Numbers will be limited to ensure that the event can take place under the latest government health and safety guidance on social distancing.
Councillor Ian Kettle, cabinet member responsible for halls, said:
"We are delighted to be able to bring this event to our prestigious Himley Hall site. With the restrictions that the Covid-19 lockdown has brought this will be a chance for families to enjoy some quality time out of their homes in a safe environment.
"We really do want to hear people’s thoughts on what films they would like to see screened and I would encourage them to visit our Facebook page and tell us their thoughts via our online poll.”
Visitors will be encouraged to bring their own food and refreshments but no alcohol.
Cars will be kept apart following the two metre social distancing regulations and people will be able to stream the audio from the film via their car radios.
