Nine feature films will be shown on a big screen in the centre of Harrogate as part of the summer festival.

Over the first weekend of July, films for all ages will be shown on Montpellier as Harrogate International Festivals brings back its popular outdoor cinema.

On Saturday, July 7, the films begin with Cars 2 at noon, followed by Rio at 3.30pm, Singin’ in the Rain –which marks its diamond anniversary this year – at 5pm, Grease at 6.45pm and concluding with Chicago, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, at 8.30pm.

The following day, Sunday, July 8, begins with a screening of the hit film The Muppets, only released in cinemas last year, at noon. The day is dedicated to the best of British film-making, with Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit at 4.30pm, The Italian Job at 6pm, and The King’s Speech at 7.40pm.

For those more interested in sport than films, the screen will also be showing both finals live from Wimbledon over the weekend: the women’s on Saturday at 2pm and the men’s on Sunday at 2pm.

The timings are subject to change if the matches overrun.
