Enjoy cinema under the stars at Sheffield Amphitheatre this week
The Luna Cinema, in partnership with American Express, rounds off its summer season of outdoor screenings with three Sheffield shows at South Street’s Sheffield Amphitheatre this week.
Set against the stunning backdrop of the Sheffield Skyline, catch outdoor screenings of Star Wars: A New Hope (Tuesday 21 September), The Greatest Showman Sing A Long (Wednesday 22 September) and Grease (Thursday 23 September) for the last time this year, before the weather closes in.
Tickets are available to buy from thelunacinema.com and prices start from £15.50 including booking fees. Audiences can choose to upgrade their general admission ticket with an optional seated upgrade ticket to include use of a Luna director’s chair, or for the ultimate VIP experience guests can opt for the Luna Luxe ticket, which offers two people the chance to watch the film from luxury sofa seating with blankets, heaters, a sharing hamper of food, a bottle of bubbles and a mini cup of luxury ice cream Häagen-Dazs, to complete the cinematic experience.
This year, The Luna Cinema also launched its “Summer of Surprise” initiative where guests who are celebrating a special occasion at Luna, or just want to treat someone they are attending with, can nominate themselves to receive a surprise treat at the screening.
The Luna Bar with Moretti will be present at all screenings serving a full selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, as well as the famous Italian beer itself of course; and there will delicious hot food available at all screenings.
Audiences are also welcome to dig out their hampers and pack a picnic (though the bringing of alcohol to the events is restricted). Both food and drink at Luna’s screenings will be available to order using a handy “click and collect” service to avoid time spent queuing.
At the launch of this year’s schedule of events, George Wood, founder of The Luna Cinema, said “There could hardly be a more anticipated summer than this 2021, post-lockdown, season; every outing we arrange is set to feel special and unique after so long away from the people and activities we love. Cinema has provided the magic of escape through the decades, and we know that The Luna Cinema can bring joy and respite to the lives of movie-goers across the country this summer, more than ever before.
“After so many months spent watching films at home, we are delighted to be inviting the country to return to the big screen, with our brand of socially spacious, open air cinema experiences.
“So picture this: your favourite film; the people you’ve missed (or just missed spending quality time with); a starry summer sky above, and all around you the most inspiring and beautiful settings: castles, Royal Parks, abbeys, palaces and stately homes. We are promising our guests an outing worthy of the wait – and we are counting down the days to welcoming Britain back to the movies.”
