Under the summer evening skies the ultimate movie experience awaits audiences in Enfield Town Park, when four popular films are screened at the pop-up cinema from Wednesday 10 – Saturday 13 August, organised by Enfield Council.

The films are: 'Mamma Mia' on Wednesday; 'Goonies' on Thursday; 'The Lost Boys' on Friday; and 'Grease' on Saturday.

Family favourite 'Mamma Mia', (PG certificate) will entertain all ages and this special showing is supporting the Mayor of Enfield’s charity, 'Enfield Sounds Great'.

Set on a Greek Island three potential fathers of a young bride-to-be are invited to her wedding and she tries to discover which one is her father. Meryl Streep, Julie Walters, Pierce Brosnan and Colin Firth star in this energetic sun-filled romp showcasing ABBA's most memorable songs.

Mayor, Cllr Bernadette Lappage, said: "This all-time family favourite is a great happy musical full of the most popular and memorable ABBA songs.

"By coming to see the film people will be helping my charity with all proceeds from ticket sales going towards funding musical education; supporting school choirs and glee projects; repairing old musical instruments and planning to support music therapies.

"So I urge everyone to come, sing all you can at this lovely community event as dusk turns to night in Enfield Town – all welcome while tickets last."

'Goonies' (12 certificate) on Thursday is a popular adventure tale with young friends looking for treasure in order to save their house.

Friday's screening is 'The Lost Boys', (15 certificate), a 1987 American horror comedy starring Jason Patric, Corey Haim and Kiefer Sutherland. It concerns two Arizona brothers who move to California and end up fighting a gang of young vampires.

Saturday evening takes us back to 'Grease' (PG certificate) the American high school musical set in the 50s starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John.

The pop-up cinema opens at 6.30pm on each night and films start soon after 8.30pm.
