Watch modern and classic movies under the starry summer skies with Film4 Summer Screen open-air film festival at Somerset House.

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.

Choose from a mixed programme of UK premieres, old favourites and Cannes award-winning films in full surround sound. Before the movies start, enjoy DJ sets inspired by the films, special guest introductions on selected nights, and plenty of food and drink options; or you can even bring your own picnic.

In 2017, film screenings included An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, preceded by an introduction and Q & amp;A session with Al Gore himself, Donnie Darko, the UK premiere of Patti Cake$, Cruel Intentions, Jaws and The Philadelphia Story. Check back later for the confirmed dates and porgramme for Film4 Summer Screen 2018.
