What to Expect...

Based in EventCity, just a few minutes from the Trafford Centre, welcome to the magic of Secret City - Manchester’s biggest and best outdoor cinema and live events venue.

There’s something for everyone at Secret City, whether it’s for a fun family day out, a date night with your special someone or if a fright night filled with petrifying jumpscares is more your thing, our schedule is jam-packed with goodies and timeless classics for all to enjoy.

Fancy a family day out?

Time is precious with our loved ones, and we’ve got the perfect events for all the family to enjoy! The kids will love our selection of film favourites. Eat all the donuts, ice cream and crepes you can manage and don’t forget our friendly characters causing mischief around the park!

Fancy a fright?

We know the idea of reliving 2020 is scary enough, but we’ve decided to take you back to ScareCity! The sell-out phenomenon brought to you by Park N Party will be returning as SecretCity: Fright Night for a limited number of showings.

Truly terrifying creatures will be lurking in the shadows, waiting to give you the fright of your life! With covid restrictions eased, feel free to explore the park- but beware, something horrific is watching you…
