SOME of Portsmouth’s most historic venues and beauty spots will host outdoor screenings of classic and contemporary films.

Award-winning Portsmouth Film Society (PFS) has organised a series of Sunset Open Air Screenings beginning May 30 with Easy Rider at the University Students’ Union.

That will be followed by Sergio Leone’s western The Good, the Bad and the Ugly in Victoria Park on June 6, Dallas Buyers Club, a true-life story featuring Matthew McConaughey’s Oscar-winning performance, at Southsea Castle on June 24 and Star Trek: Into the Darkness on June 28 at Cumberland House Natural History Museum Garden.

Other venues include the D-Day Museum, Southsea Castle and Cumberland House Natural History Museum Garden.

PFS chairwoman and University of Portsmouth lecturer Aysegul Epengin said: ‘We hope that the legacy of this project will be to establishing more cinema appreciation in areas of Portsmouth and attract people of all ages together to share the film watching experience in these unique environments.’
