Three classic movies from 1991 are topping the bill at Thorpe Hall Hospice’s inaugural open air cinema to celebrate the hospice’s 25th anniversary.

The weekend of silver screen entertainment, on September 16 and 17, is being staged as part of the celebrations marking Sue Ryder’s 25 years providing palliative and end of life care across the region.

Money raised throughout the weekend will help pay for care at the hospice.

A giant cinema screen will be put up in the listed gardens of Thorpe Hall Hospice, in Longthorpe, Peterborough. Visitors will be invited to bring picnics and deckchairs – with refreshments also on sale during the screenings.

Friday night is for the family with Disney favourite Beauty and the Beast showing. On Saturday it’s the turn of the adults with a double bill of Terminator 2 and The Silence of the Lambs.

Gates will open on both evenings at 6.45pm with screenings beginning at 7.30pm. Tickets are available now, from the hospice or by calling 01733 225999 for a minimum donation of £10 per person per evening. There will be some available on the gate.

Organiser Jake Atkinson said: “We’ve been celebrating our 25th anniversary throughout this year and are delighted to be able to show these three movies from the same vintage as our hospice.

“Our gardens are beautiful and this is the perfect way to use the wonderful space we have here.”
