The Best London Outdoor Cinemas |
Favourites 1

Fancy watching a film under the stars? You’re in luck. There’s now an abundance of al fresco cinemas in the capital, so to help you find the one for you, we’ve narrowed it down to the 13 best. Whether you want a wow-worthy location or fancy trying an immersive experience, these are the places to make the most of long, balmy summer nights.  

Backyard Cinema

With more than 200 deckchairs, giant two-person beanbags for snuggling, posh burgers and usherettes in retro outfits, Backyard Cinema is the hottest reason to visit Camden Lock Market right now. With screenings taking place from now until September, this is one to add to your diary, pronto.


BP Big Screens

Fans of the opera or ballet should check out BP’s Big Screens, running from June until September. Each screening is totally free, so you can get a dose of culture – everything from La Bohème to Romeo & Juliet, on the cheap.


British Summer Time Film Festival

Need a mid-week treat? Head to the British Summer Time Festival on a weekday to see one of ten films that’ll be screened for free. Pick from classics, such as Breakfast at Tiffany’s, or 2011’s hilarious hit Bridesmaids. Just make sure you get there early to nab yourself a space.
