Open air cinema comes to Hertfordshire this summer as The Luna Cinema turns the grand Hatfield House estate into the ultimate setting for three nights of classic cinema under the stars.

Movies being screened at the stately home over the bank holiday weekend of Friday, August 26 to Sunday, August 28 are Star Wars: The Force Awakens (12A), Grease (PG) and Labyrinth (U), which was filmed at Elstree Studios in Borehamwood.

On August 26, the seventh movie in the Star Wars saga, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, can be seen in Hatfield, with Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill reprising their roles from the original intergalactic blockbuster.
