Outdoor Cinema at Markeaton Park

Wed 6 Apr 2016

We are excited to announce that we are hosting an outdoor film screening of two popular films at Markeaton Park.

Ghost is being shown on Friday 12 August followed by Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Saturday 13 August. The screening is being presented by QUAD and will take place in the newly refurbished craft village.

This is the perfect summer experience, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the picturesque park before seeing one of two brilliant films. Markeaton Park has a range of activities to enjoy including footgolf, Mundy Play Centre, park walks, high ropes and Craft Village with a variety of crafting shops to explore. 

To complete the experience you can enjoy a selection of treats from the kitchen, with a variety of platters and pizzas available to pre-order for the show. You can add these items after clicking the buy now button on either event page.

Ghost is an all-time classic. When a mugging leaves Sam Wheat (Patrick Swayze) dead and his lover Molly (Demi Moore) grieving, Sam’s ghost stays behind to warn her of impending danger. But she can’t hear him or see him. No-one but reluctant psychic Oda Mae (Whoopi Goldberg) can and she doesn’t want anything to do with him. But with Molly’s life in danger, can Sam save her in time? Ghost is a great combination of romance, comedy and drama, unmissable on the big screen.

Born for the big screen, come and watch the film that smashed all kinds of records in 2015. From a galaxy far, far away to an outdoor cinema screen, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is an action packed, funny sci-fi epic that heads back to the world established in 1977’s Star Wars. 

Car parking will be available at the pay and display Markeaton Park Craft Village car park, accessible via Markeaton Lane. The screenings will take place on hard standing ground and there will be limited seating available, so we advised that you bring your own seats.
