Return of the MAC once again!

Cinema has finally made a return. Whilst it might be cosy curled up on the sofa on a cold, wintery night watching a film on the TV screen, there’s nothing quite like the atmosphere of a cinema. But what about the atmosphere of an amphitheatre?

This summer, the Midlands Arts Centre (MAC) is back, and with it’s reopening comes the return of their outdoor theatre hosting live performances, as well as screenings. The MAC has announced that it will be showing screenings of some cult and romantic classics as part of their Sundown Cinema programme.

Visitors can sit back on one of the steps of MAC’s outdoor theatre to watch one of three screenings taking place this August. Tickets start from £10 and you can enjoy refreshments from the bar at the MAC or a pre-film meal at brand new KILN café.

Here’s MAC’s Sundown Cinema programme.

Trainspotting, August 20

Grab a limited edition Irn Bru cocktail from the bar and join MAC outdoors for a 25th anniversary celebration of one of the most influential (and controversial) British films of all time.

The Big Lebowski, August 27


It’s White Russians all round as MAC screens the Coen Brothers’ 90s cult classic a their outdoor theatre, featuring Jeff Bridges in what has become a career-defining role.

Moulin Rouge, August 29
