Nottingham will welcome Batman back to Wollaton Hall this weekend for the opening of its annual outdoor cinema experience. 

The hall will host a total of five films over three days, including a special screening of popular superhero movie The Dark Knight on Friday (May 28). 

The giant LED screen will be positioned directly opposite the Hall, where actors including Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine and Gary Oldman filmed the movie’s sequel The Dark Knight Rises, back in 2011. Wollaton Hall played the part of Wayne Manor. 

Nottingham Batman fan, Matthew Timms, 22, is planning to be there to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the sequel’s filming. 

He said: “I’m really excited – I love open-air cinema. Watching alongside other people will be great as being in lockdown for the past 15 months has been difficult. 

“I’m looking forward to enjoying the outdoors while watching one of the best films of all time!” 

With this week’s weather forecast predicted to be warm and dry, organisers are encouraging people to bring picnics, camping chairs and blankets to enjoy the evening. 

Hot food and a fully-stocked bar will also be available on site. 

Tia Hill, a 20-year-old Fashion Marketing student from Nottingham Trent University, was at the open-air cinema event back in 2018. 

She said: “I had such a lovely time at Wollaton and would definitely go again. 

“It was cool to sit with friends and enjoy a movie outdoors, rather than sitting in the audience of a normal cinema.” 

Tickets for this year’s event are available to book through the Adventure Cinema website, with prices starting at £14.50. 

VIP tickets are also available to purchase which include a luxury deck chair located in a prime position. 

Organisers have reassured visitors that the event will be laid out in a socially distanced format, following government guidelines.
