 Three open air cinemas will screen iconic films made in Elstree Studios.

As part of the celebrations marking 100 years of film and television heritage in Elstree and Borehamwood, Hertsmere Borough Council and Hertsmere Leisure are laying on three outdoor cinema events in parks.

The King’s Speech, starring Colin Firth will be shown on Tuesday, August 26, at the King George Recreation Ground in Bushey.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom will be shown in Borehamwood’s Meadow Park on Wednesday August 27, while on the Thursday, August 28, Oakmere Park in Potters Bar will screen Sherlock Holmes and the Game of Shadows.

Refreshments will be provided but film-goers also have the option to bring a picnic, a blanket and folding chair.

Councillor Brenda Batten, who is responsible for leisure, culture and health, said: "What better way to celebrate this wonderful centenary than enjoying some of the great films that have been made in the area. I hope that many local residents will come along to enjoy these evenings and, hopefully, the weather will be kind."

Rob Dodkin, Hertsmere Leisure’s operations and events manager, said: “This is a fantastic way to enjoy the beautiful King George Recreation Ground whilst showcasing the iconic films made on our doorstep. It will be a great event that all the family can enjoy."

All films start at 7pm.
