They had the outdoor cinema area filled with summer deck chairs and as we bought our tickets through Time Out online, we were treated to free popcorn too - yuuuuuum.
We went to see Sicario, which neither of us had seen before and it was my kind of film, I really enjoyed it. It is a crime-thriller film, about an FBI agent brought in by the government to bring down the leader of the Mexican drug cartel. It is actually on Netflix at the moment, so I would definitely recommend watching it!
The film starts as the sun sets around 9pm and finished when the sky is dark, with fairy lights lighting up the rooftop, as well as the city lights surrounding. Luckily for us it has been a warm day but they do give you blankets to use to keep warm as the sun disappears, which is such a cute idea I think. It's so cosy snuggling up in a blanket whilst watching a film outside in the dark. It was a perfect evening.
I would really recommend visiting an outdoor cinema in London before the end of summer, I think its such a lovely idea and makes for a very lovely, relaxing evening. I am very tempted to book another visit next month with some friends!
They have loads of outdoor cinema screenings going on all over London, Time-out have a run down of all the different outdoor/rooftop cinemas in London here or you can check out the Rooftop Film Clubs website here for all their listings at Stratford and other locations (Queen of Hoxton in Shoreditch, Kensington Roof Gardens, Bussey Building in Peckham etc) and remember if you buy through time-out online you get free popcorn - wooo! Haha.
Have you ever been to an outdoor cinema before? I would love to know what other ones you have visited and if you enjoyed it as much as I did!
