No matter how many times you've seen a particular movie, watching any beloved flick in a completely different setting can make you appreciate it with fresh eyes. That's one of the ideas behind Blockbuster'd, Welcome to Thornbury's pop-up cinema. Operating for seven sessions between Wednesday, April 7–Sunday, April 18, it's showing films you've definitely seen before — but on a big screen.

On the bill: seven movies you likely first watched on VHS at a young age, and might not have ever seen in another format. That includes Weird Science to kick things off, then 90s faves Scream and Clueless — and Uncle Buck, Scream 2, Dirty Dancing and She's All That as well.

Your $25 ticket includes sitting on a beanbag, watching a film, a burger from Mr Burger and a drink. Some sessions also come with free popcorn. And, you can also order cocktails and beers to be brought to you will the movie flickers across the 4.5-metre by 2.5-metre screen — but those beverages aren't included in your entry price.

Sessions run at 7pm on weeknights, 8pm on weekend evenings and 2pm on Sundays.
