Here is an idea for the film lovers; starting today (11 September) there will be free screenings of films at the Scoop at More London every week from Wednesday to Friday until the 27th of September.
This year the films to be screened include recent blockbusters like Skyfall and Les Misérables as well as classics like Hitchcock’s The Birds and Sergio Leone’s The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
The films will be screened alfresco at the amphitheatre next to the City Hall (2A More London Riverside, London, SE1 2DB) so depending on the weather be well prepared and take warm clothes with you.
If we judge from previous years, most of the screenings are very popular (depending on the film and the weather) so we recommend you arrive at the amphitheatre an hour earlier if you want to secure a good seat. As you are aloud to bring food you can combine the screening with a sort of picnic.
Have also in mind that the idea is that you sit and watch the film on a concrete (cement) flat surface so if you think you will feel uncomfortable bring with you a cushion.
All screenings start at 7.30pm. Here is the full schedule:
- September, 11 (Wednesday): Skyfall the latest Bond film (2012, with Daniel Craig and Judi Dench). Watch a trailer of the film here
