Some films will be shown twice each day – such as Interstellar and The Incredibles 2 – so that younger viewers can enjoy at an earlier time and adults can watch later in the evening. 

There will be food and drinks stalls on the pier for film-lovers to enjoy.

Guests can enjoy ciders or beers, as well as popcorn, hot meals and vegan snacks provided by street food vendor The Soul Bowl.

The Village Popup are a business who organise pop-up events in Portsmouth, Waterlooville and Southampton such as markets, festivals, backyard cinema, drinks and street food to promote small businesses and independent traders in the city. 

Their next event, on Saturday September 14, will be a food festival held on South Parade Pier, where they will invite street food and drink vendors from around the city to offer their delicacies. 

The business’s owner, Tobi Stidolph said: ‘We’re just trying to do something different in Southsea.

‘It's such a nice venue.’

Their events, which have been running for the last five years, are free and open to everyone.

They offer competitive rates and even free gazebos to small traders and businesses to allow those who don’t have a full set-up yet to get a head start at trading. 

The Village Popup will be trading at this year’s Victorious Festival.
