Picturehouse Outdoor Cinema Comes to Museum Gardens

Picturehouse Outdoor Cinema heads to York for a weekend of summery outdoor screenings in Museum Gardens. Check the listings below!

This summer we’re taking City Screen outdoors to the stunning surroundings of the Medieval ruins of St. Mary’s Abbey in York Museum Gardens.

Arrive from 7.00pm to enjoy the last of the evening sun with a fantastic range of drinks from our pop-up bar, including draught beer! A specially prepared BBQ will be provided, cooked by the chefs at City Screen.

The film will start around 9.00pm – as soon as it gets dark. Before the film there will be entertainment in the form of garden games and our very own film quiz – prizes will be up for grabs!

The screenings take place in the open, feel free to bring along blankets, cushions or small picnic chairs – however, these must be placed towards the rear of the grass area.

This is a licensed event and we will have a fully stocked bar on site. We cannot accept any alcohol brought in from outside. Cash and card payment will be accepted.

Check out the listing below for this summer’s Outdoor Cinema line-up.

Enjoy the show!


Bohemian Rhapsody (Singalong!) [12A]- Thursday 8 August

bohemian-rhapsody

Academy Award winning film Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near-implosion as Mercury’s lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. In the process, cementing the legacy of a band that were always more like a family, and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.
