Moonlight Flicks – Wonder Woman 1984

Spend an evening under the stars with Wonder Woman against the background of Chesters beautiful Cathedral

Storyhouse’s Moonlight Flicks returns this summer with the largest and longest open-air season of cinema to date.

This evenings showing is the incredible Wonder Woman 1984 – the ultimate female heroine.

Set in 1984, after saving the world in the original Wonder Woman, the immortal Amazon warrior, Princess Diana of Themyscira, finds herself trying to stay under the radar, working as an archaeologist at the Smithsonian Museum. With the memory of the brave U.S. pilot, Captain Steve Trevor, etched on her mind, Diana Prince becomes embroiled in a sinister conspiracy of global proportions when a transparent, golden-yellow citrine gemstone catches the eye of the power-hungry entrepreneur, Maxwell Lord. Now, as a dear old friend from the past miraculously enters the picture, and Barbara Minerva, Diana’s insecure gemologist colleague gives in to desire, suddenly, deceit, greed, and false promises catapult Maxwell into the limelight. More and more, cataclysmic events push the world to the brink, and emotionally vulnerable Diana must address a cruel dilemma. Can mighty Wonder Woman save humankind once again?

Tickets go on sale to Storyhouse Members today and on general sale from 4 May. Membership is £4 a month and members enjoy a range of benefits as well as supporting the work of Storyhouse. It can be cancelled at any time.
