Swords and Sandals: Outdoor Cinema Season at Guildhall Yard

From to

Swords and Sandals at Guildhall Yard Pinterest


Guildhall Yard embraces the epic with a series of Roman-inspired films. Classic or cult, enjoy some of your all-time favourites including:

• Monday 7 August: Life of Brian

• Tuesday 8 August: Pompeii

• Wednesday 9 August: Roman Holiday (yes, she wears sandals!)

• Thursday 10 August: Jesus Christ Superstar

• Monday 14 August: Carry on Cleo

• Tuesday 15 August: Gladiator

Delivered in partnership with Pop-Up Screens and supported by the Barbican, this is one (inflatable) summer screen not to be missed. Come prepared for all weather; bring a picnic, someone to feed you grapes, plenty of blankets and cushions; and settle down to enjoy swords, sandals, superstars, silliness and songs on the site of London’s first entertainment arena.

Plus, tuck into burgers from Hawksmoor, beer and cocktails. Enjoy pop-up events and talks on selected evenings. And see how the Romans did it with a visit to London’s Roman Amphitheatre which is open until 9pm.

Please note that no chairs are provided and no glass or bottles can be brought into Guildhall Yard for these events. Please dispose of your rubbish carefully.
