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.
