Calke Abbey hosts two of the latest screenings in the Summer Nights series.

Summer Nights 2015 is back for a fifth year with eight fabulous locations and a choice of 11 different films; from feel-good classics, family friendly, contemporary comedy, sci-fi and musicals.

Presented on a twelve foot screen by QUAD, Derby’s centre for art and film, Summer Nights Festival screenings offer the chance to enjoy the great outdoors for a unique cinematic experience.

The Blues Brothers, from 1980, stars the comedy genius of Dan Aykroyd and the late great John Belushi.

Jake and Elwood Blues are on a mission from God, to put their band back together, in order to raise money to save the Catholic Orphanage where they were raised.

With additional performances from some of the greatest blues legends, James Brown, Aretha Franklin and Ray Charles, this chaotic mix of music and comedy demands to be seen on the big screen.

The Blues Brothers (15) screens at Calke Abbey on Friday, August 7, while The Grand Budapest Hotel (15) screens at Calke Abbey on Saturday, August 8.

Doors are open from 7pm for both nights.
