Film4 Summer Screen Returns To Somerset House

The grandest of London’s many outdoor cinema experiences has just announced its lineup for summer. The Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House packs thousands of people into the Thames-side venue’s courtyard, to gaze upon a giant screen and be aurally wrapped in surround sound.

While most outdoor cinemas rely on 1980′s blockbusters and family-friendly musicals to draw a crowd, Somerset House opts for a more varied offering, with rom-coms, Bette Davis, premieres, gangster films, a Shakespeare adaptation, a western, and a Powell and Pressburger classic. But they’ve also found room for Gremlins 2 and Predator. Here’s the line-up:

  • 8 August – World premiere of Richard Curtis’ About Time
  • 9 August – Whatever Happened to Baby Jane
  • 10 August – Mean Girls + Carrie + The Loved Ones
  • 11 August – The Untouchables
  • 12 August – Guys and Dolls
  • 13 August – UK premiere of The Way Way Back
  • 14 August – Kes
  • 15 August – Throne of Blood
  • 16 August – Predator + Throne of Blood
  • 17 August – Badlands + Raising Arizona
  • 18 August – Crazy Stupid Love
  • 19 August – The Red Shoes
  • 20 August – Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
  • 21 August – UK premiere of Prince Avalanche

Screenings go ahead whatever the weather, so come prepared. Prices and times vary, so see the site for details.

Exclusive early booking for holders of a certain US credit card has already opened. Other priority bookings start Wednesday at 10am, and general tickets go on sale on Friday 24 May.
