Sneak into a gorgeous London location after hours and watch a movie under the stars
It's location, location, location with Luna Cinema. The beauty of this outdoor cinema is walking into a palace, Royal park or some other equally magical location with a picnic just as everyone else is leaving.
Their most popular venues are Kensington Palace, Regent's Park Open Air Theatre and Kew Gardens. This year, for the first time, Luna will be also be screening at the Tower of London, Kenwood House on Hampstead Heath, Clissold Park in Stoke Newington and the incredible (and vertigo-inducing) Sky Garden at the top of the Walkie Talkie.
Our must-books are 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' at the Tower of London and 'Jaws' at Brockwell Lido – VIP seats are in dinghies on the pool!
Bring a picnic. Or try streetfood vendor Salt & Dry's BBQ or wood-fired oven pizzas.

I attended the Luna Cinema screening of Life of Pi at the London Zoo to coincide with the opening of the new tiger exhibit. It was great! Such a nice way to enjoy the warmer weather, sip some wine and generally soak up the atmosphere. Fans of the Somerset House Flim4 screenings will love this, its similar but you don’t have to sit on cobblestones!
I saw Ghostbusters at Kew last year with family and it was Fab...take chairs, food if wished as burgers etc are pricey and there are queues....and take blankets cos it gets distracting freezing your ass off! Great experience and atmosphere and well worth doing if you're well prepared :)
I saw the birds in Regent's Park. Was a great opportunity to see a classic on the big screen and in such a lovely natural environment. I would recommend bringing you own snacks and drinks, and in the summer, something to keep away the Mosquitoes.
Hmmm. Haven't actually been, but if planes are landing from the West at Heathrow, the aircraft will provide the movie soundtrack and you won't hear a thing.
