Sky-high, pop-up cinema returns to Kings Cross

Every Tuesday and Wednesday in April and May, Sweethearts in the Cross is putting on free movies on the rooftop.

Watching a great retro movie over a few drinks along with a sympathetic audience is a tradition worth reviving in this era of stay-at-home, and at Sweethearts you can get popcorn and hot cocktails into the bargain (expect a salted caramel espresso Martini to knock your socks off). 

What's more, the line-up of movies is one we can really get behind, including weeks dedicated to Tarantino, Heath Ledger, Tom Cruise (back when he was cool), John Hughes and more. Here is the full schedule, along with classic lines to get you in the mood...
