One of the most unique outdoor cinema experiences is returning to Cheshire countryside for a one-off screening of a classic film favourite.

The 400-acre Alderley Park is known for being a place where world-leading science, innovation, and stylish living come all come together, but on 3 September, it will be turned into a cinema under the stars and will be showing a very-special screening of the 80s cult classic film, Back to The Future.

Cinema Under the Stars – in partnership with Alfresco Film Company – will give film fans the chance to enjoy a night of nostalgia with a timeless movie classic in a unique setting as the sun goes down.

Back to The Future was highest-grossing film of 1985 and a cultural phenomenon, and you can expect to travel back in time as you follow the adventures of Marty McFly on what promises to be an entertaining as the iconic sci-fi comedy is projected onto a huge 20ft outdoor screen.

There will be an option to purchase a premium ticket including a deck chair, but you can also bring your own blankets and chairs, and warmer layers are also advised for when the temperature drops.


Food and drink will be available to purchase on the night too, but you can also take your own snacks and refreshments too.

Speaking ahead of the return of Cinema Under the Stars, Sam Darby – Head of Development at Bruntwood SciTech – said: “We are delighted that Cinema Under the Stars is returning to Alderley Park as it’s the perfect opportunity to bring our customers, residents, and the wider Cheshire community together to enjoy one of the most beloved films of all time in the beautiful surroundings of the Park.”
