Those Summer NightsRosliston Forestry Centre is hosting two nights of movie magic as part of the Summer Nights Outdoor Film Festival.
Grease is the word on Friday, July 20 when the ultimate high school musical - complete with its repertoire of catchy songs - rocks up. Dress in character or just come along and enjoy the tale of young love that never gets old.
The King's Speech is to be shown on the following night (Saturday 21) as part of South Derbyshire's Jubilee celebrations. The Oscar winner follows King George VI's journey to find his voice in front of an expectant nation.
Both films will be catapulted onto a giant screen nestled among spectacular woodland and wondrous wildlife.
Centre Manager Debbie Chesterman said:
"We are thrilled to be showing our first ever feature films at the forestry centre.
"It promises to be two evenings packed full of laughter, drama, sing-a-longs, show stopping performances and suspense.
"Tickets are still available and we would like to invite everyone to come along and see what is on offer. There will be fun for all the family."

Doors for the Outdoor Film Festival open at 7.30pm.
Visitors are welcome to bring a picnic or sample the tasty treats on offer.
