Open air cinema to mark a proud centenary

As part of the celebrations marking 100 years of film and television heritage in the Hertsmere area, the council and Hertsmere Leisure are laying on three special outdoor cinema events in local parks, showing iconic films made in Borehamwood.

Tuesday 27 August – King George Recreation Ground, Bushey - 'The King's Speech'
Wednesday 28 August – Meadow Park, Borehamwood - 'Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom'
Thursday 29 August – Oakmere Park, Potters Bar - 'Sherlock Holmes and the Game of Shadows'

All start at 7pm. There will be refreshments but you might also like to bring a picnic, a blanket and fold up chair.

Councillor Brenda Batten, Portfolio Holder for Leisure, Culture and Health, said: "What better way to celebrate this wonderful centenary than enjoying some of the great films that have been made in the area. I hope that many local residents will come along to enjoy these evenings and, hopefully, the weather will be kind."

Rob Dodkin, Hertsmere Leisure's Operations and Events Manager, said: "This is a fantastic way to enjoy the beautiful King George Recreation Ground whilst showcasing the iconic films made on our doorstep. It will be a great event that all the family can enjoy."
