Torre Abbey Open Air Cinema Festival

Torre Abbey Open Air Cinema Festival

Don’t miss eight nights of fantastic open-air cinema in the stunning grounds of Torre Abbey, amongst the abbey ruins. We are working in partnership with the Barn Cinema and Dartington Arts to bring you an amazing programme of films under the stars.

THURSDAY 17 AUGUST
SOFIA COPPOLA'S LA TRAVIATA (U)
Acclaimed director Sofia Coppola and designer Valentino combine their talents to create one of the most ambitious productions of Verdi's enduring opera ever.

FRIDAY 18 AUGUST
AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON (15)
An undoubted cult classic, with brilliant make-up effects for its time, it’s both utterly terrifying and very, very funny. Just remember, keep clear of the moors, stay on the road and beware the moon...

SATURDAY 19 AUGUST
DIRTY DANCING 30 ANNIVERSARY SCREENING (15)
Prepare to have the time of your life (again) as we host a 30th anniversary showing of the cult classic. Grab a group of friends and help us create a real party atmosphere, with fancy dress, singing, watermelons and dirty dancing welcome!

SUNDAY 20 AUGUST
JAWS
When an insatiable great white shark terrorizes Amity Island, a police chief, an oceanographer and a grizzled shark hunter seek to destroy the beast. We'd suggest going swimming before the film, rather than after...

THURSDAY 24 AUGUST
LA LA LAND (12A)
Winner of 6 Academy Awards® including Best Director for writer/director Damien Chazelle, and winner of a record-breaking seven Golden Globe® Awards, La La Land is a stunning piece of cinema and perfect for watching under the stars.

FRIDAY 25 AUGUST
THE LION KING (U)
A young lion cub named Simba can't wait to be king. But his uncle craves the title for himself and will stop at nothing to get it. This timeless Disney classic is the perfect night out for all the family. Fancy dress welcome!

SATURDAY 26 AUGUST
WONDER WOMAN (12A)
An Amazon princess finds her idyllic life on an island occupied only by female warriors interrupted when a pilot crash-lands nearby. After rescuing him, she learns that World War I is engulfing the planet, and vows to use her superpowers to restore peace. Why not dress as your favourite super hero.

SUNDAY 27 AUGUST
