Big Screen in the Park makes a welcome return for 2022 with 4 magical evenings of outdoor cinema from 10th-13th of August. Organised by Exeter Phoenix, friends and families will be spoilt for choice with a lineup of new, old, cult and classic films at Northernhay Gardens in Exeter.

On the 11th of August, The French Dispatch will be screened.

Starring in the comedy drama film is Benicio Del Toro, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton and Timothy Chalamet.

Wes Anderson’s 2021 film could easily be his most accomplished movie yet with its stunning visuals and magical nostalgia. Its exciting storyline entails magazine editor Arthur Howitzer’s death, followed by an eclectic mix of journalists and writers coming together one last time. A recent film that must not be missed!

Screenings start at 9pm with gates open at 7pm every evening.

Visitors will be able to enjoy live entertainment, pop-up food stalls and bar serving a range of drinks including Karev Lager and Après Beer. The outdoor cinema can also be enjoyed with the locally sourced and delicious picnics from Greendale Farm which can be pre-ordered when booking your tickets.
