Watch modern and classic movies under the starry summer skies with Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House.
The open-air film festival returns with a mixed programme of UK premieres, old favourites and Cannes award-winning films, including comedies, rom-coms, musicals, sci-fis and more. The stunning Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court provides the setting to London’s largest screen set against Somerset House, which itself has provided the backdrop to many movies.
Bring a blanket and picnic and head down to Somerset House from 6.30pm. Rugs, picnic hampers, food and drink are also available to buy on site. Enjoy DJ sets inspired by the films and special guest introductions from 6.45pm, before settling down to enjoy the open-air screening in full surround sound at 9pm.
