Film lovers will get the chance to enjoy some of their favourite films whilst basking in the promised Birmingham sunshine at Brindleyplace’s first outdoor film festival.
Organised in partnership with Cineworld on Broad Street, the two week film festival will take place in Central Square at Brindleyplace from August 13 to 28, and will be open to employees of businesses based at Brindleyplace, along with the general public.
Boasting a theme of ‘childhood favourites’, the Brindleyplace Film Festival will showcase 20 films (all certificate PG or below) with evening films being screened at 6pm from Monday to Friday. There will be two showings, one at 11am and the other at 2pm, on Saturday and Sunday.
Kate Fittall, destination marketing manager, GVA, said: “This is the first time that visitors, tenants and the general public in Birmingham will be able to come together at Brindleyplace to enjoy some brilliant films in the open air.
“Being able to watch a film outdoors has an old-school, romantic and rather quirky appeal about it.
"Hosting our very own open-air film festival is something that we have wanted to do at Brindleyplace for a long while and it is incredibly exciting that, thanks to the support from our tenants, we are able to make it happen this year.
“We have had a huge number of film suggestions from our tenants at Brindleyplace and we are now compiling the shortlist of films which we feel will help to bring back only the best childhood memories.
“Even though we haven’t had the warmest summer to shout about, I hope everyone pops along to the film festival come rain or shine – just bring a brolly! Fingers crossed we can make this an annual event in Birmingham and something which draws more and more people to the city.”
