East of England Arena welcomes the return of open-air cinema

The East of England Arena and Events Centre is looking forward to the first open-air cinema event of the year that isn’t a ‘drive-in’ - The Great Outdoor Cinema will be coming to the venue on 6 - 8 August 2021, showing three films on a giant projection screen in the open air, and where previously filmgoers have been confined to their cars due to Covid restrictions, they will now be able to spread out on beanbags, deckchairs and picnic blankets.

Pamela Newbould, senior events manager, East of England Arena, said, “It’s a pleasure to welcome Drive-In Cinema, the organiser of this event, back to the venue after the success of the drive-in event in April, and I know that local filmgoers will be very pleased that now they can enjoy the experience in a more sociable setting. We are still planning all our events in line with Step 3 guidelines on social distancing and hygiene, to avoid problems arising from further delays to the lifting of restrictions.”
