The Dukes cinema is returning to Williamson Park with a season of outdoor film screenings.

The Dukes cinema is returning to Williamson Park with a season of outdoor film screenings.

The magic of cinema can be experienced in the atmospheric Dell from today (Thursday) to Saturday at 8.30pm.

This special series of screenings follows the Lancaster cinema’s successful debut in the park three years ago.

Film fans should be prepared to be scared when It Follows (15) is screened tonight.

For 19-year-old Jay, autumn should be about school, boys and weekends out at the lake. But after spending the night with her boyfriend, she finds herself plagued by strange visions and the inescapable sense that someone or something, is following her.

Another haunting classic – and a landmark film of silent cinema – Nosferatu (PG) is an iconic take on the story of Dracula.

The film, to be screened on Friday will be accompanied by a live score, composed and performed by Lancaster-based duo Lee 
Affen and Ric Smithson.

The season concludes on Saturday with Wes Anderson’s award winning film, The Grand Budapest Hotel (15). Ralph Fiennes stars as a legendary concierge who, along with his new lobby boy, finds himself on the run after a favoured guest bequeaths him a priceless painting.

The Dukes outdoor screenings are supported by Film Hub North West Central.

Tickets for each film are priced £10/£9 concessions (a £1 per transaction fee applies to online bookings). To book call 01524 598500 or visit www.dukes-lancaster.org
