Southwold Open Air Cinema – Opening Night Saturday 22nd May 2021

Due to uncertainty caused by the pandemic it was quite a last minute affair and numbers and party sizes were restricted due to social distancing regulations, but despite that the events were a great success.

Because of this My Southwold are delighted to have scheduled a 2021 summer season of outdoor film starting on Saturday 22nd May with the classic rom-com, Bridget Jones’s Diary. If you’re more of a traditional film goer who prefers indoor cinema don’t worry, the film is showing at Southwold Arts Centre too.
