Considering how crap the weather has been of late, it’s quite hard to get excited about summer in London. I remember summer coming in April last year, and there being no big, feel-good outdoor film event to enjoy with it. Now there is, and no guarantee of sun. Bummer. Anyway, good ol’ British optimism will see us through.
Pop Up Screens have got some kind of big screen which they run around London with, sticking it up in parks and projecting some of the most popular movies of all time. Tickets are cheap, there’s popcorn, beer, exotic meat (odd but true) and pre-film entertainment in the form of comedy, poetry and digital art. So it’s kind-of like an old fashioned day out on Brighton Beach but with an electricity supply.
The season kicks-off the weekend of Friday 6th July, screening Office Space, The Goonies and Labyrinth at Ravenscourt Park in Hammersmith. £8 per film or £20 for all three films.
NB. This competition has now closed. Congratulations to Eve Mahoney and Sam Casserly who won passes to the opening weekend!
