Come join us for another of our Open Air Cinema nights, part of our 7th and longest season of great films under the stars. A fantastic film with so many great chart topping hits packed into 120 minutes, and then add in the perfect venue of Saltdean Lido on the cliffs above the South Coast. 

Enjoy fantastic live music from local artists, performing while the sun sets and before we hit play on a modern classic and the biggest grossing film of 2018

THE FILM - THE GREATEST SHOWMAN - Sing Along (Film starts: 20:30)

Celebrating the birth of show business and tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.

Orphaned, penniless but ambitious and with a mind crammed with imagination and fresh ideas, the American Phineas Taylor Barnum will always be remembered as the man with the gift to effortlessly blur the line between reality and fiction. 
Thirsty for innovation and hungry for success, the son of a tailor will manage to open a wax museum but will soon shift focus to the unique and peculiar, introducing extraordinary, never-seen-before live acts on the circus stage. Some will call Barnum's wide collection of oddities, a freak show; however, when the obsessed showman gambles everything on the opera singer Jenny Lind to appeal to a high-brow audience, he will somehow lose sight of the most important aspect of his life: his family. Will Barnum risk it all to be accepted?


One of the UK’s premier Art Deco buildings & Lidos, hailed as the most innovative designs of its type in Britain, featured in the design museum in London. Designed by R.W.H Jones in 1937 and still in use and now Grade II listed, located right on the South Coast, described as ‘particularly glourious’ with its elegant, curved lines, like that of an ocean liner.

One of the most unique, stunning and iconic venues on the South Coast and the UK, and a brilliant back drop for Open Air Cinema with some iconic films to match.

The Saltdean Lido, The Oval Park, Saltdean Park Rd,, Saltdean, Brighton, BN2 8SP

Cinestock began in 2013 by two men with a seemingly impossible vision; to create a cinema in the middle of a field during the great British Summer time. And look how far we've come! We started with one event and ended our last season with phenomenal impact with 'E.T in the High Street', an event that saw East Grinstead come to a stand still as people poured in from the local community to watch a true classic. But the fun doesn't end there, this year our organisers have been busy ever-pushing the limits of local street-cinema and we are proud to present to you a season of amazing films.
