Join us for a moonlit film in one of our open-air venues. Come early to play giant board games, listen to fine music, share food with your friends and, as darkness falls, allow the flicker of the screen to transport you to another world.

Pack a picnic (BYO welcome), bring a rug or your couch, wear warm clothes or pyjamas and pocket a torch to light your way home. 

Movies will not screen if it is raining. If the weather is marginal please text 'Is it on?' to 021 776623 after 7.30pm on the night.


(1953) PG, 92 mins
In this dramatic thriller, Marilyn Monroe plays an unhappy wife who plots with her lover to murder her husband while at Niagara Falls, but things do not go to plan. To quote the original trailer, this film is "a raging torrent of emotion that even nature can't control." 

From Russia With Love 

(1963) PG, 115 mins
Sean Connery is back as James Bond for another epic adventure. A mission to Istanbul gives us intrigue and action in abundance with all the traditional elements we’ve come to expect from a Bond film: spies, gadgets, gun fights, explosions, and, of course, gorgeous women.

Anne of Green Gables 

(1934) G, 78 mins
An early adaptation of the classic novel by L. M. Montgomery. Orphan Anne Shirley is adopted by Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert and goes to live at Green Gables. Hilarity and scrapes abound due to her outbursts of temper, strong imagination and romantic notions.

The Hustler 

(1961) PG, 134 mins
Paul Newman is ‘Fast Eddie’, a pool-playing hustler in this superb drama that was nominated for multiple Academy Awards. He is determined to be the best, but the price might just be too high.


(1965) G, 92 mins
Cult members, mad scientists, sacrificial rings, and The Beatles. What else could a musical comedy ask for?
