Posted in Film, London Reporter

We’re spoilt for choice in London when it comes to film. From premieres to festivals, al fresco and secret cinema – London has it all. This week we’re having a look at some cinema experiences with a twist and they’re all happening on a screen near The May Fair –

– Holland Park Theatre

It may not be the hottest August on record but that shouldn’t put you on doing things al fresco. Holland

Park Theatre is showing ‘Some Like it Hot’ on Friday 19th August and ‘Cinema Paradiso’ on Sunday 21st August – both at 8.15pm as the sun is going down and it’s the perfect time to crack open a bottle of your favourite tipple. For ticket information visit

Cinema in LondonCurzon Cinema Doc Days

At the Curzon Cinemas around the capital, there are plenty of film related events to get stuck in to. At the Curzon Soho they run ‘Doc Days’ – your chance to watch a documentary film and then quiz the director. The next one is ‘Sound it Out’ with a Q&A with Jeanie Finley. Check out for more details.

The Italian Cultural Institute

Along with learning Italian, art, history and musical events, the Italian Cultural Institute in Belgrave Square also has a host of films showing throughout the summer – we’ll be popping in on Saturday 2oth August to see ‘Le Cose Che Restano’. For details of what’s on visit

Roxy Bar and Screen

Slightly different to your regular cinema experience, the Roxy Bar & Screen has set a screening area at the back of the bar and shows different films weekly from Sundays to Wednesdays. Coming up are a few double bills – Westerns on 28th August and Brit Psych-Fi on 31st August. Check their website for more listings including sporting events

Cafe 1001

Join the East End Film Society every Monday in the backroom at the uber cool Cafe 1001 on Brick Lane. The society chooses film shorts for your enjoyment from around the world. Entry is free and films change every week. Check out Cafe 1001 for location details
