Outdoor Cinema in Hampshire 2023

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 Hampshire to give you some inspiration for a day or night out, relaxing and watching a movie with some of your favourite people.

Drive In Cinema in Hampshire

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 Hampshire this summer but if any come along I’ll make sure I update this post with details.
