The Dark Knight returns to Wollaton Hall

For a second consecutive year, Wollaton Hall, in Nottingham, will host a very special outdoor cinema experience in August, with screenings of The Dark Knight Rises, Gravity and Grease as part of the Summer Nights Outdoor Film Festival 2014.

Presented on a giant screen by QUAD, Derby’s centre for art and film, Summer Nights offers the chance to enjoy the great outdoors for a unique cinematic experience and will tour to other iconic locations around the region.

Wollaton Hall, which plays the role of ‘Wayne Manor’ in The Dark Knight Rises, has already garnered much attention due to its Hollywood role, and the screenings will provide a stunning backdrop for the events.

On 22 – 24 August 2014, bring your picnic and your family, friends or date and sample the tasty treats on offer at the scenic location of Wollaton Hall. The 500-acres of spectacular gardens and parkland are an ideal venue to be whisked away into a magical film dreamland.
