Moonlight Flicks is on every Tuesday – Saturday evening, plus August Bank Holiday Sunday with film times changing over the course of the summer. This is because the film will start once the sun goes down, ensuring it is dark enough for everyone to see the screen.

The start times on the schedule and on your ticket is the earliest possible time the film will start – the latest will be 20 minutes later. Film times vary – check the individual film pages for details.

The gates to the Roman Gardens will open 45 minutes before the scheduled start time.

So if your ticket says 9pm, the gates will open at 8.15pm, and the film will start between 9 – 9.20pm, depending on visibility. 


Being outside, Moonlight Flicks can be affected by the weather. Our advice is to come as prepared as possible: warm jumpers and raincoats.

If there’s some light drizzle which is forecast to pass, we will proceed, but torrential or stormy weather may mean we have to cancel the screening. If we do that, your tickets will be exchanged or refunded. Refunds will only be offered in the event that the screening is cancelled. 

It’s Britain, and even a miserable day can turn into a balmy evening, so we will be keeping an eagle eye on the weather and posting updates on each day, so make sure to pop back before your visit.
