London’s best outdoor cinemas for watching movies in the sunshine
Summer is the perfect time for Londoners to get out and about as much as possible.
And what better way to enjoy the sunny months in the capital than at outdoor cinemas and outdoor film screenings.
Whether you’re looking for venues showing ‘golden oldies’ or new releases, here are the best places to stock up on film supplies this summer:
Film club on the roof
Peckham and Stratford
The self-proclaimed home of open-air cinemas Film club on the roof has bases in Peckham and further east in Stratford.
And the good news is that fans can see a whole host of cult classics this summer. These include 13 Going on 30, Breakfast at Tiffany’s and even the ’90s favorite Spice World. Clueless, Top Gun: Maverick and Where the Crawdads Sing are also on the program.
Fans can purchase twin seats for two or one person, with the full range of films and ticket information available Here.
Lower Marsh Lates… at the movies
This one’s a winner because it’s free and offers a real once-a-month treat for fans of classic sing-alongs.
And considering the location is the name of an Abba song, what else could they use to kick off the event but Mamma Mia!
Every last Thursday of the month, from May 25th to the end of September, there is a big screen and local bars serve drinks. Sun loungers are also provided on a first come, first serve basis.
This summer’s movies include Hairspray, Grease, and Little Shop of Horrors. All information about the times and what is shown when can be found at Here.
