Cowley Manor near Cheltenham is hosting three outdoor cinema screenings under the stars from The Alfresco Film Company this summer 2023.

Cowley Manor, just outside Cheltenham, provides a stunning backdrop to a series of outdoor cinema screenings from The Alfresco Film Company — with cult classic Labyrinth and 2022 blockbusters Top Gun: Maverick and Elvis on the big screen this summer 2023. 

As well as enjoying movies under the stars overlooking the lake in Cowley’s gorgeous grounds, moviegoers can tuck in to freshly-made gourmet burgers, popcorn, retro sweets and drinks, with a licensed bar serving alcoholic drinks, too.

Providing fantastical fun for all the family, Jim Henson's 1980s classic, Labyrinth, leads the audience into a world of dark magic for an epic adventure starring David Bowie, Jennifer Connelly and a whole host of puppets!

Top Gun: Maverick screening at Cowley Manor

Naval pilot, Pete 'Maverick' Mitchell is back in the cockpit in the 2022 smash hit Top Gun: Maverick, where he has to train an elite team of graduates — including the son of his former wingman, Goose. Overcoming scepticism from his students and the mistakes of his past, he manages to pull off the impossible in this high-octane thrill ride, which movie fans won't want to miss seeing on the big screen. 

Elvis screening at Cowley Manor

Austin Butler gives the performance of a lifetime as he steps into the blue suede shoes of Elvis Presley for Baz Lurhmann's glittering biopic, Elvis. Documenting the King of Rock 'n' Roll's astronomical rise to fame and astonishing career, accompanied by a mind-blowing soundtrack, this Oscar-nominated sensation is not to be missed. 

Premium ticketholders can reserve deckchairs for the best seats in the house and an extra special experience, while those with standard tickets should bring their own low-backed chair, beanbag or picnic blanket to sit on.
