Star Wars – A New Hope: Open Air Theatre

26 Jun 2022 Only

Celebrate 45 years since its release by seeing the original 1977 Star Wars movie (now retitled: Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope) under the night sky at London’s Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre. The theatre capacity is over 1,200, so you’ll be in the company of plenty of fellow fans if the event sells out. Because the seating is tiered a good view is usually assured. This one-night-only event is part of a series of summer outdoor screenings presented by Luna Cinema.

There is a full bar at the event, and drinks purchased from the theatre bar can be taken into the auditorium. Alcohol purchased elsewhere is not permitted at all. There will also be a number of onsite options for purchasing hot and cold food and hot drinks.

Regent’s Park Open Air theatre is completely uncovered, so theatre-goers need to consider the unpredictability of the London weather. Unless the weather is judged dangerous (very unusual), the event will go ahead even in the event of heavy rain (with no refunds) so check the forecast on the day and bring appropriate clothing, and, for pessimists, a towel or cloth in case you need to dry your seat! Umbrellas cannot be used. For reference, the average London outdoor 10pm temperature at this time of year is around 17 degrees according to
