On Wednesday 29th July, Cornwall Drive In Cinema comes to Scorrier House with the award-winning war epic 1917. Make sure you have your tickets ready by ordering here.

Nestled in the grounds where the Great Estate Festival normally takes place, Scorrier House’s Drive In Cinema is one of Cornwall’s grandest settings to watch classics from the safety of your car.

More than a just drive-in cinema, though, we have an amazing line-up of local food, icecream, popcorn and a fully licensed bar (all operating safely within Covid-19 guidelines).

Scorrier House is near to Redruth and Truro and yet easily accessible from all of Cornwall. The cinema itself, however, is surrounded by the ancient woodlands and beautiful garden of the Scorrier Estate.
