Article image A free outdoor cinema in Bath will be screening the family favourite 101 Dalmatians.

Taking place on Friday 27 July at Bath Riverside, fans of the film, which features Glenn Close, are being invited to pop along where they will be able to set up a picnic, sit back and enjoy the movie.

Starting at 7.30pm, those interested can make their way to ‘The Scoop’, which is just off Victoria Bridge Road and next to the iconic Victoria Bridge that spans the River Avon.

Leigh Pitts, marketing manager at Crest Nicholson said: “When work started to regenerate the derelict Stothert & Pitt Engineer and Founders, part of the vision was to include acres of public space which could be used for events just like this, so it’s great that we’re making the most of what is the city’s newest outdoor performance area.

“A lot has happened since Crest Nicholson started work here and it’s a brilliant example of how the local community is able to make the most of a space that only a few years ago was really run down. There’s no way we could have held any performances here before and we’re delighted to be able to set this up for people to enjoy.

“Set in the fabulous ‘scoop’ area, this amphitheatre-style setting provides the perfect location for an open air cinema. 

“One of our designated charities this year is the Bath Cats & Dogs Home so it seems appropriate to show 101 Dalmatians. There will be food and drink available with any voluntary contributions being given to the charity. 

“We hope the weather will shine down on us and that lots of people come along and enjoy the film. It really is fantastic family film and it’ll be great to see plenty of mums, dads and kids here on the day.”

Those interested can arrive from 6pm, Friday 27 July 2018 on Victoria Bridge Road. Back
