Video: Movie magic in Warwick this weekend

Waiting for Video...

The magic of the silver screen comes to Warwick this weekend with another series of open air movie screenings in the town centre.

Following a sell-out screening of 1940s classic It’s A Wonderful Life in the Old Court House on Wednesday night, Jack Linstead, founder of the Warwick Rocks group, had secured £8,000 from the county council to stage the latest open-air event.

Food and gift stalls will be set up in Market Place tomorrow (Friday) and remain as crowds turn up on Saturday and Sunday to view one or all of up to four films free of charge.

Once again a giant screen will be set up and people are invited to take their own chairs or view from nearby bars and cafes.

From 6pm on Saturday the Christmas favourite Love Actually will be shown, while on Sunday families can take their pick from the Muppets Christmas Carol at 1pm, followed by Miracle on 34th Street at 4pm and finishing with Elf at 7pm.

Mr Linstead, who is supported by a number of volunteers, said: “Of course, we won’t have the scorching temperatures of the summer, but hopefully everyone will get into the spirit, bring along their chairs and wrap up warmly!”
