Shelves packed with books and magazines in Littleport library are set to make way for a special one-off event later this month.
As part of a new programme of arts events in public buildings, the library will be transported back to the 1950s for a showing of cult musical Grease.
Starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton John, the film will be showing on Friday, April 24, with doors opening at 7pm.
The pop-up cinema will also feature a popcorn and soda bar to get visitors in the movie mood and guests will be invited to sing-a-long to the hits made famous by the stars of the film.
The event is being supported by the Arts Council and Ely-based arts charity ADeC.
Louise Aldridge, who is helping to organise the event, said: “We ran a ghost stories event at the library earlier in the year which got a very good response so we decided to do something completely different this time.
“It gives us a chance to do something different with our public buildings and we hope people will come along and get behind it. And you can come in fancy dress too!”
