Film4 Summer Screen Returns To Somerset House

Film4 Summer Screen returns to the iconic courtyard at Somerset House in London from 6–19 August for 14 nights of open-air film screenings.

Ticket holders can enjoy a film under the stars with a drink and picnic, with live DJ sets and special-guest introductions to keep everyone busy throughout the night. The titles planned for this year include British cult classic Withnail and I, starring Richard E. Grant; Spike Lee’s incendiary 1980s masterpiece Do the Right Thing; the Quentin Tarantino imagined road-movie True Romance; and romantic-comedy Roman Holiday, which introduced the world to Audrey Hepburn.

These outdoor viewings are incredible popular, so if interested, head over to the Somerset House website and order today!
