Roll up, roll up! Big Screen In The Park is coming to town for seven nights of outdoor cinema this summer. Be wowed, spellbound and entertained by the best cult classics and this year's must-see blockbusters. Big Screen In The Park 2018 has it all; bearded ladies, rebel humanoids, blades for fingers…


The city’s largest outdoor cinema event returns to Northernhay Gardens from Monday 6th to Sunday 12th of August. Visitors to the annual event can expect al fresco films, bars, picnics and on-site entertainment. This is a unique opportunity to experience the magic of the movies on a huge 10m screen, with the illuminated Cathedral city as a stunning backdrop.


The film line up will treat locals and holidaymakers to a week of cult classics and this year’s hottest blockbusters. Sing your heart out to The Greatest Showman, enjoy a bold twist on the Marvel universe with Black Panther, and revel in extraordinary performances at Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Alongside these new releases, you can also enjoy dystopian sci-fi with Blade Runner: The Final Cut and Tim Burton’s darkly sweet fairytale Edward Scissorhands. In an exciting twist to the event, two more films are going to be announced at a later date which promise to round off this al fresco film week in style.


Tickets cost £6 in advance or £7 on the gate and can be purchased from or by calling Exeter Phoenix’s box office on 01392 667080. Gates and bars will open from 7pm with films starting around 9pm.


Big Screen In The Park is supported by Princesshay Exeter, Exeter BID and St Austell Brewery.
