Pictures in the Park

Wednesday 3, Thursday 4 and Friday 5 July 2019
Basingstoke Festival 2019

Open Air Cinema

Pictures In The Park 2019 promises to be an outstanding event and a highlight in the Basingstoke Festival 2019 Programme. The open air cinema series, delivered by Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, will continue to build on the success of the 2017 and 2918 sell-out showing of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice, Dirty Dancing, Grease and The Greatest Showman to a picnic crowd in War Memorial Park.

Experience the magic of the movies in the War Memorial Park this summer. Three fantastic film musicals will be broadcast on a big screen under the stars as part of Basingstoke Festival 2019’s Pictures in the Park programme.  When the light fades – after 9pm each evening – audiences will be treated to a very special outdoor cinematic experience right in the heart of the town.  First up on Wednesday 3 July is Baz Luhrmann’s sumptuous Oscar nominated period romance Moulin Rouge! (12), starring Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor as Satine and Christian, who meet in the famous titular venue in the Montmartre Quarter of Paris and fall in love. Enjoy inventive reworkings of popular pop hits plus the original climactic tearjerker Come What May.  On Thursday 4 July, raise your hands in the air to clap along to the music of Queen as featured in the 2018 box office smash hit Bohemian Rhapsody (12A), starring a Golden Globe-winning Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury. The film, which has also been nominated for five Oscars including Best Picture and Best Actor, has become the the highest-grossing biopic of all time at the box office. Then on Friday 5 July, revisit some of the hits of Swedish supergroup ABBA in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (PG). This irresistible sequel sees new faces, including legendary performer Cher, join some old favourites for more fun in the sun and, of course, more singing. The film’s musical numbers include Waterloo, SOS, Knowing Me Knowing You and Fernando.    Gates will open at 7.30pm on each evening. Tickets will be £10 plus booking fee. Limited deckchair seating is available for £15 plus booking fee. The Cabinet member responsible for arts and heritage councillor Terri Reid said: “These evenings in the park are always an incredibly popular part of the Basingstoke Festival programme and they sell out quickly. “The atmosphere is wonderful as people come together and gather in the park to laugh, cry and sing together. I would certainly recommend booking your tickets early!”
