Exeter Picturehouse returns to Double Locks for a weekend of movies in the moonlight

The summer’s not over just yet as the Picturehouse Outdoor cinema pitches up in the idyllic canal-side setting of the Double Locks pub for three nights of cinema under the stars.

From 30 Aug – 1 Sep Picturehouse outdoors returns for a weekend of singing, dancing and time travel, with the backdrop of some of Devon’s most beautiful countryside. Films will start around dusk, but arrive earlier to enjoy the evening sun with a refreshing beverage from the pub and something delicious from their kitchen.
