Nomad pop-up cinema

We all like the excitement of pop-up shops.  We all like good films.  Well HURRAH for Nomad then, who’ve organised pop-up cinema.

This latest spell of sunny weather has done nothing but fuel my desire for lazy summer evenings.  Good job then that tickets go on sale today for a number of films around London over the summer months.  Watch films under the stars in places like Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park.

Watch classics like ‘Some Like It Hot’ and ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ along with a host of other great films.  It’s all very hush-hush – but from their past screenings, you can probably expect live music, costumed ushers and audience participation too.

Check the listings and book your tickets here.

Tickets are also available for film screenings in cinemas now.  Prices from £12.50.

Agatha Christie Weekender

Not quite the same as a music event, but an event nonetheless – and if you like playing Cluedo in your spare time this could be the thing for you.

This weekend sees the British Film Institute host a weekend dedicated to the work of Agatha Christie.

You’ll have a chance to see screenings and onstage activity, and a carriage from the Orient Express will be stationed outside the Royal Festival Hall for you to have a gander.

Tickets for the screenings are available here, but be quick – there are only a few seats left for tomorrow’s activities.

Nearest Tube: Waterloo/Embankment/Charing Cross
