The three-day event ended with a “people’s choice” screening
Penguins, planes and a pirate ship filled Bromley last week as Queen’s Gardens transformed into an outdoor cinema.
The free Midsummer Movies event saw films including Annie, Top Gun, Happy Feet and The Goonies all projected for 2,000 visitors to watch during the three-day screening.
Seven different films played across Thursday, Friday and Saturday with three screenings each day, ending with the “people’s choice”.
Voters chose from Ghostbusters, Grease or Dirty Dancing for the final showing and in the end it was John Travolta’s face on display for all to see on Saturday night.
Organised by Your Bromley, the town centre’s Business Improvement District, visitors were able to make donations to The Chartwell Cancer Trust and Bromley Homeless Shelter.
Manager Frances Forest said: “We are passionate about Bromley town centre and really hope that local residents and visitors enjoy events like this as much as we have enjoyed making it happen.”
