Book tickets to see the Original 1981 uncut version of An American Werewolf In London at our fantastic night of outdoor cinema horror in the beautiful Hockley Woods.

Scared? No? You will be !

There are a limited number of tickets available for this event due to the size of the clearing, so don't delay. We'll have a pre-film singer, a bit of karaoke, food, soft and alcoholic drinks available for purchase. Book your tickets for this unique event now.

Gates open at 7:00pm(not before). Live pre-film entertainment from 8:15pm. Then enjoy a laugh with some ‘Outdoor Karaoke’ whilst we wait for the sun to finally go down, enough for us to start the film – approximately 9:15pm. Then grab the person next to you and huddle close to watch the classic An American Werewolf In London on the big screen with HD projectors and awesome sound!

Two American college students are on a walking tour of Britain and are attacked by a werewolf. One is killed, the other is mauled. The werewolf is killed but reverts to its human form, and the local townspeople are unwilling to acknowledge its existence. The surviving student begins to have nightmares of hunting on four feet at first but then finds that his friend and other recent victims appear to him, demanding that he commit suicide to release them from their curse, being trapped between worlds because of their unnatural deaths. 

The film is certificated 15 – In accordance with the law, under 15's will not be admitted. Under 16’s will not be admitted unless accompanied by an adult.

Note: NO GLASS will be permitted at this event.

A fab night out! Excellent choice of setting, very well organised and run. Good choice of food and drink available but also no problem to take your own. Nice clean loos too!

Absolute Brilliant Night - well organised and a fantastic setting , it was quite surreal watching a Horror movie in the middle of a dark wood - really liked the Pre-Film entertainment as well - Great Singer - Looking forward to the next event

A fab evening all round!!! I booked this event as an unusual and interesting thing to do with my family and we all enjoyed it very much! The setting was brilliant, who doesn't want to watch a classic horror in a clearing in the woods? The fact there was a bar, coffee shack and food van all decorated with pretty fairy lights just added to the ambience and our picnic!!!! Our teenage girls and adult son thought it was a very cool thing to do as well making us even cooler parents than usual!!! I would recommend this to everyone and will definately attend another event! Top tip though.... Take insect repellent , we got no bites but there were plenty of midges in the wood and had we not used repellent I fear we may have been feasted upon!

First time at an outdoor cinema. Great event. Well organised. Food and drinks sold at a reasonable price. Grab a blanket, camping chair and insect repellent for a great night! Kelly visited Hockley Woods on 22 Jul 2016

Great fun, good atmosphere, definitely something different. Insect repellent and a folding chair are a MUST. Great fun, good atmosphere, definitely something different. Insect repellent and a folding chair are a MUST. Karen visited Hockley Woods on 22 Jul 2016

Brilliant night, it was my first outdoor cinema experience, and I really ought to have chosen a different film. I was terrified and hated every minute of it, The whole outdoor cinema experience was fabulous though, I thought the singer was great, karaoke hilarious and the food and drinks stalls reasonably priced, the whole event was brilliantly organised, and despite being in the woods in the dark, watching a film about werewolves, I felt relatively safe. Re the earlier review about more howling a people dressed up as wolves ... Er.... No thanks! I will definitely be going again, but probably a chick flick in a park will be my choice! 💖

A very well organised, well set up event. If I were to improve on it I would have maybe had someone dressed up as wolf and had some howling sound effects to be played before/after the film. Would definitely attend again Mitchell visited Hockley Woods on 22 Jul 2016

Well organised event Really enjoyed the film Singer beforehand was nice to listen too Not a fan of Karaoke but admire those that gave it a bash Was a bit worried that we didn't stick to the roads taking a shortcut through the woods to get home hamster66 visited Hockley Woods on 22 Jul 2016

Well done all at Moonbeamers Outdoor Cinema for a well organised, (and by the looks of it a fully-booked) event! Very atmospheric seeing AWIL in the woods. We had a great time and really hope to come to another event with our kids next time! Only thing I would mention is that a friend of ours tried to buy tickets just before the day and he couldn't find a way of doing so - I am guessing from the turnout this is because you were fully booked, but I am not sure if this was explained on Facebook.

Like other reviewer this will not allow me to purchase any tickets! Not impressed as will probably be inundated with emails now but unable to buy any thing. Waste of time.

So far this site will not let me purchase a thing! Instead forcing me to sign up for email shots and write reviews for something I cannot even get into. So have your review.... Rubbish!!!!
