Castle Way,


Drive in, sit back and prepare for a spooktacular night of cinema in the parade square of Carlisle Castle! Where better to watch all of your frightening favourites than one of the most haunted castles in Cumbria?

Each night there'll be an early family screening at 17:00 and a 20:00 screening for older cinema fans in search of something scarier. With different movies every evening there's bound to be something for all film fanatics at our drive-in spooky cinema.

No need to come prepared we'll have popcorn, candyfloss and soft drinks to satisfy your sweet tooth during the showing. All you'll need to do is bring a blanket to cosy up with your friends and family (and maybe hide behind!).

Before the film starts we dare you to take a look up at the Captain's Tower from your car - you might catch a glimpse of the phantom lady!

Check out what's on:

Saturday 28 October
17:00: Ghostbusters (12A)
