Outdoor Cinema in Berkshire 2024

One of our favourite things to do in the summer is go to an outdoor cinema. Sitting on a deckchair, beanbag or picnic rug and enjoying a movie in the great outdoors is such an experience and something that you can do as a couple, with friends or as a family.

I thought it would be nice to put together all the outdoor cinema options across Berkshire to give you some inspiration for a day or night out, relaxing and watching a movie with some of your favourite people.

Dinton Pastures usually have a great outdoor cinema offering but don’t seem to be holding any cinema events this year. Luna Cinema and Silent Summer Screenings also usually have dates across Berkshire over the spring and summer but haven’t released dates for this year yet.

Although there were a lot of drive in cinema options available during the pandemic, the majority seem to have ceased since restrictions eased. I can’t find any drive in cinemas in Berkshire this summer but if any come along I’ll make sure I update this post with details.
