Audiences of thousands have enjoyed Pop-up Cinema Yorkshire at screenings and outdoor events around the county and beyond for the last seven years, getting the full cinema experience along with a licensed bar, hot food stalls and popcorn.

This year’s programme includes Disney’s Oscar-winning Encanto, as well as Raya and the Last Dragon, the story of a warrior princess on a mission. Fans of a singalong can enjoy The Greatest Showman and Grease, and there’s The Goonies and Dirty Dancing for anyone who loves a classic.

West Side Story, directed by Stephen Spielberg, is also on offer, alongside The Lion King and Ghostbusters.

Regular attendee Sarah Kristiansen, from Helmsley, is looking forward to new season.

“We love coming every year, and we always camp as well," he said.

"The surroundings are beautiful, it’s really safe for the kids, and they love watching a film, having hot dogs, then camping out overnight. It’s safe, it’s really good fun, and it’s become a regular fixture in the family calendar.”

Mike Lynskey from Pop-up Cinema Yorkshire says, ““Yorkshire is amazing, and it’s great to be able to contribute to what the county has to offer to people who live here and people who visit during the summer.

“We’re really excited about what’s on offer this year. We always aim to get a really good variety of films, so that there’s something for everyone – whether it’s families, groups of mates, or couples. We just want people to come along and have a good time with us, watching great films under the stars.”
