The UK’s first open-air cinema for children launches in Dulwich Park this Summer

The Luna Cinema launches BRAND NEW outdoor cinema for kids running from July to September in six venues across the country. The programme includes screenings of family-friendly classics such as The Lion King and Aladdin, alongside this year’s blockbusters including Paddington 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming as well as musical phenomenon The Greatest Showman.
