An outdoor cinema is due to head to two venues in south Warwickshire later this year.

The Luna Cinema, in partnership with American Express, have announced a summer programme at more than 50 locations.

A new location for the cinema includes Ragley Hall, which joins existing Luna venue Warwick Castle.

The screenings list includes favourites like Bohemian Rhapsody, Joker and The Greatest Showman; classics like Casablanca and Some Like It Hot; as well as all the popular perennials, from Top Gun to Dirty Dancing and Jurassic Park to Harry Potter.

This year the Luna Cinema is also launching its “Summer of Surprise” initiative where guests who are celebrating a special occasion, or want to treat someone they are attending with, can nominate themselves to receive a surprise treat at the screening.

The Luna Bar with Moretti will be present at all screenings serving a full selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, as well as the famous Italian beer itself of course; and there will delicious hot food available at all screenings.

Audiences are also welcome to bring their own food (though the bringing of alcohol to the events is restricted).

Both food and drink will be available to order using a “click and collect” service to avoid time spent queuing.

George Wood, founder of The Luna Cinema, said: “There could hardly be a more anticipated summer than this 2021, post-lockdown, season; every outing we arrange is set to feel special and unique after so long away from the people and activities we love.

"Cinema has provided the magic of escape through the decades, and we know that The Luna Cinema can bring joy and respite to the lives of movie-goers across the country this summer, more than ever before.

"After so many months spent watching films at home, we are delighted to be inviting the country to return to the big screen, with our brand of socially spacious, open air cinema experiences.

"We are promising our guests an outing worthy of the wait – and we are counting down the days to welcoming Britain back to the movies.”

Tickets are now on sale and the season runs from June 29 until October 3.

Tickets are available to buy from thelunacinema.com and prices start from £15.50 including booking fees.

Audiences can choose to upgrade their general admission ticket with an optional seated upgrade ticket to include use of a Luna director’s chair, or for the ultimate VIP experience guests can opt for the Luna Luxe ticket, which offers two people the chance to watch the film from sofa seating with blankets, heaters, a sharing hamper of food, a bottle of bubbles and a mini cup of luxury ice cream Häagen-Dazs.
