The Powell-Cotton Museum in collaboration with The Roaming Cinema Company is delighted to invite you to a summer season of open-air movie screenings. Join us on the beautiful lawns in Quex Garden situated behind Quex House, and take in great family films on our giant 220” screen.

You are free to bring along your own picnic blankets or camping chairs, or why not treat your movie stars and upgrade to our VIP package which includes a comfy deckchair and box of delicious, sweet popcorn!

All of our movie events have fun as a priority, so dress-up and sing-a-long are always encouraged!

We aim to make our events as accessible as possible. All screenings will be subtitled, wheelchair-friendly and relaxed. If there is anything we can do to assist you with your visit, please get in touch.
