Merchant Square Movies are back! What could be better than an open-air movie by the canal on a summer day? No booking is required. Just turn up at least 15 minutes before the film begins to find a spot. Deckchairs are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Or bring your own picnic blanket and find a spot on the grass.

Snacks are essential when watching a movie, so we’re offering some light bites to give you the ultimate movie experience – free of charge! Look out for our theatre ushers, who will be entertaining you throughout the film and distributing popcorn to give you the ultimate cinema experience!

Stocks will be limited, so we recommend stopping by Simply M&S for your own supplies as well.
