Close Encounters (1978)

Planes reported missing in 1945 suddenly appear in the Mojave desert. A commercial flight is buzzed by a 'bright' object that the pilot 'wouldn't know how to describe'. Roy Neary, while working one night, has a Close Encounter...

The US Government determine where the visitors plan to land and create an elaborate cover-up to keep people away. However, a group of people, including Neary, share a vision which draws them to the place and a meeting with new, and old, friends.

We’ve teamed up with the lovely new folks at Mapperley-based Expresso, to make your evening under the stars even more special. For those who can afford a little more, choose to support our crowd funder 'Pizza Package' (which gives us extra help to use smaller, under-used spaces) for an extra £6.50, and - as a thank you - munch on something delicious from their new menu, delivered just before the show starts.


Dirty Dancing (1978)
Baby (Jennifer Grey) is one listless summer away from the Peace Corps. Hoping to enjoy her youth while it lasts, she's disappointed when her summer plans deposit her at a sleepy resort in the Catskills with her parents.

Her luck turns around, however, when the resort's dance instructor, Johnny (Patrick Swayze), enlists Baby as his new partner, and the two fall in love. Baby's father forbids her from seeing Johnny, but she's determined to help him perform the last big dance of the summer.

​​About the Venue

The Screen on the Green aims to make good new use of the old Haywood Road Bowling Green in the few months before Gedling Borough Council applies for planning permission to redevelop it into housing. The space is the only green space in Porchester Gardens; there is currently a campaign to save it:  First access tickets are available to sunset seekers now.
