Catch a film under the stars at Cowley Manor's open-air cinema screenings, hosted by The Alfresco Film Company, this summer 2024.

Stunning Cotswold hotel, Cowley Manor, provides the backdrop for a programme of outdoor cinema from The Alfresco Film Company this summer, transforming its top lawn into an open-air movie theatre.

With fantastic films showing on a huge outdoor screen overlooking its gorgeous lake and grounds, Cowley Manor kicks off its alfresco movie nights with 80s favourite, ET the Extra-Terrestrial landing on Saturday 22 June 2024.

Loveably foppish Hugh Grant stars in Four Weddings and a Funeral, for a nostalgic evening of love and laughter on Thursday 25 July 2024.

Next up, a fun mid-week activity for families during the summer holidays, Wonka hits the Cowley Manor big screen on Wednesday 14 August 2024. See Timothée Chalamet star as the famous chocolatier in this musical fantasy, fresh from the box office.

Then it's all eyes on Indiana Jones for Raiders of the Lost Ark, bringing Cowley's open-air cinema to a close on Thursday 12 September 2024.

You can count on Cowley Manor for cinema snacks, too, with hot food, treats and alcoholic, soft and hot drinks available to order from the hotel bar and restaurant. 

Choose premium deckchair seats for a position close to the screen or opt to bring your own seat — with low-backed camping chairs, picnic rugs and deckchairs all permitted.
