One of the highlights of the UK film calendar is without a doubt Film4 Summer Screen, an annual outdoor cinema experience which takes place at the impressive Somerset House. This year’s event will run from 6-19 August, with 14 glorious nights of world-class cinema to enjoy.
The line-up, which was announced earlier this week, includes three premiere screenings and a mystery musical screening which will be decided by public voters. If you’re a song and dance fan, you can vote for your favourite musical movie here. (Our pick is West Side Story, but we wouldn’t want to sway your vote…)
Summer Screen is widely known for catering to all tastes, with a selection ranging from classic cinema to brand new releases. The three premiere screenings this year are Gemma Bovery starring Brit-favourite Gemma Arterton (Opening Night), Guy Ritchie’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E (People’s Premiere) and the film we recently hailed as the latest YA adaptation hit, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (Closing Night).
The rest of the line-up is equally as exciting: there’s Studio Ghibli’s magical Princess Mononoke, classic Audrey Hepburn comedy Roman Holiday (which never fails to charm) and Jonathan Demme’s famous thriller The Silence of the Lambs.
A popular side event last year was the Summer Screen graphic art display and the exhibition will return in collaboration with Print Club London to showcase posters based on all the films screened this year.
Tickets go on general sale at 10am on Friday 15 May and are available online. For more information on this year’s line-up and ticket sales click here.
