Open air events have never been as welcome as they are this year, and to satisfy this the Purbek Film Festival is bringing four unforgettable evenings of cult cinema and family favourites to the stunning woodland setting of Durlston Country Park’s Aviary Glade, transforming it from magical wonder to eerie darkness.
The season kicks off with family favourite E.T. – The Extra-Terrestrial on Saturday 21 August.
Then a weekend of cult cinema begins on Friday 27 August with 80’s funny fairy tale The Princess Bride, based on the cult novel by William Goldman, followed by New Zealand adventure comedy Hunt for the Wilderpeople on Saturday 28 and finishing with ground-breaking horror movie The Blair Witch Project on Sunday 29 August.
Public engagement assistant, Shannon Dugdale said: “Here at Durlston we can’t hold in our excitement to be showing these films in our Aviary Glade. The setting is perfect for a night of outdoor cinema, with the surrounding woodland creating a very special atmosphere.”
From Durlston’s car park to the Aviary Glade there will be a short walk through the woodland. Be sure to dress for the weather and bring a torch. Doors open at 7.30pm with films starting at 8.30pm and running times may vary. Tickets for all films are available from www.purbeckfilm.com
