Starting today (Wednesday, 2 September 2015) and for four weeks (until Friday, 24 September 2015) there will be a free film screening every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 7.30pm. The venue is the riverside amphitheatre “The Scoop” at More London (SE1 2DB).
The films to be screened include last season’s favourites like “The Imitation Game” (2 Sep), “Paddington” (3 Sep), “The Theory of Everything” (11 Sep), “Selma” (17 Sep) and “Still Alice” (22 Sep). There will also be classics like “To Kill a Mockingbird” (9 Sep) and “The Sound of Music” (24 Sep).
Some tips to have a great time:
- arrive at least one hour early (i.e. 6.30pm) if you want to get a good ‘seat’. Depending on the popularity of the film (and the weather!) it could become a ‘sold-out’ event by 7pm. You can also bring your one food and drinks (though you should avoid glass) and combine the screening with a picnic.
- bring something really warm to wear (perhaps at 7ish pm is sort of warm but by 9pm it could be freezing)
it has to rain cats and dogs for a screening to be cancelled or stopped. If it feels like raining before you go, take a raincoat or even better a small umbrella with you; and something (a plastic supermarket bag perhaps or a bin bag) to sit on the wet surface. Even better, bring something soft to sit on (sitting for two hours on a concrete surface is not great)
- sound could feel too loud for some so the further back you sit to the first row the better (quieter) will be.
