Visitors Enjoy Bournemouth's New Outdoor Cinema
Welcome to Bournemouth's newest cinema, which has deckchairs for seats and no shortage of ice creams.
A giant screen has been installed in the Lower Gardens showing a mix of family films, Formula One action and live coverage from the Wimbledon tennis tournament.
Dozens of visitors enjoyed Toy Story, Shrek and The Italian Job during its first day and were full of praise for the initiative.
Julie Fisher, on holiday from Cheshire, said: We think this is brilliant There's nothing like it where we are from. We've had a lovely time lazing around watching films.
And her husband Gary said: It's great to find something to do that doesn't cost anything. It's a great idea.
June 20, the screen was due to show The Italian Job in the morning, followed by British Grand Prix qualifying at 12noon, Toy Story at 3pm and Shrek at 4.45pm. June 21 sees Toy Story at 10.40am, the British Grand Prix at 12.10pm, Shrek at 3.50pm and The Italian Job at 5.45pm.
Wimbledon coverage will start from Monday, which is expected to attract large crowds.
