This year’s The Luna Cinema outdoor screenings in the St Albans park in July will be Pretty Woman (15) and Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (12).

Richard Gere and Julia Roberts star in Pretty Woman on the big screen at Highfield Park on Thursday, July 7.

The 1990 American romantic comedy film set in Los Angeles centres on down-on-her-luck Hollywood hooker Vivian Ward (Roberts), who is hired by wealthy businessman Edward Lewis (Gere) to be his escort for several business and social functions.

The businessman then falls in love with the beautiful prostitute.

Doors will open at 7.45pm, with the film starting around 9.15pm when it gets dark.

General admission tickets cost £13.50.

Kevin Costner can be watched in the open air at Highfield Park three weeks later when action adventure Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves is the big outdoor movie on Wednesday, July 27.

The romantic action adventure also stars Morgan Freeman, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Christian Slater and the late Alan Rickman in one of his most memorable roles.

Doors open slightly earlier than for the Pretty Woman show, at 7.30pm, with the film due to start around 9pm.

Tickets cost £13.50, and child admission (for 12 to 15 years) is £9.

Pre-sale tickets are available now and they go on general sale on Friday, April 8.
