Smithfield’s Bank Holiday Cinema Weekend

Back to News


We’re holding a free outdoor cinema weekend in Stoke-On-Trent on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th August, with hot food and drink for all the family to enjoy this summer.

The free event will take place on the grassy area in front of the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel. Spaces will be at a maximum capacity of 200 on a first-come first-served basis – so be quick!

Deckchairs will be available free of charge, but you’re welcome to bring their own picnic blankets to sit on too! The area will be fenced with three cubicle toilets available for our guests’ convenience.

Doors will open at 6pm, with films starting at 8pm and doors closing 15 minutes before the film starts, allowing plenty of time for settling in. Friday’s showing will be Back to the Future (PG) while Saturday’s showing will be The Greatest Showman (PG), both films suitable for all ages.

The Hilton will be supplying a selection of delicious snacks to buy, including popcorn, hotdogs, hamburgers and vegetarian options. Alcoholic beverages and soft drinks will also be on sale – however, we ask that you do not bring your own alcoholic beverages. Please also feel free to bring your own picnic!

Booking will be online (BOOK HERE) and guests will receive a booking confirmation to bring on the day in exchange for a wristband, so no need to print off tickets. After a quick bag search, our friendly staff will welcome guests on arrival and show them to their seats. Feel free to contact Charlotte ( with any issues regarding tickets and bookings.

Please note that pets will unfortunately not be allowed, and subtitles for each film will not be available. However, the event is fully wheelchair accessible.

We are so excited to welcome you to Smithfield for a weekend of summer cinema! Don’t miss out this August and make sure to secure your booking today for an unmissable outdoor cinema experience.
