Maidenhead at the Movies returns to Kidwells Park

A record number of blockbuster hits will be beamed onto the silver screen as Maidenhead at the Movies returns.

The free event, which begins tomorrow and runs until Sunday, will showcase four films a day for the first time, with favourites such as Frozen and Forrest Gump taking centre stage in Kidwells Park.

The movie marathon has run since 2008, taking a break two years ago to stream coverage live from the London Olympics, and will also offer fairground rides and snacks.

Organisers were unsure whether funding would be in place for this year's family-friendly outdoor cinema but town manager Steph James said the number of demands for its return resulted in a last minute scramble to pull it all together.

The Maidenhead Town Partnership stepped forward as sponsors and Steph said the team is now looking forward dropping the curtain on the biggest Maidenhead at the Movies to date with a range of flicks to suit all tastes.

"We're really pleased, especially with things like Frozen and Forrest Gump," said Steph.

"Hopefully we have got something for everyone.

"Fingers crossed the weather will be a bit better than it has been for the past few days.

"We've had a lot of people asking after it.

"We get a few hundred people at each film and for the Saturday evening show we get up to a thousand people in the park dancing and singing along."

Steph added that the films continue to roll whatever the weather and guests are welcome to bring their own chairs and blankets or rent some on the day.
