Big Screen is back!

As part of the Big Events – a series of community events put on by Watford Borough Council – Watford’s outdoor cinema, the Big Screen, is back by popular demand.

Published: Friday, 17th July 2015

Last year, the outdoor screen attracted hundreds to The Parade by the pond and this time it’s 30% bigger and the sound is even better. Bring a blanket and a picnic or pick up some hot dogs and ice cream there.

From Thursday 20 August to Sunday 23 August eight films will be shown. For the Saturday we’re giving you the chance to vote for which film you want to see on the Big Screen at 5.30pm. You can choose between four very different but classic films:

The People’s Choice

  • Dirty Dancing (1987) (12)
