Brighton Big Screen Stuart Butcher

Love films but hate being stuck inside when the weather is beautiful? We know how you feel.

Luckily, this summer, there are hundreds of pop-up cinemas cropping up all over the country.

From Leeds to London to Cornwall, there are plenty of places to watch your favourite classic on the big screen - whether it's in a Medieval monastery or a Grease-style drive in.

So, grab yourself a blanket and a picnic, sit back and pick which of these amazing outdoor cinemas you want to visit this season...

Drive In Ally Pally

Make like Grease and head over to Alexandra Palace in London for a drive-in movie screening.

Authentic American style drive-ins are hard to find these days, but this popular outdoor film club is back this month.

Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs and American Psycho are among the classic flicks on offer. There's even a Grease sing-along (don't worry, we won't judge!)

Of course, it wouldn't be an American event without a huge number of food options.

From candy and hot dogs to popcorn and street food, it's delivered straight to your car by guys and gals on skates. Sounds pretty ideal to us.

Sneaky Experience Kirkstall Abbey

Harry Potter fans will be pleased to hear that Sneaky Experience are holding not one, but two nights of Harry Potter films at the spooky Kirkstall Abbey in Leeds.

Set in the grounds of the 12th century monastry, it's an eerie yet beautiful backdrop to re-watch the brilliant Harry Potter films. There will even be wizards, goblins and grim gatekeepers wandering the grounds.

We suggest you get there before sunset and grab yourself a snack from the Sweet Trolley lady.

Nomad Cinema Brompton Cemetery

We really like the sound of the Nomad Cinema. It's a roaming cinema club that sets up pop-up cinema events around London.

Our favourite venue so far? Brompton Cemetery. Yes, we know. It's a bit creepy, but where better to watch The Dark Knight or The Matrix than a Victorian burial ground?

If cemeteries don’t take your fancy, check out the films being shown at the Hyde Park Lido, Queen's Park and the Hoxton Hotel instead from April to June.

Picnic Cinema Castle

Picnic? Yes. Film? Yes again. Castle? Absolutely.

Combine all three with the Picnic Cinema - they are holding a one-off movie night at Scarborough Castle with The Hunger Games showing on Friday 1 May.

Not only is this a unique way to watch a film, but it's run by Eden Arts who are all about enabling rural communities to put on their own cinema screenings.

It's a magnificent location atop of the cliffs overlooking the sea, a perfect spot to spend a summer's evening.

Brighton Big Screen Stuart Butcher

We can’t get enough of the beach during the summer. Any chance to stay after dark sounds good to us.

Brighton’s Big Screen is back this year after a successful summer of films in 2014. The beachfront cinema shows daily blockbusters and sporting events throughout the late summer months.

Oh and we forgot to say that the films shown are all free, which makes it a no brainer.

The organisers are keeping the film schedule closely under wraps, but the screen will definitely be up from Monday 17 August at the beach alongside Madeira Drive.

So keep your eyes peeled!

Minack Theatre

When it’s come to outdoor entertainment, we couldn’t not mention the Minack Theatre in Cornwall. It has to be one of the most amazing venues to watch anything and everything in.

They mainly put on live performances rather than films, but we can’t recommend this place highly enough.

Carved into the granite cliffs of Porthcurno, the famous famous open air theatre has spectacular views out to sea.

It honestly doesn’t matter what you go, you’ll struggle to keep your focus on the performance with a view like that.

The seating is pretty rustic, but cushions are provided to add a little extra comfort. It is a must for anyone who simply wants to enjoy an unrivalled night of entertainment.
