Movies by Moonlight

Round up your family and friends and get ready to have the time of your life as we bring four exceptional films to the big screen at Compton Verney. Taking place across four evenings this September, join us for a magical, outdoor screening of some of your favourite films set against the back drop of our lakeside.

Thursday 22 September – American Werewolf in London

Friday 23 September – The Greatest Showman

Saturday 24 September – Encanto  (subtitled)

Sunday 25 September – West Side Story

Doors will open at 6pm and the film will start at 7.30pm.

If this is your first visit to an outdoor cinema event, don’t fear! Here are a few things we’d recommend bringing along:

  • Firstly, you’ll need something comfy to sit on, seating is not provided. Camping chairs work well. Please remember not to bring any pop-up structures or other items which could obscure the film for other visitors. We also recommend warm clothing and a toasty blanket to wrap up in, as the weather can often turn quite chilly later on in the evenings. You may also want to bring waterproof clothing, just in case… we are in the UK after all!
  • Feel free to bring a picnic. We will have everything you need from the bar to a range of delicious catering options to suit every taste.
  • Please remember to pack up and dispose of any rubbish at the end of the evening.
  • When leaving the event, a torch can also be useful but we will light your way with our festoons and driveway lighting!
  • We recommend making transport arrangements in advance. Check our website for directions. Share cars reducing the number of drivers and your emissions impact.
