The San Miguel Picturehouse Pop-Up is heading to Plantation Gardens, Norwich this summer for a weekend of outdoor cinema.
The screenings take place in the open, with a limited number of deckchairs available on a first come first served basis. We will also have cardboard ‘bumbox’ seating available for sale but feel free to bring along small picnic chairs – however these must be placed towards the rear of the cinema area.
This is a licensed event, so we cannot accept any alcohol brought in from outside, however a bar will be open for beer and wine sales. You are welcome to bring a picnic!
Screening take place around 9.30, or as soon as it becomes dark. You are invited to arrive early, relax and enjoy a drink in the surroundings. Gates will open at 7.00.
