Jurassic Park is an absolute classic, in my opinion one of the greatest films ever made, and I must have seen it a million times. But do you know where I’ve never seen it? In a pimped out cave, adding new layers of atmosphere to an already incredible film.
Luckily for me, and you, there’s now the opportunity to watch Jurassic Park - as well as some other great films - in a cave, thanks to The Village Screen, which is returning to the Peak Cavern cave later this summer.
If - for some bizarre reason - Jurassic Park isn’t your cup of tea then fear not, they’re also showing The Goonies, Pulp Fiction and A Star Is Born, over one weekend at the end of August/start of September.
There’ll be live music before each screening alongside a selection of street food and the Village Screen bar, as well as cinema staples like popcorn and ice cream.
It’s not the first time Village Screen have taken over an unusual venue like this, previously they’ve hosted events in Manchester, Sheffield and the Peaks, screening cinematic classics in Victoria Baths and Gorton Monastery among other locations.
This will be their third year at the Peak Cavern. As well as being open daily for guided tours, the cave in Castleton - also known as ‘The Devil’s Arse’ - is a popular venue for concerts and film-showings.
