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

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

Cinema Hire in Surrey

If you can’t find the right option you could always think about hiring an outdoor cinema set up for a garden party or to use at a venue you’ve hired. Here are some of our favourite local suppliers:

I hope that helps you find an event or two near you to enjoy a fantastic outdoor cinema experience over the summer. Just make sure you click through and book tickets well in advance.
