Film4 Summer Screen

at Somerset House
08 – 21 Aug 2019
Full line-up announced in May

Somerset House’s iconic courtyard transforms into London's most beautiful open-air cinema to host the ultimate cinematic experience. Over fourteen summer evenings, thousands of film lovers share in the laughs, suspense, emotion and excitement, under the starry sky. London’s largest outdoor screen and full cinema-quality surround sound ensure that audiences fully experience every look and every line of every film. 

Film4 Summer Screen also offers the chance to get closer to the people that create cinema. The 2018 season saw appearances from the stars of Hollywood, including Glenn Close introducing her now Oscar-nominated performance in The Wife, Michael Caine revealing the secrets behind the enigmatic ending of Inception and Jodie Whittaker talking about the experiences that have led her to where she is today.  As ever, more exciting appearances are expected for 2019, with an extra special evening to celebrate Film4 Summer Screen’s 200th screening.

Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House

One of the most sublime movie moments I've had. Open skies, open hearts, warm reception - it felt like the dream of how watching movies is meant to be.
