Beer, brawn and barbeque, “I’ll be back”

The UK's oldest pub is turning into an independent pop-up cinema over the summer.


Ye Olde Fighting Cocks, the origins of which date back to 793AD, will be turning its pub garden into an independent pop-up cinema with a summer of sic-fi, screening four movies in the garden of the pub complete with surround sound.


The first two movies will be Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day, which will be screened on 29 and 30 July respectively, Blade Runner: the Director’s Cut will be screened on 18 August with the fourth film being a people's choice film, the identity of which will be revealed on 30 July.


So movie goers will be able to sit back in the glorious surroundings of the garden of Britain’s oldest pub, which has breath-taking views of the lake in the 100 acres of Verulamium parkland, which was once the old Roman town of Verulamium and stomping ground of Boudicca, tuck into some tasty barbecue dishes and watch Arnie Schwarzenegger work his magic as a human-looking indestructible cyborg in Terminator on a huge screen complete with Surround Sound.


Tickets: £20 per person
