Premium Seats: if you have booked a Premium Deckchair Seat, these will be located at the front of the screening area. These are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis (you are guaranteed a seat, so don’t worry, and we’ll make sure that you can sit with friends if you’ve booked these seats separately from each other). Please take your seat no later than 15 minutes before the start of the film.
General Entry Seats: please remember to bring your own low-backed camping chair, deckchair or picnic blanket to the screening. Picnic blankets will be located near the front, with camping chairs and deckchairs behind, so that everyone gets a good view. Guests arriving with high-backed chairs may be asked to sit at the sides or rear. Please arrive no later than 15 minutes before the film begins.

Please look out for this on the day of the screening if the weather is looking dodgy!
