Cliftonwood Open Air Cinema is back!


Friday 9th September, The Lion Park Argyle Place, Cliftonwood.  

Gates open at 7pm, film starts at 8pm.

After a three year break, we're looking forward to getting back together as a community for another screening under the stars.  The Greatest Showman is a PG certificate, family-friendly musical, so come along to meet friends and neighbours for some Friday night fun.  As the soundtrack says, "Ladies and gents, this is the moment you've waited for... "

Entrance is free, but we will be collecting money to install a Defibrillator at The Lion Pub, essential first aid equipment for our neighbourhood. More info to follow...

Seating is on a first come, first served basis, so arrive early to bag your spot.  We provide chairs but many people bring rugs to sit on the grass.  The park also has easy wheelchair access but let us know ahead if you need disabled parking and we will save you a space close by. We discourage people from driving this event because street parking in Cliftonwood is very limited.  Please walk or come by taxi to the park if you can.

The Lion pub next door provides takeaway food and drink. 

Come dressed as a Circus character if you'd like to enter our Fancy Dress Competition.  But bring extra layers, too, because it can get chilly later on.  

There is no interval and so the film should finish by 10pm.

For updates keep an eye on our Facebook page or phone Emma Peddie on 07932 138650.

We would like to thank our 2022 sponsor, local estate agents Alexander May. They would like to remind everyone that they can carry out free valuations for your houses or properties in Clifton, Cliftonwood and Hotwells. They are also available to talk and give advice on anything property related….property lettings, mortgage advice & any development or refurbishment plans.

A bit of history…

The Hotwells & Cliftonwood Community Association has been running this event since 2005.  We started it as a fund-raiser for the park’s new play equipment.  It was so popular that we carried on every September, with only a couple of postponements because of bad weather.   And then Covid struck and we had to cancel in 2020 and 2021.

We’re very grateful to Chris Baker and Film Bath who provide the projection equipment and arrange the film licencing for us from FilmBank.  And also to Chris Thompson, who sets up our event lighting.

We also couldn’t run this event without the help of Fiona and Dave from The Lion pub who provide such delicious take away food and drink – and toilets – every year.

And our thanks go to the many local businesses who have sponsored this event over the years, including:

Allen & Harris

Marcruss Outdoors

Spar, Hotwells Road

The Lion Pub

The Merchants Arms

The Red Pizza Company

Wilmore Iles Architects
