The first weekend of the drive-in cinema event went extremely well, according to organisers, and quite a few shows were sold out.

However, Cambridge Film Projects had to cancel Friday evening’s screenings for health and safety reasons due to the high winds.

The team behind the film festival have rescheduled the movies to be screened on an extra day.

Film-goers can now enjoy both BlacKkKlansman and A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood on the evening of Thursday, August 27.

Tom Hanks can be seen in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood at the Cambridge Drive-In Cinema at Trumpington Park & Ride.Tom Hanks can be seen in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood at the Cambridge Drive-In Cinema at Trumpington Park & Ride.
