People are asked to arrive 30 minutes before each screening to take their seat and put on the headsets.

Unless there are high winds and torrential rain then cinema screenings will go ahead as advertised.

There will be seating, blankets and some wet weather cover for visitors, but people are advised to dress for the outdoors.

People are also asked to not take umbrellas with them as this will obscure the view for other customers.

Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

And ahead of next weekend’s event, River Island is set to open at Rushden Lakes today (Saturday).

It joins the likes of H&M, New Look, Primark and Joules which opened at the end of July.
