Outdoor cinema in London

The best places to see open-air movies in the capital this summer

Life is short, and so is the summer. On a balmy London evening, nothing beats watching a movie under the stars. Whether you want to shriek-along to ‘The Shining’ in a graveyard or catch a romcom in a gorgeous Royal Park or palace, add outdoor cinema to your fair weather bucket list. This list of London’s outdoor cinemas is arranged by month and Time Out’s film team will be keeping it updated all summer long.
