Rooftop Film Club – London, Summer 2014

Bussey Building 1


As summer is fast approaching, it might be wise for us to consider our cinema viewing pleasure al fresco in London and not in the American style of a parked-up drive in. The Rooftop Film Club, which began its screenings in Hoxton, have just revealed their summer programme for Hoxton but also the popular venue, Bussey Building, set in the rejuvenated and tip off to be the new Hackney, Peckham Rye.


Above the Queen of Hoxton and the Bussey Building over June the Rooftop Film Club will do what it does best, programming cult and classic cinema screenings across leftfield London packing in the best of East and South London on the roofs of two marvelous venues. Between now and September, there are some fantastic screenings taking place above buildings both in South East and North East London, which will have you tempted (with the surge of experiences such as Secret Cinema but at nowhere near the cost). Anything from relatively new The Lego Movie, Dallas Buyers Club to the more resilient, and long-lasting cults Human Traffic, Dazed and Confused, and Sexy Beast, are screening, culminating an eclectic programme; it is impossible not to find a film that you will wish to immerse yourself in, whilst lazing outside under the stars in the summer months.


This is a minor drawback for what ultimately is an experience, inescapable in these times, of watching a film in that pop-up cinema fashion, reminiscent of many a summer music festival. These pop-up cinemas that seem to be on supply and demand rather prominently at present, cater for the viewer’s need to be enveloped in the whole cinema experience, an inevitable reaction to the access to film viewing that the internet now provides. Hit this theatre soon to enliven film-viewing the old classics.
