Whilst it is rare to find a drive thru cinema in the UK (boo!), we do have some outdoor screens this month in Bristol.
Firstly, theres the giant screen being constructed in Queens Square just in time to show the World Cup games. As someone who doesn’t really care about football, this one just annoys me more than anything, mostly because it seems I’ll have to find a new way home!
Alternatively, a few minutes walk away, Cabot Circus have put up their own big screen in Quakers Friars, with Wii challenges in the day (sounds epic, bigger than lifesized Wii Sports?) and films in the evening.
So far, we’ve missed The Devil Wears Prada and Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Wererabbit but I’m hoping to see Coco Before Chanel (on the 10th), Confessions of a Shopaholic (11th) and The September Issue (16th)
Of course, what sort of event in Bristol would it be without more Aardman creations? Each weekend, the shorter episodes of Wallace and Gromit are being shown, and then Dr Who will be broadcast. Giant Matt Smith doesn’t hold as much appeal as giant David Tennant, I’ll admit, but it still sounds ace.
Towards the end of the month, Wimbledon will be shown, but if that’s not to your tastes, there’s a green area with giant Jenga to play!
