Pop Up Screens: Enjoy Your Favourite Films Outdoors this Summer
If the unusually good weather has got you dreaming about being outdoors instead of in a dark cinema, then you’re in luck, because Pop Up Screens’ summer season is about to kick off.
Get your film and sun fix all in one go with an awesome line-up of outdoor screenings, including Labyrinth, Footloose and more. With locations dotted all around London and classic films being shown throughout July, August and September, it’s time to grab your blankets and picnic baskets for a fun evening of open-air cinema.
As if you needed any more reason to round-up your pals for a night out, this summer Pop Up Screens is rewarding regular visitors with a loyalty scheme. Every time you buy a £10 ticket for a screening of 10 Things I Hate About You, Ghostbusters or more, you get back one shiny pound of credit. This means when you buy 10 tickets you get another absolutely free! What could be better?
Plus, if you fancy a family night out, under 10s and over 65s can snap up tickets for just £6, and all you film fanatics out there can enjoy a three-night outdoor movie marathon for just £20.
Cinema goers will be dining out on gourmet burgers from Black Gold (who supply Harrods!) and washing them down with cold beer and fizzy beverages on-site. Yummy!
Check out the outdoor screenings coming to a park near you this summer below, and snap up tickets for your favourites at their website before they run out.
Wasting no time easing into a stellar 2015 programme, Pop Up Screens kick off their season with a wave of nostalgia. Set against the picturesque Greenwich Peninsula, watch David Bowie and his hypnotic crotch in Labyrinth, swoon over Heath Ledger in 10 Things I Hate About You and bask in the boyish charm of Tom Hanks in Big, while being transported back to a time when school was rubbish, crushes were everything and rock stars were Goblin Kings.
The ‘80s are a big presence in the programme this year, and August brings with it some of the most loved movies of the era. Ghostbusters, Dirty Dancing, The Goonies and Footloose will all be heading to a park near you in all their synthesised, foot-tapping glory. Romantics will find a perfect evening in screenings of Four Weddings And A Funeral, When Harry Met Sally and Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet, beneath the stars. And if, simply put, you just want to watch a good movie that is not a remake or a sequel or a sequel to a remake, Pop Up have got you covered. Pulp Fiction, The Big Lebowski and Stand By Me are only some of the classic quotable favourites that will be making up a month of fantastic film.
Just because the summer is winding down doesn’t mean that life is over for the year. As the tan marks fade and the evenings grow darker, console yourself by belting out the songs of Grease in Fulham’s Bishops Park. Pretend you’ve got something in your eye for showings of The Lion King, Up, or The Notebook and revel in Alan Rickman's Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves at Ravenscourt Park, Hammersmith.
