Outdoor Cinema in Hampshire 2024

*This article is in the process of being updated – many attractions haven’t announced their outdoor cinema dates and times yet so I’ve kept last year’s events on for some attractions until I can update them.

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.

  1. We went to our first outdoor cinema in 2013 in Gran Canaria on holiday. We absolutely loved the experience; it felt amazing to sit outside and watch a film in the open! The outdoors cinemas in Hampshire looks fab I cannot believe you have so many of them!
