We have rounded up this summer’s hottest tickets for the capital’s best outdoor cinemas – now all we need is for it to stop raining. Although at present you’re more likely to be huddled under a blanket than lounging in an open-top car with Danny Zuko’s arm around your shoulder, nothing quite beats the feeling of watching a film under the stars. From the shadows of City Hall to a rooftop in Dalston, this year’s open air film offerings are more varied than ever. Our personal highlights include the Film4 Summer Screen season at the iconic Somerset House and Midsummer Night’s Screen at the Dalston Roof Park where good food, music and the coolest kids out east will be the perfect accompaniment to classic cinematic offerings (including teenage fave, Empire Records) all under the protection of the best emergency roof this side of Wimbledon.
