Southwold Outdoor Cinema - Emma

Southwold’s Outdoor Cinema is back by popular demand, screening some of the most highly acclaimed films this summer.

"Emma offers a stunningly crafted and uproarious adaptation of Austen’s novel, with gorgeous costumes and delightfully charming performances." 

Regency England, Emma Woodhouse – handsome, clever and rich – is a committed matchmaker, guiding the love-life of lower-classed student Harriet Smith away from a friendly farmer to primping vicar Mr Eaton. In the meantime, she can’t help but argue with neighbour George Knightley.

Hosted within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, audiences will experience the stunning sunset and local hospitality before the movie begins. All films are shown on the UK’s largest 42ft screen, and audiences listen via state-of-the-art noise-canceling headphones while seated in their own socially distanced pitches.

 With a film for everyone to enjoy, from action and drama to romance and rock'n'roll to musical and comedy, Southwold's Outdoor Cinema is the best ‘socially distanced’ way to bring cinema back to Suffolk!

 Proceeds from the events will be donated to Comic Relief.
