Lost Lands Cinema – who held the highly successful open-air screening of “Jaws” on the roof of the Fig Tree restaurant last summer – is returning to the venue to exhibit a further series of films this summer.
In view of the forthcoming closure of the Penarth Pier Pavilion Cinema as from March 6th onwards, the Lost Lands movie-shows at the Fig Tree will provide a welcome fillip to an otherwise somewhat depleted entertainment scene on the Esplanade in 2017.
Last year Lost Lands’s after-dark cinema show enjoyed a warm, dry summer evening on the Esplanade which attracted dozens of film-goers to see Jaws – and at the same time keep a sharp look out at the calm seas offshore.
This year Lost Lands outdoor cinema will be held above the Fig Tree on 4 weekends commencing on the 12th and 13th of May.
The firm’s advertising says “When it comes to watching a film at the cinema why visit the docile traditional multi screens with their sticky carpets? Come along and spend a summer’s evening up on the roof with a garden bar” .
The management says “It’s as much about enjoying the environment and atmosphere as it is about the movies being screened”.
