Essex Outdoor Cinema hosts a very special weekend of Outdoor Cinema at Brightlingsea Lido. Join us for Mamma Mia and Bohemian Rhapsody, hire a deckchair, grab a hot dog, nachos a drink or an ice cream and get yourself down to the Lido! This is the first Outdoor cinema at the lido now run as a Charity for the Brightlingsea Community..  Your support is very much appreciated..

Saturday nights screening is Bohemian Rhapsody FILM RATING 12a.

Bring a blanket, bring a picnic, bring your friends and join us for a magical evening under the stars. Join us for an evening of cinema and wonderful pre-show entertainment.

Gates open at 7pm and we will be opening the night with music and entertainment to get you all in the mood for the film which we aim to start at approximately 8.45pm, make sure you arrive early to nab the best spot! Please bear with us if we do need to start a little late, as we are reliant on light conditions being right.

Food & Drink

Food and drink can be purchased on site at the Lido Cafe or Bar. Please Note : Glass is not permitted on site and the pool will be closed.

Other Stuff..

We have booked a nice warm evening, but when the sun does go down it can get chilly, so please do dress accordingly (Layers are a must!).
Please also feel free to bring chairs if you don't fancy sitting on picnic blankets. Or Deckchairs are available to hire (book in advance to guarantee availability). If it does rain, the event still goes ahead, we'd definitely recommend chairs instead of blankets.

And Finally

We are only able to stage these events with the help and understanding of the numerous neighbours that we have around our venues, with this in mind please be considerate when leaving the site, please leave the site as tidy as you find it.

Please keep Essex tidy and bag your rubbish before you leave - We'll do the rest!

This night of film and entertainment is brought to you by Essex Outdoor Cinema.

    Screen and sound were great and the location was cool. Just an issue with a few drunk people

    Well organised night. Enjoyable despite the rain...spoilt slightly by people using large umbrellas with no consideration for those behind them! Would definitely go again.
