Outdoor Cinema 2022

02 September - 04 September 2022

The ultimate cinema event returns to the RAF Museum Midlands this September. In partnership with “Outdoor Cinema” we are bringing a wide range of films to the big screen for all the family, including the greatest sing-a-longs, new releases and nostalgic classics.

Enjoy the films on a huge LED screen surrounded by iconic aircraft including the Hercules and VC-10.  A wide-range of delicious food and drink stalls are also on site providing the perfect accompaniment to the event.

You can also arrive early to our evening screenings and enjoy exclusive late night access to the museum’s hangar 1 where you can see our newest acquisition the Chinook Bravo November.

What to bring?

As this is an outdoor event taking place on a large grassed area we encourage you to bring  picnic chairs and blankets as you settle into your spot for the film. So, feel free to curate your very own comfy viewing spot and ensure to arrive early to get the best place!

We also encourage you to bring warm clothing, extra layers, appropriate footwear depending on the weather for that day.

Please do not bring any marquees, tents or gazebos as these may obstruct the view for other visitors.

Cinema Snacks

Along side the on-site catering please, feel free to bring your own drinks and snacks but all drinks must be in plastic bottles or cans and no BBQ’s are permitted.
