Just before we say goodbye to open-air films and hello to cosying down for winter with a stack of boxsets, St Martin’s Courtyard in Covent Garden is hosting three nights of outdoor movies. Next week’s series is called Silent Swoon in honour of three of Hollywood’s finest male specimens. No less than 120 lucky winners will be treated to blankets, wireless headphones, fizz and posh popcorn as they watch ‘The Talented Mr Ripley’ starring he of chiselled jaw Matt Damon and Jude Law (Tuesday 14); ‘Crazy, Stupid, Love’ starring lady-bait Ryan Gosling (Wednesday 15), or ‘Rebel Without a Cause’ starring the original teen dream James Dean (Thursday 16). Tickets are free, and will be allocated on Thursday through an online prize draw.
