Pop Up Screens are back this summer to turn your movie dreams into reality, beaming all your favourite films directly into your local London parks. As well as satisfying any cravings for cult classics, this year Pop Up Screens will also be serving up bespoke Pop Up Burgers. The full details are currently under wraps, but it’s sure to add a delicious twist to the open-air film experience.
It goes without saying there’ll also be a fully stocked bar and it just wouldn’t be cinema without popcorn (http://www.drumandkernelpopcorn.co.uk/) and sweets.
There’s something for everyone during this season of Pop Up Films. If you’re after romance there’s The Notebook or Romeo and Juliet. If you fancy escaping with some fantasy you could try the Labyrinth or Blade or if you’re just looking for a laugh Dumber & Dumber or Anchorman are the ones to pick.
Throughout the summer, the super size screen will visit some of the capitals best-loved parks, including Morden, Fulham, Blackheath, Hammersmith, Holborn and Greenwich, with screenings kicking off around 8.30pm. Tickets can be purchased in advance at www.popupscreens.co.uk for £10, or a weekender pass to see all three films at any one location will set you back £24, with a bumper Season Ticket available for only £75 – that’s all 33 films for a little over £2 a movie.
Pop Up Screens founder David Leydon said: “If you’ve never been to an outdoor cinema, you should, it’s a must try. I know it sounds like a bit of a sales pitch, but it really is the best way to watch a movie as you’re in a park, with your friends and hundreds of other people that love that movie as much as you do. And that real love for the movie creates a special atmosphere you won’t find at any multiplex.”
