Get ready for an epic summer of cinema under the stars! Enjoy a different movie every Thursday night outside the Gulbenkian Arts Centre as part of the Gulbenkian Open Air Film Festival!
The festival will be showing a variety of different films, from 90’s romantic comedy, Pretty Woman; to biographical fantasy musical, Rocketman.
Gulbenkian Open Air Film Festival events are free to attend and non-ticketed, so you can just turn up on the day!
What is ‘Pretty Woman’ about?
Running Time: 1h 59m
Starring: Richard Gere, Julia Roberts, Jason Alexander
A man in a legal but hurtful business needs an escort for some social events, and hires a beautiful prostitute he meets... only to fall in love.
Will there be food and drink?
A selection of food, drink, and snacks will be available for purchase during the event. Enjoy fries, wings, nachos, ice cream, popcorn, sweets, and drinks while you sit back and enjoy the film.
There will also be an outdoor bar, serving a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
Can I bring something to sit on?
There will be hay bales to sit on, but you are more than welcome to bring backrests, chairs, or picnic blankets to watch the film. We recommend you wrap up warm and wear lots of layers – even summer nights can get quite chilly.
What happens if it rains?
As we all know, the Great British Summer can be unpredictable, so in the event of rain, film screenings will move indoors to the Gulbenkian cinema (except for Licorice Pizza on Thursday 18 May).
What time does the film start?
The film starts at 9pm, but you are more than welcome to arrive earlier, get comfortable, and order some snacks before the film begins. Food and bar open from 6pm.
No booking required
