The signs have arrived, the deckchairs stacked and the big screen delivered – now, all we need for Worthing Summer Cinema is for the sun to shine…. 📽️🌞🍿
Worthing Borough Council’s events team are pushing on with preparations for the town’s first ever alfresco cinema.
For the next three days, up to 5,000 people are expected to flock to Denton Gardens to take in a range of family-friendly films shown on a giant LED screen.
First up for the free screenings tomorrow is Horton Hears A Who at 2pm and then cult classic Grease at 5pm.
In the evening, entry is by ticket only with some spaces still left for The Rocky Horror Picture Show (Saturday, 8pm) and Jaws (Sunday, 8pm) from Worthing Theatres box office.
The cinema has a capacity of 499 at anyone time so visitors are asked to be patient as, when full, entry is on a one-in, one-out basis.
Cllr Paul Baker, Mayor of Worthing, said: “The Summer Cinema is yet another initiative to provide varied events for the people of Worthing and visitors to our town.
“The Mayoress and myself are particularly looking forward to attending The Rocky Horror Picture Show, a cult movie from our youth and yes I will be Time Warping and, apologies now, singing along.”
Visitors are advised that access to Denton Gardens is restricted from now until Monday morning while the Worthing Summer Cinema is in operation.
