Open Air Cinema - GREASE

Saturday 17 June 2017 8.15pm to 11.30pm Mapperley Library £10.50 (concessionary: £8.50 Child, Family Ticket £35, extra PopCorn Packages from £2.50)

Sunset Cinema Club brings people together to watch a great film, as the sun sets in a cool, hidden or creative outdoor space.

'The Screen on the Green' is a Sunset summer series which crackles to life on the (lovely) old Haywood Road Bowling Green. Peep above the hedge rows which line the site in Mapperley, and you'll find us there from time to time, kicking back, as the summer rolls on.

At the end of the 'Great Mapperley Get Together', we gather at sunset to get our summer vibes on with Grease on Sat 17th June. If you like the idea of reliving a great film in flip flops, across a picnic blanket and nibbling on something yummy, then bowl up to join us. Tickets are strictly limited to 200 (shhhh), and MUST be bought in advance.

Unlikely to be advertised widely, and with limited capacity in a 'hidden' venue, events tend to sell out quickly. Tickets cost £10.50 per adult, £8.50 per young person (aged 0-15yrs), and £35 per family of four (with 2 young people aged 0-15yrs). If you can afford a little more, we encourage our 'crowd funder' Popcorn Package: for an extra £3-4 you'll enjoy a tasty treat (mmmm), first access to next event tickets (before public sale - yey!) and a warm glow (knowing you've helped purchase equipment to help future events in our community in flexible, under-used spaces).

About the Venue
The Screen on the Green aims to make good new use of the old Haywood Road Bowling Green in the few months before Gedling Borough Council applies for planning permission to redevelop it into housing. The space is the only green space in Porchester Gardens; there is currently a campaign to save it. The Screen on the Green demonstrates just one of many creative ways that this lovely, previously hidden and underused space could be bought back to life for people across a community to enjoy. Look beyond the hedge rows which edge Haywood Road in Mapperley, and you will see the beautiful Green: it's a large, flat and secure open space adjoining the Haywood Road Community Centre (recently saved from sale by the campaign group) - with all the amenities to serve as a community green space for generations to come.
