After a public vote the following films came out as overall winners were Pretty Woman and The Goonies and will be shown in the Tamworth Castle grounds.

Pretty Woman is a 1990 American romantic comedy (rated 15) directed by Garry Marshall and starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts. Set in Hollywood, the film tells the story of Vivien Ward (Roberts) who is down on her luck until being hired by wealthy businessman Edward Lewis (Gere) to be his escort for a week.

With its rags to riches storyline, legendary scenes and a stand-out soundtrack, Pretty Woman is one of the most popular films of all time and is still enjoyed by audiences today.

The second most popular feel-good film has been chosen for the midnight movie in the form of much-loved adventure tale The Goonies. This 12-rated 1985 movie has become a cult classic, following a band of young boys as they hunt for One-Eyed Willy’s gold in an attempt to save their neighbourhood from demolition. The Goonies will be a silent screening and headphones will be provided.

Cinema goers are invited to take warm blankets and a picnic, although food and drink will be on sale during both events. No glass, gazebos or alcohol are to be taken on site, but a licensed bar will be available throughout.
