Big screen is back with Movie magic outdoors atfor two family-fun box office hits.
On Saturday and Sunday, August 10 and 11, the big cinema screen will be outside M&S to show the two films – Dumbo and Mary Poppins Returns – at 11am and 2:30pm. The running order will alternate on the following day. Free to watch, local film enthusiasts can also indulge in free popcorn from a pop-up vendor during the showings.
Arnold Catterall, centre manager at Old George Mall, said: “The Mall has always had a fantastic response when it has held free cinema days in the past and we’re expecting it to be incredibly popular again.
“We have two great films on show and, fingers crossed, we’ll get the great weather to go with it. It’s a perfect opportunity to get the whole family together and do something fun and a little bit different during the school holidays.”
As has been the case with previous Cinemania events, collection buckets will also be situated around the outdoor big screen to take in donations for.
Since launching its cinema initiative, Old George Mall and its local community has raised more than £2,500 for the charity – helping it hit its MRI Scanner campaign target.
