The On Location Film Festival is like no other, with films coming to life in locations across Worthing.



Last years festival was a sell-out success and it will return to Worthing on the 18th September for it's third consecutive year. There will be five classic films to suit all ages with added extras and surprises!


Sunday 18th September is the opening night with a free screening of Cinema Paradiso outside the Connaught Theatre. Union Place will be closed off, so you will be able to wander and enjoy Barefoot Wine as well as a few nibbles with this Oscar winning film which will be projected onto the nearby wall. But don't worry, if the weather turns and it does begin to rain the film will be screened on the following evening.


The beautiful surroundings of the WWT Arundel Wetland Centre will be brought to life with a showing of the 'Winged Migration' (PG) documentary on Friday 23rd September. Pop along for a 6:45pm start and take a stroll through the stunning wildlife centre, finally taking a seat to watch the film with the lake as a backdrop. Included in the ticket price is a free glass of Barefoot wine, a raffle and two for one entry when you revisit the centre.


Get the family together on Sunday 25th September and be taken 'to infinity and beyond' at Ashdown Nursery. See how Woody, Buzz and the toys come to life once the children go home. There will be three screenings on this date, 11am, 2:30pm and 6pm and tickets include free popcorn, a drink, a Toy Story book for every child and a treasure hunt!


Watch out for Zombies, the Guildbourne Centre will be transformed on Saturday 1st October with the living dead! There will be two screenings of the 1978 George Romero's classic Dawn Of The Dead with the first at 7pm and the other at 10:30pm, so book your tickets now. There will be free popcorn and glass of Barefoot wine for every zombie who attends along with a prize for the best dressed undead. The Guildbourne Grill will also be open for those zombies who get a little peckish. 


The festival draws to a close on the 2nd October with a screening of the Bogart & Bergmann classic 'Casablanca'. The Persian Cocktail Lounge is the perfect setting with a touch of Moroccan glamour. There will be a live piano player and after the film you can enjoy complimentary Moroccan food courtesy of Coast Cafe. If you don't fancy getting in the mood then there will also be an optional 1940's dress code with a fantastic prize of a meal for two at Coast Cafe for the best dressed.
