Open air cinemas and cold ciders

After our first foray into the world of open-air cinema at Lulworth Castle a couple of weeks ago, we enjoyed it so much that we thought we'd go to another, this time a screening of Skyfall at Corfe Castle last Sunday.

We learned our lesson with the chilly evening temperatures last time and this time packed blankets, jumpers and thicker coats - I must admit I did take some secret pleasure in pulling on my thick Jack Wills chinos and retrieving my coat from the cupboard under the stairs.  We retained a touch of summer by packing cold ciders into our coolbag and set off for Corfe Castle, taking in the beautiful views as we walked through the village and into the castle walls.

We set up our rug and camping chairs and enjoyed the beautiful sunset.  Tom's parents also came along, which was really nice - they brought some delicious cheese scones and we tucked into them, along with paper bags of warm popcorn sold at the screening.





Kopparberg recently very kindly sent me some bottles of their new flavours for my birthday - cloudberry and elderflower and lime.  We took the bottles of cloudberry along and had them in plastic cups, they were absolutely delicious (Kopparberg also sent me some lovely glasses but I didn't want to risk them getting broken at our al fresco soiree!) Cider is absolutely my drink of choice and Kopparberg just have the best flavours - I was dedicated to their mixed fruit flavour for several years, have recently been won over by strawberry and lime and now might be a new devotee to cloudberry, it is delicious!

The open air screening was such a lovely evening, it was amazingly atmospheric being outside in the ruins of a castle, especially watching the later scenes set in the Scottish moors with all the darkness all around you - it was such a perfect match.  I thoroughly enjoyed being snuggled up in a blanket and laid out on a rug with a giant Daniel Craig a few metres away!

Have you ever been to an open air cinema? (And what's your favourite Kopparberg flavour for al fresco supping?)

  9. Gosh, this post has made me move 'visit an open air cinema' right up in my bucket list! One of my best friends visited a local one last week and it's now my life mission to visit one! This looks absolutely amazing Rosie, and I'm certainly craving a Kopparberg or four - Cloudberry sounds like the dreamiest flavour! xx

  12. Looks like a lovely evening. I always feel smug when I bring cosy things to an outdoor cinema and half the audience are sitting there shivering, although last time I ended up donating a picnic blanket to a very chilly looking family! I've been meaning to try cloudberry Koppaberg for a while but I think I'll look a bit harder for it after reading this.

  13. Whoah! Cloudberry cider? I must try this at once! I fell in love with cloudberries years ago when I was visiting friends in Scandinavia and nip into IKEA every so often for some jam. Gorgeous stuff.

    I haven't been to an open air cinema yet. The zoo were doing screenings but it was all films we'd seen loads of times, so maybe next summer. There is an American-style drive-in cinema that shows films occasionally, but it's a bit steep at £35 a car!

  14. I'm a lover of the strawberry and lime cider having converted from mixed fruit. It's purely dangerous stuff as its just like pop! I noticed one of my favourite country pubs does warmed fruit ciders in the winter which I'm tempted to give a whirl! My local tesco is limited on the variety front but I may have to hunt out the cloudberry!

  16. This looks like the PERFECT way to spend the evening! When me and Liam went travelling we missed the open air cinema season so dead chuffed to hear there are some places that do it closer to home :) <3 Claire @ Jazzpad

  19. This looks like so much, and you definitely had the right idea by packing warmer clothes. I'm definitely with you on the cider boat, and I only ever seem to drink Koppaberg or Rekorderlig myself these days!
