It's SHOWTIME for our second successive Summer Screenings


Usually home to the big-name film premieres, Leicester Square is about to be transformed into the best outdoor cinema the West End has to offer.

Our Summer Screenings are back, bringing you a four-day festival of family friendly film to Leicester Square’s gardens. So, get ready to revel in big screen bonanza’s filled with fun for all the family.

Perhaps your looking for a little friendly advice ahead of our four-day festival of film?

Here’s our top tips so you can have a seriously special day:

Weather watchers at the ready


As outdoor cinema screenings go, the show must go on whether it’s raining or not. And as this is England, we must prepare for the sometimes-unpredictable weather.

We’ll be giving away FREE ponchos if the weather takes a turn for the worst. But a little rain never hurt anybody. In fact, it just adds to the fun.

Why not check the weather a few hours before arriving?

If there’s a chance of rain, we’re advising you pack a brolly and a waterproof just in case.

Whatever you do, don’t let the rain dampen your parade!

There’s plenty of FREE outdoor cinema seating


This year, we’ve got lots of comfortable seating for you to use. Plus, it’s all completely free.

So, bounce onto a big beanbag or pull-up a popular purple deck chair. Whatever you choose, they run on a first come first serve basis. If you snooze you loose!

Don’t worry if you come a little later and there aren’t any empty seats. There’s bound to be a few numb bums or some hungry bellies that need refuelling, so we’d recommend waiting around for a seat to become free.

But, why not pack a picnic blanket anyway? It’s always better to be prepared, just in case fellow film fanatics are having such a good time they don’t want to leave.

Plus, the grass is a little patchy in places, so we don’t want you to get a dirty bottom!
