Here is a list of the films that will be shown at Harborough's drive-in cinema - and how to get tickets

The cinema will be heading to the town in June

Monday, 1st March 2021, 11:32 am
Over 30 top films will be screened across three weeks in the exciting new initiative at Market Harborough Showground, near the Innovation business centre.

Fancy popping out to see a classic movie with your family or friends on a sunny day or balmy night in Market Harborough this summer?

The Shawshank Redemption, Jurassic Park or Mamma Mia?

If so a new all-action drive-in cinema heading to the town in June will be just the ticket.

Especially after the country has been locked down amid the Covid-19 pandemic for a year this month and we haven’t been able to get out for love nor money.

Over 30 top films will be screened across three weeks in the exciting new initiative at Market Harborough Showground, near the Innovation business centre.

The Covid-secure feast of entertainment, the biggest in the region, will be the first event to be held at the new East Midlands Drive-In Venue.

And it’s being staged by Fleckney Events, based just a few miles up the road on Wentworth Road, Fleckney.

So you’ll be able to go along, pitch up and enjoy fantastic movies for all the family at ‘The Big Summer’ festival showing from June 8-June 30.

Comedians, singers or bands will entertain you on the big stage before the curtain goes up on the blockbuster you’re itching to see.

And you can tuck into burgers, pizza, popcorn and sweets - available to buy on site through an order and collect-style system.

A bar will be set up – and you can also take in your own food.

A mystery film night will be held on Thursdays for NHS and emergency services workers as well as others who have a Blue Light Card.
