Trinity Hospice’s ever-popular Trinity Summer Cinema Series, where they show classic films on the big screen in their beautiful gardens, is an event that has attracted rave reviews and always sells out. The screenings open at 7.30, and the movies start at sunset – usually around 8.45pm. As well as the standard admission there are also VIP packages available where you can enjoy the best seats, a bottle of prosecco, popcorn, and other summery treats.
This year, they have asked their supporters to vote for the films that they are showing, and the results are three of the best-loved cult classics in the cinematic canon. First up is the enduring cross-dressing comedy Some Like it Hot, in which Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon hide out from the mob in an all-female jazz band starring Marilyn Monroe.
The second film is the ever-popular musical comedy starring Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi as Jake and Elwood in The Blues Brothers, with guest appearances from the likes of James Brown, Aretha Franklin, and Ray Charles. The final film in the series is classic comedy Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, where a high-school wise guy Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) teams up with nervous buddy Cameron and girlfriend Sloane to take the art of bunking off school to a whole new level.
