Pop Up Cinema to Screen 'Star Wars The Force Awakens' at Dalby Forest
This Easter sees the first of Dalby Forest’s new pop up Cinema events.Star Wars – The Force Awakens will be beamed in to Adderstone Field, along with a host of live characters from the film including Darth Vader and his Stormtroopers.
The Forestry Commission are working in partnership with Pop-Up Cinema Yorkshire to provide visitors with a chance to see their favourite films in this unique setting throughout the year. A high quality cinema system will be erected for the events, as well as a range of themed food and drink stalls with a licenced bar.
Pop-up Cinema Yorkshire are part of Scarborough based company Sant’Angelo Events who have previously been responsible for the hugely popular Beached Festival, Scarborough’s Open Air Theatre and the annual firework spectacular ‘Starfire’. Their cinema screen has been ‘popping-up’ around Yorkshire for the last two years, including their sell-out screening of Withnail & I in February, but this is the first event of this kind in Dalby Forest.
The film shattered box office records upon its debut, eventually grossing over $926 million domestic and $2.05 billion worldwide. Featuring new heroes and villains, along with classic characters, thrilling action, and a heartfelt story, Star Wars: The Force Awakens connected with fans and deepened the mythology of Star Wars.
Operations Director Jon Robinson said:
“Up to now Lucasfilms have kept a very tight rein on the rights to show the Star Wars films at outdoor events. As big Star Wars fans, we are delighted to have been given the opportunity to show The Force Awakens before it is available on general release. We are also very excited about bringing UKS Garrison of Stormtroopers to the screening which should make for an unforgettable event.”
Only a limited number of tickets are available for the screening which will take place on Friday 1 April. Early booking is advised. Tickets are available online at www.popupcinema.org and are priced at £13.50 for adults and £8.50 for children (including booking fee).
