Get a festival top-up at outdoor movie screenings in quirky London venues
With its laidback and festival-y vibe Nomad is one of our favourite outdoor cinemas. Popping-up in all sorts of kooky London nooks and crannies, they have some of the coolest locations – famously screening films every year by the tombstones in creepy Brompton Cemetery (this year iconic chillers ‘Night of the Hunter’, ‘The Birds’ and ‘Pyscho’).
Other venues include Hyde Park Lido and the courtyard of the Royal Academy. New this year: the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich at the Biscuit Factory in Bermondsey. Oh, and pooch-lovers, a dog-friendly screening of ‘Best in Show’ is in the pipeline.
The season runs from June to September. Tickets for popular screenings – Brompton Cemetery and the RA – sell out fast, so book early.
Bring a picnic, or tuck into Provençal street food from Madame Gaultier.
Best of all, as the little sister of the Lexi Cinema, all profits go to charity.
