In pictures: Hundreds enjoy Maidenhead at the Movies

Magic of the silver screen came to Kidwells Park in Maidenhead as hundreds gathered for a three-day film festival.

Starting on Friday, Maidenhead at the Movies saw three films being streamed on a big screen each day with musical Les Misérables closing the festival on Sunday night.



The free event attracted huge crowds who poured into the park to watch films which also included family friendly cartoons like Madagascar 3 and blockbusters such as The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

Not even wet weather could dampen the spirits of movies fans who brought along chairs, picnics and even tents to the screenings.

In between each film showing, crowds were treated to a variety of entertainment including live bands from some of the towns top talent.

Youngsters were also given the chance to play Wii games on the big screen while a bouncy castle, fairground rides and section of food stalls added to the party atmosphere.

Maidenhead at the Movies is now in its fifth year having returned after a break last year when Olympic coverage was streamed on the big screen.
