As summer is coming to a close, is there really any place you should be besides the great outdoors? Before our days become laden with wet streets and grey clouds, you owe yourself some time soaking in the warm breezes and fresh air. Still, often we find ourselves wanting to just stay in and do nothing. Luckily, Pop Up Screens is giving us the best of both worlds with their summer line up of movies under the stars.
Pop Up Screens 2016 returned to London on the 22nd July, bringing with them an epic program of classic films. With an plethora of locations like Bishops Park in Fulham, Greenwich Peninsula, Coram’s Field, Ravenscourt Park in Hammersmith, Manor House Gardens in Hither Green and East Greenwich Pleasaunce, you can look out for a venue near you or one you’ve been meaning to go to for a while.
This year, Pop Up Screens have also announced that they will be taking over the courtyard of the city’s historic Guildhall in EC2 for seven nights in August, which will include a special screening of the classic film Gladiator and the chance to see the Guildhall’s Roman Amphitheatre – does it get any more atmospheric? As for the other films, Pop Up Screens has put together a line up that is sure to have something for everyone. Comedies including Anchorman and Four Weddings will be shown, along with blockbusters Top Gun, Back To The Future, Jurassic World and Star Wars. And for a girls night out make sure to head over for Pretty Women or The Notebook, but don’t forget the tissues…
And what is a proper movie night without snacks? There will be popcorn (of course) from Drum and Kernel, burgers and craft beer on offer, but if none of that appeals to you Pop Up Screens has no problem with guests bringing in their own drinks and snacks. Unheard of!
Pop Up Screens 2016 runs until 18th September. Tickets from their website.
