As a singleton, I usually look to movies to bring hope for this hopeless romantic. I like feel-good films with the heartbreaks, and many happy endings. My ideal Saturday night actually includes curling up in bed with a good snack and a tub of ice cream ready to watch a good romance movie. But this looks like a good option too.
Everyman Cinema is launching a Summer Love Film Festival in Kings Cross, a hub for all London central, bustling crowds and (hopefully) singletons just carrying on their day. It will be set as an open air cinema on the banks of Regent’s Canal, screening the tennis from Wimbledon in the daytime, and then moving on to a selection of films at lunchtime and in the evening. It’s a celebration of summer love in the city through a variety of diverse programmes, such as musicals, family favourites and cult classics.
It’s going to be one of London’s biggest and best-quality outdoor screens this summer, taking place on the canalside steps in Granary Square. Movies by the water taking place in the centre of this beautiful city? Sign me up! You’d need to book tickets, but it’s all free — And that’s a big yes from me!
It’s first screening is of Grease on 27th June, followed by West Side Story in the evening, and even Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet on 28th June. Call Me By Your Name and Moonlight are also going to be premiering in the nearby Everyman Cinema on 5th July and 12th July, respectively. Oh Timothée Chalamet, I still can’t get that peach scene out of my mind… They’re even screening The Lion King; it looks like a wicked schedule for this month-long experience.
If you are exploring London this summer, don’t miss out on this open air screening of movies, you might find your Romeo along these streets.
