Croydon‘s rooftop cinema is back in a new venue for 2017
Croydon's only open-air cinema opened in 2015 on top of a car park. This year it's back, popping up at a new venue, on the roof of the Centrale Shopping Centre from May 18.
The films on offer are a mix of old faves and recent blockbusters. Screenings start at sunset, the audience sitting on stripy deckchairs with blankets and listening via wireless headphones (so no having to hush chatty neighbours).
Lost Format Society is the brainchild of The Croydon Creative, a group of locally-minded entrepreneurs whose aim is to regenerate the area.
The 2017 season kicks off on May 18. Highlights inlcude a screening Charlie Chaplin's classic 1925 silent comedy 'The Gold Rush', with a live score by the London Mozart Players.
