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (15)

Get ready to shake your groove thing to 70s & 80s disco classics and karaoke favourites. Keep the Picnic Cinema fancy dress tradition! Drag is the thing – flip flops, feathers and crazy hair adornments.

Saturday 11th, The Big Lebowski (18)

Musically this will be an eclectic mix of American folk and blues with some Latin American twists. For clothing, we’re looking for relaxed and cardigan heavy, with (we’re told) bonus points for anyone all in purple, or in their dressing gowns.

The evening’s entertainment begins from around 7pm with the films screening from around 9.30pm (as it needs to be dark). The event goes ahead regardless of the weather, so if it rains, we will get wet! Do come prepared for the conditions and you will also need your own seating.

Although you are welcome to picnic, there will be food and drink available to buy plus the Castle cafe will be open from 8am for campers’ breakfasts in the morning.
