TWO of last year’s most popular movies will be shown on a big open-air screen at Bolton Abbey this summer.

The Luna Cinema, which specialises in putting on outdoor movie events, will show Bohemian Rhapsody on Wednesday, August 21.

That will be followed on Thursday, August 22, with a screening of Mary Poppins Returns.

Bohemian Rhapsody tells the story of the legendary rock band Queen and lead singer Freddie Mercury, from the band’s formation up to their legendary performance at Live Aid in 1985.

It won a string of awards including an Academy Award for Best Actor for Rami Malek, who played Freddie Mercury.

Mary Poppins Returns, meanwhile, shows what happens when the magical nanny comes back, decades after her original visit, to help the Banks siblings and Michael’s children through a tough time.

Packed with catchy songs, it stars Emily Blunt

Both films will be shown at 8.15pm with the doors opening at 6.45pm.

The Luna Bar with Estrella will be on site on both nights and serving a full selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks including Estrella beer, Prosecco, wines, spirits and soft drinks.

Hot drinks will also be available at the bar, while food will be available from gourmet partners on-site.

Referring to Bolton Abbey’s dramatic setting - the screen will be located beside the Abbey - a spokesman for The Luna Cinema said: “Nestled in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, this majestic location with the ruined priory will provide the ultimate backdrop for a fantastic night of cinema under the stars.”

The company is putting on more than 175 outdoor screenings around the country (between May and September) this year, with many taking place at major historic sites.

As well as Bolton Abbey, screenings are being held at the likes of Warwick Castle, Kensington Palace, Chatsworth House, the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and Westminster Abbey and Castle Howard.

Founder of The Luna Cinema, George Wood, said: “We are hugely excited to be announcing our 2019 season, our biggest year of open-air cinema yet.

“With the incredible number of great films released in the last 12 months it’s shaping up to be a really special one.

“Following last year’s phenomenal outdoor success with The Greatest Showman we were hoping for a good crop of musical films and in A Star Is Born, Mary Poppins Returns, Bohemian Rhapsody and Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again, we got exactly that!

“We look forward to expanding our children’s outdoor cinema brand Luna Kids Cinema this summer, to visiting some incredible new venues far and wide, from Yorkshire to Greenwich, and to welcoming film fans from across the country for a night of cinema under the stars!”
