An Uckfield family were among the first guests at Farmyard Cinema: Festive Fun on the Farm.
The event runs until 23 December at Sharnfold Farm, near Stone Cross.
It promises to take you on a magical and Covid secure festive adventure like no other.
Some very special guests were invited to Friday’s launch, including Karen Ohuz from Uckfield, her daughter Erika, Erika’s best friend Max Skinner and Max’s mum Vic Floor.
Karen wanted to say a thank you to Vic for being so kind to her after a difficult year and a trip to the cinema did the trick.
Karen said: “It was a lovely evening. The barn was so cosy and the non-alcoholic mulled wine was a great touch. I really needed that so thank you to Sharnfold Farm for making it possible.”
Liz Ovenden was also invited and brought daughter Sara and granddaughter Charlie. She wanted to thank Sara for being so kind after the death of her husband.
She said: “It was brilliant, even front row seats.”
Films to be staged between now and 23 December include Home Alone, Love Actually, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Die Hard, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Elf, It’s A Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street and The Holiday.
The experience offers more than just watching the film. Guests arrive through a snow-covered wintry wonderland surrounded by decorated Christmas trees. They then pass through a light tunnel to the enchanted forest cinema space. Each showing is limited to 30 people at a cost of £25 per ticket.
