Open Air Cinema 2019

Thursday 1st August 2019 - Saturday 14th September 2019

Plymouth Arts Cinema’s Open Air Cinema is returning for 2019, offering audiences the opportunity to enjoy their favourite films in a series of iconic city locations.


Fisherman’s Friends at Tinside Lido

Friday 2nd August 2019

One of the feelgood films of the year – and one which we all love in the South West! Based on the true story of the Port Isaac sea shanty group, this is a lovely, heart-warming South West tale.


The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert at Tinside Lido

Saturday 3rd August 2019

The ultimate feelgood movie with a killer soundtrack and even more killer one-liners. Dress to impress.


Alien at Tinside Lido

Friday 23rd August 2019

In Tinside, no one can hear you scream! Ridley Scott’s sci-fi masterpiece is 40 years old this year so we thought we would celebrate with a special open air screening to remind ourselves of just how atmospheric and terrifying this still is.


Bohemian Rhapsody at Tinside Lido

Saturday 24th August 2019

The first of our two summer screenings of the Oscar-winning Bohemian Rhapsody. Freddie Mercury defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet.


The Birds at Tinside Lido

Sunday 25th August 2019

What better place to watch the Hitchcock classic about killer birds than right on the waterfront, surrounded by seagulls who want to steal your pasties?!


Captain Marvel at Royal William Yard

Thursday 12th September 2019

With a fierce performance from Brie Larson, this is the superhero film we’ve all been waiting for.


The Rocky Horror Picture Show at Royal William Yard

Friday 13th September 2019

The film that the description ‘Cult Classic’ was made for. Dress to impress, bring your best feather boa and your very best dance moves to do the Time Warp with us on Friday the 13th.


Bohemian Rhapsody at Royal William Yard

Saturday 14th September 2019

Be sure to catch our last open air screening of the utterly brilliant, Oscar-winning Bohemian Rhapsody. Join in the singing, dance along and wear a white vest if you dare!
