Forget Netflix and Disney +, in 2020 The Garage is becoming a beautiful pop up cinema and believe us, it's something you are not going to want to miss.
With our vintage 1930's theatre seats* and a 5m wide screen, take a step back in time with your friends and family to watch some of the most beloved films of the last century in our beautiful pop-up cinema. Settle in for the night with good company, local beers, gins, wines and soft drinks and rewatch your favourite film in the industrial setting of The Engine Shop.
With a bit of heating, hot drinks and hot food, it's just like going to a proper cinema except it's cheaper and infinitely cooler.
Running on the first Friday of the month with tickets priced at £6. Doors open at 7pm and films start at 8pm. Classic cinema snacks will be available.

There are various public car parks within walking distance to The Garage. These include Wilmot Lane Car Park and Chilwell Road Car Park. The Garage has some of the best local transport links in the country so we recommend using local transport and taxis where possible.

All seating is unreserved.


Classic cinema snacks will be available to purchase from the bar as well as alcoholic and soft drinks. 

Hot food is available in the bar area when specified

* Some 1930's theatre seats may not be available until after their 2020 refurbishment
