A two-wheeled environmentally-friendly alternative to drive-in cinema is coming to East London this summer.

Cycle-in Cinema encourages Londoners to cycle (or skateboard, or walk) to one of two open-air venues in Waltham Forest, where film screenings are being held.

The events, organised by Waltham Forest Council are all family-friendly, and adequately socially distanced, with pre-screening activities to kick things off. Take part in family craft activities, learn how to move at dance workshops, or let the experts show you how it's done in live performances. Qualified Dr Bike mechanics are also on hand to give free bike health checks and offer help with any maintenance your cycle may need.

Once the sun sets, it's all eyes on the big screen for the main event. The programme is a mixture of bicycle-themed films, family favourites, and Hollywood and Bollywood classics. Food is available to buy from local traders, or you can bring your own picnic and blanket

Cycle-in Cinema takes place at Leyton Jubilee Park, 19-22 August, and at Pimp Hall Park in Chingford, 3-6 September. All events run 6.30pm-10.30pm, with films beginning at approximately 8.30pm. Tickets are £2 per person, or £6 for a family of up to six people, and need to be booked in advance, with money raised going to local food bank Eat Or Heat.
