Typically, the glorious sunshine of the last few weeks has given way to torrential rain and strong winds, forcing Worthing Borough Council to abandon the first two screenings.

A Worthing Borough Council spokesman has confirmed, as things stand, the 8pm screening of The Greatest Showman will go ahead.

Concession tents will provide an element of cover and deckchairs will ensure viewers do not have to sit in puddles.
