Screenings start between 9.30pm and 10.00pm and are absolutely free. There is no need to book, no ticket to buy, just turn up and take a seat by 9.15pm.
The unique riverside amphitheatre venue has a fantastic acoustic that, combined with surround sound, 35mm projection, a 7.5 metre wide screen and visually stunning films, promises viewers a sensory feast. Make the most of the beautiful surroundings and bring a picnic to enjoy before the film starts. Alternatively suggestions for restaurants and bars in the area can be found at www.pooloflondon.co.uk.
For everyone from film buffs, to Bond fans, to those who find themselves walking along the Thames riverside on a June evening and fancy doing something a little different, cinema doesn't get much better than this.
- In the event of rain or high winds the screening may be cancelled. A cancellation decision will be made 15 minutes before the screening is due to start.
- Proof of age may be required for films rated 15 or over. All children under 15 must be accompanied by an adult and are only permitted entry to films classified 12A and under.
- Seats will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. No admission once capacity is reached.
hooray... we saw Metropolis last year in what we thought was an uncannily appropriate setting - but the people who grabbed the deck chairs must have been there at least 2 hours before it started. Very keen...
Time Out are doing a season at the Serpentine in Hyde Park: from website:
During August and September, the Serpentine Gallery and Pavilion will be screening specially selected films on a 50ft screen, kicking off with Michelangelo's Antonioni's 'Blow Up' on August 12 and finishing with a short film night on September 7.
In between, the huge screen will show Alfred Hitchcock's 'Vertigo' (August 13), Jacques Tati's 'Playtime' (August 19), Charles Laughton's 'The Night of the Hunter' (August 26) and Yakov Protazanov's 'Aelita: Queen of Mars' (September 2).
If that weren't enough, the Time Out Park Nights at the Serpentine Gallery programme also features architectural talks and sound events, including a concert by the critically acclaimed German ensemble Zeitkratzer.
The London College of Communications at Elephant and Castle (used to be London College of Printing) will be holding a 4th contemporary Japanese film festival on 21-24 June.
They will show films of young and talented film makers' works which have not yet been shown in the UK!
