 A fabulous weekend of free movies to enjoy in the sunshine and also the cool of the evening from Friday through to Sunday.


Chairs were available but you could bring your own deck chair or a blanket and picnic and enjoy the exciting atmosphere of watching outdoor movies.


It was a special screen that was watchable even in strong sunlight and a great sound system.


There were hamburgers and drinks available and the RBWM ensured their recycling stand was there to educate us!
It was a fabulous initiative of the council and one we hope will be repeated.
Movies included Grease, Indiana Jones, Mary Poppins, Shrek and the Italian Job.
