It’s something we’ve all seen in those cheesy American teen movies. An incredibly handsome guy in a baseball jacket pulls a cheerleader close as the least scary monster ever rears its plastic head on a giant screen.
…the best way to spend your long summer nights…
But, this is London. Taking American trends and adding that little something extra is what we do! Here’s the lowdown on the best way to spend your long summer nights – the outdoor cinema trend.
Queen of Hoxton’s Rooftop Film Club
Take the Queen of Hoxton’s Rooftop Film Club. Nestled among the grape vines, above the fish pond and behind the BBQ is a cinema screen. Take the chance to settle into a comfy chair with a pair of wireless headphones.
…something for everyone.
From classics like The Life of Brian to the ladies’ favourite, Dirty Dancing there’s something for everyone. But for £9 and with only 200 seats, the mailing list is the only way to go – sign up for a countdown of when the tickets are on sale!
Film4 Summer Screen
Film4 Summer Screen from 27 July to 7 August is a cosy grab-a-blanket-and-a-loved -one affair – at a reasonable £15 per person. For serious film buffs there’s also BAFTA’s Behind the Screen, a chance to hear what the directors, actors and industry insiders have to say before you watch their creation unfold.
The Nomad Cinema
…weird and wonderful range of locations…
As its name suggests, The Nomad Cinema will be travelling around London, setting up a screen in a weird and wonderful range of locations from 25 June to 24 September.
For £12.50, you can watch The King’s Speech at Hampton Court Palace, Wall-E at Greenwich Park, or any other curious combination you can think of.
…stuffy indoor cinema seats a thing of the past.
