We are excited to announce our very first outdoor cinema event with a screening of ‘Emma’ (2020) on Sunday 13th September 2020. Doors open at 7.30pm, screening starts at 8.00pm.

Enjoy Autumn de Wilde’s sumptuous adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic novel Emma in the historic grounds of Chawton House. Purchase your refreshments and popcorn from the Old Kitchen Tearoom before taking your place on the South Lawn. 

Handsome, clever and rich, Emma Woodhouse (Anya Taylor-Joy) lives a comfortable lifestyle with her hypochondriac father (Bill Nighy) and delights in matchmaking. This beautifully made, fresh, funny and fast-moving version of the much-loved novel is a charming and faithful adaptation. 

  • Tickets: £14

Further information

  • You are welcome to bring your own low-backed chairs, or a picnic rug to this event.
  • Social distancing must be adhered to and spaces will be marked out accordingly. Spaces for chairs will be allocated towards the back of the audience area to allow the optimum view for most people.
  • The Old Kitchen tearoom will be open for takeaway and serving a selection of hot and cold drinks, cocktails and popcorn.
  • Dogs are welcome, so long as they’re kept on a short lead.

Please note:

This event will take place whatever the weather and tickets are non-refundable.

In the event of particularly bad wind or rain this event will move inside our barn and the film will be screened in two sittings: 6-8:15pm and 8:30-10:45pm.

You will be emailed with an update on Thursday 10 September when fairly accurate weather forecasts are available.
