Amid the current COVID-19 crisis, the Luna summer season is still planning on going ahead with its extensive social distancing measures in place.

Silver screen under the stars

After a somewhat turbulent few months for cinema, when it appeared only drive-in screens might see the light of day this year, film fans across the country (and those without cars) can now look forward to summer evenings in gorgeous settings, enjoying great films on giant screens under the stars.

Each Luna screening will take place in the fresh air, with social distanced pitches allowing the audience to keep safely apart at all times.

Book early

Tickets for all Luna open air screenings this summer will offer a designated pitch per booking group, each with directors’ chairs laid out in advance for each person, ensuring guests have space to kick back and enjoy the setting safely.

Seating will be sanitised between each screening, and bookers can choose whether to book a two-person or four-person pitch, though all members of each party must be from no more than two households. Larger groups from more households can sit in adjacent pitches.

Each Luna event will offer socially distanced queuing for toilets and ample hand sanitising facilities for all guests, allowing attendees to safely relax and enjoy the ultimate cinema experience under the stars. As always, The Luna Cinema audiences are also welcome to bring along picnics to screenings.

Dozens of blockbusters to enjoy in beautuiful settings

Film-lovers across the country can choose from scores of outdoor screenings in some of the UK’s most prestigious and historically important venues.

Venues featured in the season include showings at Rochester Castle and Hatfield House.Anyone missing the big screen during lockdown will be in for a treat with an amazing line-up of box office greats and award winners this summer season, with the Oscar winning Rocketman, featuring Golden Globe winner Taron Egerton as Elton John.
