Time Out says

Watch a movie under the stars this August in Somerset House’s beautiful courtyard

Add watching a film at gorgeous Somerset House to your must-do-before-you-leave-London bucket list.

The festival is back this year in August screening a mix of red carpet premieres, recent hits and iconic movies. More than 2,000 film lovers fill the courtyard of the historic building every night. The full line-up is announced in mid-May.

Films start at 9pm, but our tip is to arrive early (doors open at 6.30pm). That way you can bagsy a spot and soak up the atmosphere with a picnic (no glass bottles), while listening to DJs playing music inspired by the film. And bring a cushion – the cobbles show no mercy!
