The Luna Bar with Moretti will be present at all screenings, serving a full selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, as well as the famous Italian beer itself. There will also be hot food available at all screenings.

Audiences are also welcome to dig out their hampers and pack a picnic – glass bottles are not allowed on site, though. Food and drink at Luna’s screenings will be available to order using a handy ‘click and collect’ service to avoid time spent queuing.

For the ultimate VIP experience guests can opt for the Luna Luxe ticket, which offers two people the chance to watch the film from luxury sofa seating with blankets, heaters, a sharing hamper of food, a bottle of bubbles and a mini cup of luxury ice cream Häagen-Dazs, to complete the cinematic experience.

George Wood, founder of The Luna Cinema, said: “After so many months spent watching films at home, we are delighted to be inviting the people of Yorkshire to return to the big screen, with our brand of socially spacious, open-air cinema experiences including Sheffield Amphitheatre.

“So, picture this: your favourite film; the people you’ve missed (or just missed spending quality time with); a starry summer sky above, and all around you the most inspiring and beautiful settings, such as Sheffield Amphitheatre.

“We are promising our guests an outing worthy of the wait – and we are counting down the days to welcoming Britain back to the movies.”
