Why does the film start so late?
Our giant screen is most visible in the dark, so we start our film showings at sunset.

1 hour 28 mins
What is the film’s certificate?
Can you bring your own blankets and chairs?
Yes as we will be sat on grass, we recommend that you bring blankets and camping chairs.
Will there be popcorn and ice cream?
Yes, of course!
Can you bring food and drink?
No, but there will be hot food, drink and popcorn at the event.
Do young children have to have a ticket?
Children under-2 can come in for free.
Will there be other things going on?
Yes, before the film starts we will have food, bar and music.
What if the weather is bad?
If it rains the event will go ahead. We are only not be able to use the screen if there are high winds (winds over 25 knots.) Obviously we hope for a nice dry night but it is worth being prepared for the Great British weather.
Is there car parking?
There is no official stadium car park, but there is parking all around the ground. The closest is a large NCP on Portman Road (right by the away end), which usually has spaces. There’s also a large car park on West End Road (5 minutes’ walk away) and at the railway station (less than 10 minutes). The town centre is less than 10 minutes’ walk, and has numerous car parks, as you’d expect. Being a town centre ground, most streets are controlled (residents only) parking, so free on-road parking tends to be at least a 20-minute walk away. As usual, the car parks nearest the ground are a bit slow to clear after the movie – for a quicker exit, use the railway station car park, and exit left out of the station onto Burrell Road / Ranelagh Road (B1075), then (after about a mile) left onto the A1214.
