Barby Moorings marina held the second of three outdoor movie nights on Saturday 28 August with the feel-good classic Grease, originally released way back in 1978; the next outdoor cinema night is September 25 with Mama Mia here we go again

The bankside of the marina was transformed into a free open-air cinema for customers and their guests, giving a fun night to moorers after the Covid lockdown. Over 40 people attended the first two events. The open-air cinema nights are great fun, family-friendly, and most importantly, safe to attend. The next showing is on September 25, with “Mama Mia here we go again”.

The large grass bank adjacent to the workshop at Barby Moorings marina is transformed into an open-air cinema for the events. The 8.3m screen is attached to the workshop wall and the film is projected from the latest digital cinema projector, conveniently mounted in a van at the back of the grass bank. There is a marquee supplying all the traditional cinema food, popcorn, hot dogs, nachos, etc.

Penny and Tony of Barby Moorings: “With the lifting of Covid restrictions we wanted to do something to re-build the strong community spirit we have at Barby Moorings. Open air cinema fits the bill perfectly, plenty of fresh air with the opportunity to catch up with friends, good cinema style food and of course, a feelgood film on the big screen.”
