The Rooftop Film Club have returned and announced a new line-up, bringing a summer of movies to Londoners. The pop up film event ( in association with British Airways) takes place across exclusive rooftop venues – the Bussey Building in Peckham Rye and the Queen of Hoxton in Shoredtich – from May 1 until September 30, 2014.
Movie-lovers can watch films under the stars in open-air venues, with the luxury of comfy chairs, blankets and wireless headsets to recreate the in-flight experience.
There are over 170 films to choose from throughout the summer, including new releases such as Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues and The Lego Movie to classics like The Graduate, Top Gun, Reservoir Dogs, Labyrinth and Casablanca.
Rooftop Film Club founder Gerry Cottle, said: “The Rooftop Film Club in partnership with British Airways has something for everyone. Our big screen, high quality wireless headphones and comfy chairs mean you can sit back, relax and experience film like never before.
“The luxury of being able to watch films under the stars in a completely unique urban environment, appeals to our loyal fan base who love its exclusivity.”
Putting the British Airways stamp on the event, the airline’s cabin crew will be on hand to welcome guests and chaperone them to seats. Chef Simon Hulstone, who worked with the airline during the London 2012 Games, will be creating film inspired popcorn for the event.
Abigail Comber, British Airways’ head of marketing, said: “In-flight entertainment is such an important part of flying, and this is a fantastic way to celebrate film. We’re excited to partner with the Rooftop Film Club, to bring a summer of movies to hundreds of film lovers.”
Screenings will take place in Peckham Tuesday through Saturday, and the Shoreditch events from Sunday through Wednesday. Tickets start from £13 plus booking fee and are now available at: http://www.rooftopfilmclub.com
