Marlow based Firefly Events, is running four open-air movie nights, set in the stunning scenery and rolling hills of Culden Faw estate, in nearby Hambleden. The perfect setting to enjoy under a film under the stars with friends and family, and they have lined up some cracking films:

  • Friday 11 May, the 1980s classic, Pretty Woman​, starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts. 
  • Saturday 12 May, it will be The Breakfast Club – one of the first and best known “Brat Pack” films.
  • Sunday 13 May IT (2017)​ should guarantee goosebumps and the hairs on the back of the audience’s neck to stand on end…
  • Monday 14 May, Firefly will be screening the recent huge hit The Greatest Showman​. This is the film’s release date for outdoor cinema, so it really is quite a coup.

About Firefly

Firefly Events, based in Marlow, was set up last year by entrepreneurs Alice Collins, Andrea O’Hagan and Janis Prescott. Firefly Events specialises in pop-up cinema  – indoor, outdoor and drive-in.

The company got off to a flying start last year, working with hotels, golf clubs, businesses – and most prominently in Marlow with The Gourmet Picture Company, during the pop-up cinema festival in December.

Alice Collins, Co-Founder of the business said “We’re delighted to be back in Hambleden for the second year and we’re increasing the number of films as it was so popular last year. We’re over the moon that we can show The Greatest Showman on its release date – this is a fantastic film that fans love to come back to watch again and again. Given they’ll be able to sing and dance along without worrying about disturbing other people in the audience, we’re sure there will be an amazing atmosphere.”
