Southwold’s Outdoor Cinema is back by popular demand screening some of the most highly acclaimed films this summer.


Hosted within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, audiences will experience the stunning sunset and local hospitality before the movie begins. All films are shown on the UK’s largest 42ft screen, and audiences listen via state-of-the-art noise-cancelling headphones while seated in their own socially distanced pitches. 

We have teamed up with Southwold Arts Centre for this showing to support the more vulnerable and elderly that want to enjoy the films but require an indoor environment and earlier times. 


With a film for everyone to enjoy, from action and drama to romance and rock'n'roll to musical and comedy, Southwold's Outdoor Cinema is the best ‘socially distanced’ way to bring cinema back to Suffolk!


Proceeds from the events will be donated to our official charity, Comic Relief.



Tickets start from £12.50 per person or £16.50 per person for VIP and are available as singles or sold in groups of 2, 4 or 6.  

VIP tickets guarantee seating on the front two rows.  Standard tickets allocate seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. 



Hosted in two locations 

 - Southwold Common - seating outdoors - each group will be seated within a pitch to ensure complete safety and allow for social distancing. 

 - Southwold Arts Centre - seating indoors - seating is allocated on arrival.     

Seating is not provided on Southwold Common. It is recommended that you please bring your own seating and blankets as the evenings can get rather chilly.
