Free film showings continue this weekend (Sat 15th - Sun 16th July) inside the former BHS store in Salisbury's Old George Mall.

The special 'pop-up' theater was opened last weekend (8th July), and pulled decent crowds. But it's only a temporary attraction for the summer.

It's carrying on with showing family films, completely free of charge, every Saturday and Sunday until August 20th.

It's also raising money for Salisbury District Hospital's Stars Appeal, with donations being received after each screening.

Here's the full timetable:

  • Saturday 12th August: 11.00am Despicable Me, 2.30pm Despicable Me 2
  • Sunday 13th August: 11.00am Minions, 2.30pm Secret life of Pets
  • Saturday 19th August: 11.00am Trolls, 2.30pm Sing
  • Sunday 20th August: 11.00am Lego Batman Movie, 2.30pm Beauty and the Beast (new version)

Manager of Old George Mall, Jon Osgood, says the 'free' cinema follows a successful trial:

"Our Spooky Cinema in October was a huge success with more than 650 parents and their children coming along to enjoy Halloween, so we thought introducing Cinemania would be the perfect way to keep youngsters entertained during the school holidays."
