The Open Air Film Festival

The Milton Keynes Open Air Film Festival at Campbell Park is back for its fourth year and it’s bigger and better than ever before with a Friday Night Drive In and six free films on Saturday and Sunday.

The Parks Trust is presenting Campbell Park’s first Drive In Movie – the classic spooky comedy Ghostbusters on Friday 19 August which is now SOLD OUT! However there are six free films over Saturday and Sunday.  On Sci-Fi Saturday, 20 August, there are aliens and action aplenty with Avatar, ET and Back to the Future.  Sunday 21 August is Smooth Sunday with films about friendship, relationships and romance – Toy Story, Twilight and South Pacific. 

Film-lovers will be able to see some firm family favourites on a giant screen using the latest LED technology. The films will be shown at the following times:

So grab your friends, pack a picnic, popcorn, seats, blanket or rug and get an afternoon, evening or weekend’s entertainment for free.  There will be an array of food stalls, children’s funfair rides and the Heart FM megaslide and Heart presenters Stuart and Natalie to keep you entertained between films.

Julie Dawes, The Parks Trust’s Events Coordinator, said: “Our open-air cinema attracts thousands every year and we wanted to say thank you to supporters of this event by increasing the number of free films and adding the exciting new Drive-In Night.  We’re really grateful to Heart FM for being our official media sponsor and to Geoffrey Leaver Solicitors who are generously sponsoring our Saturday night film Back to the Future.”

As a firm that has grown with Milton Keynes over the years we are proud to be contributing to something that brings such enjoyment to people and families in and around Milton Keynes."
