09-22 Aug | Somerset House
Who’d have thought that with a climate as dodgy as ours outdoor cinema would become such a thing? But with an unseasonally hot summer to date, the augurs are good for this year’s al fresco film fest in the glorious setting of Somerset House.
All films in this year’s line-up reflect on “dreams, fantasies, nocturnes and reveries”, with a rich mix of hotly-anticipated new releases (The Wife, American Animals); old favourites (Rebecca, Sleeping Beauty) and inspired double bills (Labyrinth + The Wizard of Oz). Behind the scenes talks and guest appearances add to the fun.
A must for silver screen fans.
