Worthing’s seafront is going from strength to strength, as an open-air cinema is due to arrive for the summer.

Denton Gardens will be spectacularly transformed into the town’s first-ever alfresco cinema with a giant LED high-definition screen showing three movies a day  – from Jaws to The Jungle Book, Grease to The Greatest Showman – between August 10th and 12th.

Worthing Borough Council’s Place and Economy Manager Fiona Burn said:

“We’re really excited about putting these shows on for the first time in Worthing. We hope that everyone will find at least one film they like and there’s nothing better then watching them on a big screen under a summer sky.”

Day-time screenings from 2pm are free and include family favourites such as Horton Hears a Who, Jungle Book (1967), Grease, Top Gun and Titanic. There’s plenty of room for everyone, with capacity of up to 499 people.

As the sun sets movie lovers will be able to settle in and enjoy classics such as Jaws (Sunday 12th) , sing – along with the soundtrack of the year from The Greatest Showman (Friday 10th) and get stuck into Time Warp classic The Rocky Horror Show (Saturday 11th). Tickets for the evening films are £7.50 and can be purchased via Worthing Theatres Box Office or online at www.worthingtheatres.co.uk.

The cinema forms part of a wider programme of projects by Worthing Borough Council designed to stimulate the town centre’s visitor and night-time economies and promote Worthing as a visitor destination.
