Eastleigh’s Outdoor Cinema Season has received sponsorship from a local decorating shop.

The programme, part of The Point, Eastleigh’s Summer Social, invites audiences to grab a drink and some popcorn from the pop-up bar, pull up a deckchair and enjoy a line-up of blockbuster and classic film screenings on the Outdoor Garden Stage.

The Outdoor Cinema Season runs every Saturday evening until 3 August. The remaining movies are ET – The Extra Terrestrial (13 July), The Goonies (20 July), Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (27 July) and Captain Marvel (3 August).”

Councillor Derek Pretty, Cabinet Member for Economy on Eastleigh Borough Council, which operates The Point said:

“The Summer Social is growing in popularity and its diverse range of entertainment and activities are attracting more people into the town centre and boosting our evening economy in particular.”

The Point Summer Social 2019 offers six weeks of fun outdoor events, including live music, family events and wellbeing yoga.

Each screening costs £10 or you can pay for all six screenings for £50. The pop up bar opens from 6pm while the screenings begin at nine.

With an exciting programme of shows this summer, going the pictures at The Point won’t be like watching paint dry.
