This August sees the return of The Luna Cinema, which, since 2008, has consistently (and, some might say, doggedly, given the way that British ‘summers’ sometimes pan out) given us the special experience of movie-watching alfresco, under a darkening night sky.
The incomparable surrounds of Kensington Palace, with its history of royal intrigue and glamour, provides just one of the locations for The Luna Cinema this summer. You may just have missed out on tonight’s screening of Meryl Streep’s stellar performance in The Devil Wears Prada, but, between now and Sunday, you still have Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance with Somebody; Top Gun: Maverick; The Great Gatsby and Notting Hill to choose from. As a bonus, the age ranges of the selected films – PG to 15 – means that you can tailor your night to be one you spend with friends, with family or with a romantic other. Additionally, while you’re welcome to bring your own picnic (excluding alcohol) to the event, food and drink is available at each venue.
Upgrades, including blankets and back rests, are available to book online and collect onsite – and they’re subsequently yours to keep, for camping trips, festivals and backyard barbecues. Other London venues in which you can enjoy the magic of The Luna Cinema’s open air screenings this season include Regent’s Park, Kew Gardens and Wimbledon Park.
