films move from park to car park

Have your say

Fans of Abba in Sheffield are being encouraged to dig out their flares for an open air cinema screening.

Musical Mamma Mia, which features hits from the 1970s superstars, is being shown at a car park off Milton Street in the city centre.

The charity event was originally set to take place at Millhouses Park, with an additional screening of children’s animation Frozen.

But the fundraiser had to be shifted as the same film was being shown last weekend at the Lyceum Theatre.

Now there will also be a showing of the Wallace and Gromit film The Wrong Trousers at Milton Street.

Proceeds from the screening will be donated to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

There will also be Greek-themed food, as well as coffee and cakes, on offer for moviegoers.

Karen Thorpe, from Movie Park, said organisers had moved the event instead of cancelling it as they ‘didn’t want to let people down’ .

The event on Saturday opens at 6pm.
