Spreading half-term happiness with outdoor cinema

We’re hoping to raise some half-term happiness by staging an open air cinema over three days in the school holidays.

The St Michaels neighbourhood police team in Coventry will be showing six family-friendly films in Hillfields Village Square between Tuesday 27 to Thursday 29 October.

Many families in Hillfields live in flats with no gardens and during lockdown we’re conscious it was really hard to keep youngsters entertained inside four walls.

We’re living with tighter CoVID-19 restrictions again but at present it’s fine for people in Coventry to meet outdoors in groups of no more than six.

Our outdoor cinema is 100 per cent CoVID compliant. Each showing will be restricted to a maximum of 90 people, sat in pre-booked seats in blocks of four or six, with two metres between seating rows.

All seating will be sanitised between showings on each day.

Every child that attends will receive a goodie bag with crime prevention advice in and some snacks to eat whilst watching the cinema.

So if you fancy watching The Greatest Showman, Pixar’s Toy Story 2 and Inside Out, Mighty Ducks, Ralph Wrecks the Internet or Charlie & the Chocolate Factory then drop us a line.

To book tickets please contact PCSO Adam Bettison at a.bettison@west-midlands.pnn.police.uk or text to 07391 019157.
