Chippenham Connected in partnership with Chippenham Town Council is excited to announce the launch of this year’s outdoor cinema screenings: Watch it Weekdays. This series of four days of cinematic fun will take place from Tuesday 21st August to Friday 24th August in Island Park, Chippenham
Last year’s inaugural outdoor cinema sessions right in the heart of Chippenham were a huge success, with tickets selling out within 3 hours of them being released! This year’s event is set to grow in more ways than one; not only will there be more tickets available, and stalls for the enjoyment of those who come along, but there will also be DOUBLE the number of films shown.
Kathryn Crosweller of Chippenham Connected said, “Last year’s event was great fun and really popular. This year we will cater to even more local people by offering a children’s film in the afternoon and films for a more adult audience in the evening, each day.”
The films will be chosen by the public via digital polls on the Watch it Weekdays Facebook event (https://www.facebook.com/events/435140603624578/) and each cinema screening will have its own theme. For the children’s films this will mean Disney, DreamWorks Animation, Comedy and Classic themes and for the adults this will include a musical, a cult classic, a superhero film and a new release. With a wide range of genres to choose from, there’ll be something for everyone in Chippenham this summer!
Cllr Sandie Webb, Leader of Chippenham Town Council said, “The outdoor cinema screenings were so very popular last year, we are delighted to see them return this summer with film choices to suit all ages.”
Chippenham Connected is seeking sponsors for this event, and local businesses are invited to find out more by emailing email@example.com. The children’s films will be kindly sponsored by Emery Gate Shopping Centre. Centre Manager Nicki Milne said, “It’s great to see the town alive with people, and the rides in the shopping centre attract children throughout the week. Emery Gate is pleased to sponsor the children’s films to give something back to the families who regularly visit the centre.”
Tickets for this year’s cinema screenings will be released at 6pm on 1st August via Eventbrite. The link to get tickets will be available through the Watch it Weekdays Facebook event https://www.facebook.com/events/435140603624578/ and also on www.chippenhamconnected.com
