The Nomad’s Summer Of Pop-Up Cinema

Art & Culture

It's reached that time of year again when I face one of my more perplexing dilemmas – do I spend my time inside watching films or do I go out and bask in the glorious sunshine? Well thankfully I don't have to have any worries this summer, barring an unprecented hideousness of hayfever suffering, as The Nomad Cinema have prepared a full summer schedule of Pop-Up Cinema treats.

There's something for everyone on throughout the long-running spectacular taking place in a range of fabulous London venues starting this weekend. You can let your inner child loose, or just take your child and pretend it's for them, with screenings such as The Jungle Book (21st June), Jurassic Park (16th August) and the David Bowie/puppet classic Labyrinth (22nd August) or venture out to a showing of a classic, more adult film such as Pulp Fiction (20th September) or The Talented Mr Ripley (24th September). For me, however, nothing will beat the opportunity to once again experience Christopher Nolan masterful take on Batman when The Dark Knight is screened in Brompton Cemetery on 10th September.

I've also just been handed the rather exciting exclusive news that two new venues have been added to the summer schedule: Middle Temple Gardens where Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet will be screened on 21st August and The Hippodrome Casino (an indoor event) where Bond fans get the chance to re-watch Casino Royale on 31st August. 

If all these marvellous films are still not enough to entice you outside this summer, how does the fact that The Nomad Cinema donates 100% its profits to pioneering charity The Sustainability Institute in South Africa sound? The experience will be one that you're able to thoroughly enjoy and the added bonus of suport to such a good cause should only sweeten the deal.

You can catch the roaming pop-up at Coram Secret Garden, Queen’s Park, Fulham Palace and The Royal Parks – including Bushy Park, Hyde Park Lido and Brompton Cemetery. As well as gourmet food and drink vendors available at all locations, The Nomad has partnered up with a variety of thoughtful brands, including Divine Chocolate, Firefly Natural Drinks, Alma de Cuba coffee, Liberation Nuts, and Crosta & Mollica, to bring together a goodie bag for all Nomad audiences to enjoy. Isn't that nice?

So spend this summer having a cinematic adventure whilst soaking up the sunshine, it really is the best of both worlds.
