Outdoor Cinema Screenings in August

Maruf Ahmed

THERE’S NO gimmicks, no stunts – just a field full of like-minded people and great films.

Prepare yourself for a summer of cinematic joy as the legendary Pop Up Screens is back, this year presented by Eurowings and bigger and better than ever – with an epic programme of classic films, guaranteed to give you the perfect summer movie night out.

Once again Pop Up Screens has put together a programme to inspire and delight that includes comedies Deadpool and Four Weddings and a Funeral, vintage blockbusters The Big Lebowski and Back To The Future, fantasy adventures Jurassic Park and Ghostbusters and timeless faves Dirty Dancing and Pretty Woman.  There’s also a couple of more recently Oscar-approved entries, including La La Land and Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.

To provide the perfect al fresco settings, this year’s London venues will include:
Bishops Park in Fulham;
Central Park, Greenwich Peninsula;
Coram’s Fields, Bloomsbury;
Ravenscourt Park, Hammersmith;
Manor House Gardens, Hither Green;
Kennington Park, Kennington.

Tickets are £12 for adults and £6 for under-10s, and you can bag yourself a weekend ticket for £25.

You’re welcome to bring your own blankets, beanbags and cushions or you can hire a director’s chair for £2. If you feel like styling up your cinema experience, this year Pop Up Screens are introducing VIP seats for £20 each that will include a chair in a prime location plus a free drink!

There will of course be popcorn from Drum and Kernel, burgers and craft beer on offer, and you can bring your own drinks and snacks too. In a new addition for this year’s programme, Harley Dogs will be catering at every weekend event: a Harley Davidson complete with a BBQ – what’s not to love?

Pop Up Screens’ founder David Leydon said, “Pop Up Screens is all about finding films people love and giving them the opportunity to share that love with their friends and with a whole new community of people that equally love that movie.  And when you’ve got hundreds of people all in the same place, at the same time, all loving the same movie, it creates a brilliant atmosphere and it is genuinely one of the best ways to watch movies and brilliantly I get to do it every night of the summer.”
