Pop-up Cinema Yorkshire is part of Scarborough-based C3 Events who have previously been responsible for the hugely popular Beached Festival, Scarborough’s Open Air Theatre and the annual firework spectacular Starfire.

Forestry England is working in partnership with Pop up Cinema Yorkshire to provide visitors with a chance to see their favourite films in unique forest venues throughout the year.

A high quality cinema system will be put up for the events, as well as a range of themed food and drink stalls with a licensed bar.

Mike Lynskey of C3 Events said: “This is our sixth year showing movies in Dalby Forest and it’s a fabulous place to watch a film.

"There is a brilliant atmosphere and obviously the forest is beautiful.

"We’ve been working very hard with Forestry England and the local authority to put Covid safety measures in place and plan to make the shows as safe as we possibly can.

"But we’re positive that our cinemas won’t just be an exercise in running a Covid-safe event.

"I think it’s time we all had a bit of fun too.

"The shows are billed as a 'forest camp out' as we are offering camping at all the Dalby events.

"You cannot normally camp in the forest so were very lucky that Forestry England have allowed us to do this.

"It’s quite a special thing.

"So pack your picnic and your tent and join us for an incredible cinematic forest adventure.

The August screening of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back has already sold out.

Tickets are available online at www.popupcinema.org priced from £14.50 for adults and £9.50 for children.

Only a limited number of tickets are available, and early booking is recommended.

The screenings take place in the evenings and begin at sunset.
